UKRO is committed to improving rescue standards throughout the UK. Bringing together the UKs rescue services and developing their skills to serve the public.

We welcome you to the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation website, a quality resource for all UKRO stakeholders that includes new areas to support our continual push for Education and Skill Development as part of the World Rescue Organisation

As the Chair of UKRO, I would like to thank Humberside Fire and Rescue for hosting a hugely successful 2017 Challenge. With recent national events highlighting the professionalism of our emergency services, the 2017 Challenge again displayed why the UK Fire and Rescue Service is the very best in the world.

This years extrication challenge was supported by a host of sponsors, for which we are extremely grateful. The event was taken forward to another level with Ford Motor Company donating 60 brand new vehicles, allowing the scenarios to be some of the most trying we have ever developed for teams.

All of the disciplines pushed the competitors to new limits, and UKRO again provided a full education timetable to support UKRO advance professional rescue for the UK emergency services.

My personal gratitude to all competitors and fire and rescue services for attending the event and sharing your skills. I look forward to seeing you all again in 2018 where the event will be hosted by South Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

We are indebted to the continuing support of our sponsors and volunteers who are essential to ensuring UKRO continue to Advance Professional Rescue.

Steve Apter (Chair, UKRO)
