2012 Lincoln Conference

Are Modern Day Vehicle Safety Systems Presenting a New Type of Casualty Trauma and Challenge?

Venue: EMMTEC Building, University of Lincolnshire

Date: Friday 24 August

This year the theme of CFOA UKRO Conference has been developed to compliment the Extrication Challenge itself. We welcome senior officers, managers and practitioners to join us at this year’s conference to hear from our speakers who are experts in the field.

Fire & Rescue Service crews are now spending an increasing amount of time dealing with road traffic collisions. As they work to rescue those harmed or worse from these horrific accidents, how can crews be better prepared? What is the impact of ever evolving vehicle design and new technology? Are we working in the best way possible with other agencies? and, what happens to those who suffer long term injury from RTCs? Is there more that could be done at the scene to help?

We aim to address these questions and more at this year’s conference by:

  1. Gaining a greater understanding of how vehicle design and safety systems impact on the type of trauma presented
  2. Understanding RTC survival and the long road to recovery from trauma injuries
  3. Review how agencies could work closer together for the benefit of the casualty
  4. Develop future thinking around extraction techniques and equipment design
  5. Delivering road safety messages tailored to societal need

Confirmed speakers include:
