UKRO Business Plan Launched

I am very pleased to announce the release of the new UKRO business plan which was officially launched at the Emergency Services Show 2014. Given the financial challenges many of us face it was vital that we set out clearly who we are, what we aim to achieve and how.  This then ensures we adopt a value added approach to any services who support UKRO and those organisations who look to sponsor and support us to ensure we remain a viable organisation.

Thanks to all volunteers within UKRO who ensure we continue to Advance Professional Rescue.
