The objective of the World Rescue Organisation (WRO) Trauma Challenge is to assist in the development of Trauma related skills of firefighters and rescue workers to enable them to deal successfully with the vast range of casualty centered incidents.
Participating teams, consisting of two members of a fire and rescue service, will be assessed on their “lifesaving” capabilities during 2 ten-minute, trauma based scenarios. The teams have to assess and treat live casualties that simulate life-threatening injuries (fractures, massive bleeding, spinal/pelvic injuries etc).
The WRO Trauma Challenge will focus on developing and promoting life support skills of rescue personnel, which will allow them to fill the therapeutic vacuum until further medical help arrives.
