The World Rescue Challenge (WRC) is a FREE EVENT with a difference. Firefighters from across the world will compete in emergency rescue skills to be the best – and you are invited to come and see for yourself how they rescue people from crushed cars, collapsed buildings, great heights or from water. And the best part is that it’s all absolutely FREE.
The WRC will be at ExCeL London, which is an Olympic venue at One Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, London E16 1XL
Come and see firefighters from around the world compete in extrication challenges (cutting trapped casualties out of cars), trauma challenges, rope rescue demonstrations, USAR demonstrations (Urban Search and Rescue) and more. Full details area available on the World Rescue Challenge page.
