Introduction </p><p>Firefighters and Rescue workers are increasingly being asked to deal with more </p><p>challenging casualty related situations than ever before. Their skills in dealing with </p><p>casualties at incidents are constantly being challenged. </p><p>The objective of the World Rescue Organisation (WRO) Trauma Challenge (TC) is to </p><p>assist in the development of Trauma related skills of firefighters and rescue workers to </p><p>enable them to deal successfully with the vast range of casualty centered incidents. </p><p>Participating teams will be assessed on their lifesaving capabilities during a ten </p><p>minute, trauma based scenario. </p><p>The WRO TC will focus on developing and promoting life support skills of rescue </p><p>personnel, which will allow them to fill the therapeutic vacuum until further medical help </p><p>arrives. </p><p>2. The Mission </p><p>To provide a platform for rescue personnel from around the world to come together, in </p><p>order to enhance and develop competence levels in first responder trauma care. </p><p>3.
