What does the Trauma challenge involve?
Firefighters are often the first to arrive at the scenes of emergencies, like road traffic collisions.
They need to deal with often complex incidents in which people have been hurt – so they need to keep their skills up to date.
The UKRO Trauma Challenge is open to all UK local authority fire and rescue services and is designed to develop the life-saving skills firefighters call upon at casualty-centered incidents.
The Trauma Challenge will run over two days, with volunteers playing the roles of injured people.
Day 1: Teams of two will have ten minutes in which to assess and treat a single casualty in a ‘live’ scenario.
