UKRO Challenge 2017

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are hosting this year's United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO) Challenge 2017

Join us from 9am to 5pm on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September at the KCOM Stadium and/or Princes Quay.

The UKRO Challenge is an annual UK wide event where teams of professionals from other emergency services within the UK compete against one another in disciplines such as:

  • Vehicle extrication (cutting up cars to safely remove casualties)
  • Trauma management
  • Urban search and rescue (USAR)
  • Rope rescue
  • Water rescue

Visit our Public Safety Village based at the KCOM Stadium and meet our fire safety dogs and the Safer Roads Humber team, have a look around a fire engine, find out more about fire safety and take part in fun activities around the KCOM stadium.

There's even more fun to be had around the dock at Princes Quay Shopping Centre, where teams of professionals will be tested on their water rescue capabilities.

With challenges taking place across two city centre locations, it's a great, fun filled day for the family.
