ROI Press release - National Challenge 2020




11 November, 2019      





We would like to announce the Rescue Organisation Ireland National Rescue Challenge 2020 will be held in Newbridge Fire Station, County 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.

We are partnering with Kildare Fire Service who are hosting the challenge. We invite everyone to come to Newbridge Fire Station to witness the Challenge first hand. The Challenge will have many different learning opportunities for everyone 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 and 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” Padraig O’Longaigh, Chair of Rescue Organisation Ireland
