UKRO Challenge 2018 Comes to Cardiff Bay
There's still time to visit Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay for the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO) Challenge. UKRO is a charitable organisation, which "aims to drive the national agenda on road death reduction, by pushing vehicle extrication to its professional pinnacle and showcasing other rescue disciplines."
Running until Sunday 30 September, the exciting event is a chance for emergency services personnel to demonstrate techniques across all rescue disciplines. The Safety Village will host a range of fun activities and the venue provides a tremendous view of the action, including:
- Vehicle extrication
- Trauma care
- USAR (urban search & rescue)
- Rope rescue
- Water rescue
South Wales Fire Service Rescue Teams have a very successful history in competing at regional, national and world level; with the Bridgend Extrication Team holding the titles of world and UK champions in 2016 and 2017.
