Rescue Organisation Ireland’s National Rescue Challenge 2020 will be held in Newbridge Fire Station, Co. Kildare on Saturday 18 April 2020.

The 12th Rescue Organisation Ireland National Rescue Challenge is designed for all emergency services, both professional and voluntary, to come together to demonstrate and share their skills in two elements, road traffic collision and pre-hospital trauma care.  This is the only event in Ireland where domestic and international emergency services come together, share skills and compete in these two crucial disciplines of patient care.

ROI is partnering with Kildare Fire Service who will host the challenge, and everyone is invited to come to Newbridge Fire Station to witness the challenge first hand. The event will have many different learning opportunities, including agricultural-based scenarios in association with Macra na Ferma, a free and open-to-the public CPR Challenge in partnership with the Irish Heat Foundation, plus road safety with the Road Safety Authority.

 “It is our ambition that the 2020 Rescue Organisation Ireland National Rescue Challenge will see more organisations than ever working together bringing casualty centred training and rescue to operational emergency personnel across Ireland,” noted Padraig O’Longaigh, Chair of Rescue Organisation Ireland
