UKRO 2018 Challenge | Cardiff | 27-29 September 2018

Why, When and Where

It only seems like yesterday we were at the UKRO 2017 Challenge in the 2017 City of Culture, Hull, but UKRO 2018 Challenge is now just around the corner. We are pleased to be supporting the event as a sponsor for the third year running and we are also sponsoring the Extrication and Trauma Team from Hampshire Fire and Rescue again too.

We believe that the UKRO Challenge provides an excellent opportunity for everyone taking part to develop their skills, as both teams and individuals, across the disciplines by sharing experiences and watching how others approach the challenges.  Although the event is part of a competition it represents teamwork and shared success at it's best. We are excited to attend and hope you will join us there to help cheer everyone along.

The UKRO 2018 Challenge will be held at the Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay, Wales from 27 - 29th September and from what we can tell, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service are pulling out all the stops for a great event.  The public will have unprecedented access to the series of challenges being faced by competing teams.

As always, the event will be a chance for teams to demonstrate their skills and enhance their knowledge in the following disciplines:

  • Vehicle Extrication
  • Trauma Care
  • USAR (Urban Search and Rescue)
  • Rope Rescue
  • Water Rescue

What we will be showcasing

Our team will be on site throughout the event at our stand where we will be showcasing a selected range of products best suited for Fire and Rescue Services.

Our stand will feature:

 IEC Fire Response Bag 
Response bags and equipment solutions specially developed for Fire and Rescue Service including the modular Immediate Emergency Care (IEC) response bag used by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and our First Response Fire Bag created for Leicestershire Fire and Rescue

 Saviour Medical Technical Rescue Stretcher 
The Saviour Medical Technical Rescue Stretcher - designed for confined space rescue as well as horizontal and vertical lifting.

Sadly, limited space means we can't bring all of our products along, but we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  If you or your service are looking for medical solutions we would be happy to discuss any opportunities of working together.  You may like to read about our work with Hampshire Fire and Rescue here.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the teams taking part the best of luck.  We look forward to seeing you all in action and hope you will come and visit us on our stand during the event.
