Welcome to the UKRO Challenge 2024

The event is a chance for emergency services personnel to share techniques across all rescue disciplines.

This year’s national challenge will take place from 26th to 28th Sept 2024 in the historic Dockyard Portsmouth.


A long-standing product of the UKRO is the ‘Rescue Challenge’ which provides for a safe and controlled environment in which rescue and trauma professionals can trial innovative techniques and procedures and test new equipment that could ultimately be used at real incidents; this is known as the Rescue Challenge Concept (RCC).

The rescue challenges are open to all rescue and trauma professionals, irrespective of background, governance, etc. the priority is providing a platform to allow for information exchange, peer learning and effective feedback.


The UKRO continues to be committed to developing the RCC, looking at differing delivery models given the current/future operating environments and to encourage more rescue and trauma professionals to attend and participate.
