The World Rescue Organisation is committed to improving technical rescue standards by bringing together rescue and medical services throughout the World to develop and share essential post incident skills and knowledge. In doing so the WRO is contributing to the reduction of unintentional injuries and the promotion of gold standards for combined rescue and medical care.

I am very proud to be part of this unique organisation which promotes and continues to develop the rescue challenge concept, global rescue standards, effective post incident intervention and the development of combined rescue and medical care around the world.
