Welcome To

United Kingdom Rescue Organisation

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.

I am delighted to be the Chair of UKRO, a respected professional organisation that leads the development of rescue techniques. My thanks to Derbyshire for what was a dazzling challenge, as we look to the 2020 national we take away some great memories and new ideas which ensures the UKRO rescue challenge remains the premier event for technical rescue within the UK. Already our committee has started to move their thoughts to the 2020 event being hosted by Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.

As ever the UKRO could not operate without the support of all its volunteers, patrons, business partners and sponsors, I look forward to working with those dedicated people in the coming years to advance professional rescue, providing the beneficial impact of our charity to the UK and world, making people safer. 

Neil Odin (Chair, UKRO)
