Firefighters are increasingly being asked to deal with more demanding casualty related situations than ever before. Their skills in dealing with casualties at incidents are constantly being challenged.

This Challenge will allow a team of two personnel to attend a simulation of a trauma incident using live casualties, critiqued by UKRO assessors.
Through the assessment process, casualty care, confidence in medical protocols and inter service liaison will be enhanced.
The objective of the UKRO Trauma Challenge is to develop the basic trauma and life support skills of Firefighters and rescue workers to enable them to deal successfully with the vast range of casualty centred incidents.

Firefighters from all over the world will be assessed according to PHTLS guidelines on their “life saving” skills during a ten minute, trauma based scenario.

The Trauma Challenge will focus on developing and promoting the life support skills of rescue personnel, that bridge the gap until specialist medical help arrives. This is your opportunity to benchmark your performance against some of the best medical rescuers in the UK.
