KILDARE FIRE SERVICE TO HOST NATIONAL RESCUE CHALLENGE 2020

Kildare Fire Service will host Rescue Organisation Ireland’s 12th National Rescue Challenge, which will be held in Newbridge Fire Station, Co. Kildare, on Saturday 18 April.

This is the only event in Ireland where both the professional and voluntary emergency services come together, share their skills and compete in two crucial disciplines of patient care – Road Traffic Collision and Pre-Hospital Trauma Care. 

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 advice from 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 to bring casualty-centred training and rescue skills to operational emergency personnel across Ireland,” noted Padraig O’Longaigh, Chair of Rescue Organisation Ireland
