Station update - July 2015

The UK Rescue Organisation (UKRO) held the 2015 National Rescue Challenge at Fire Service College on Friday 31 July and 1 August. 

A team of six from Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue entered the Vehicle Extrication Challenge.

A group of firefighters

23 teams compete from all over the UK and the OFRS team placed fifth overall with the OIC placing third for command.

The teams are assessed in their medical, command and technical ability by volunteers from fire and rescue services across the UK and Ireland and the NHS.

Day one: 20 minute standard scenario with a live casualty trapped in a car on its side.

A crashed car with firefighters working to extract a casualty.

Day two: 30 minute complex scenario involving two casualties, one of whom has injuries of a time critical nature and requires extricating rapidly from the vehicle, the other casualty had a simulated entrapment in the foot well.

As a result of this performance, the team has been put forward to represent the UK at the World Rescue Challenge in Portugal in October 2015 - training to start in earnest!
