UKRO is a fast moving dynamic organisation that is determined to push vehicle extrication to its professional pinnacle, to drive the national agenda on road death reduction and to showcase other rescue disciplines including trauma, line rescue and urban search and rescue.
Further, we are now a key driving force in the World Rescue Organisation demonstrated by our recent involvement in Ghana. We are also engaging and influencing organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the European based Global Road Safety Partnership in the field of vehicle extrication and rescue. The UKRO currently runs projects in two other European countries with a further eight planned.
Each year the National and World Extrication & Rescue Challenges grow significantly. The UKRO will expand its’ capacity and, in conjunction with its partners, maintain the commitment towards reducing road deaths through education, engineering and enforcement.
