The World Rescue Organisation

WRO is committed to improving rescue standards throughout the World. Bringing together the rescue services and developing their skills to serve the public.

We welcome you to the WRO website, a quality resource for all Emergency Responder stakeholders that includes new areas to support our continual push for Education and Skill Development.

Chair's Welcome

As the Chair of the World Rescue Organisation I want to welcome you, on behalf of the WRO Executive and the WRO Committee, to our website.

Since 1999, the World Rescue Organisation is conducting its annual World Rescue Challenge, in order to enable teams to enhance skills and compete by performing under realistic conditions and measured against recognised global standards.

Our aim is to bring together rescue and emergency workers from all over the world to share, to learn and to exchange information in order to develop their skills in effective post-crash intervention and the development of combined rescue and medical care.

The members of the World Rescue Organisation are committed to spread the rescue challenge concept and global rescue standards and to provide sustainable training for rescue services and personnel in developed, transitional and developing countries with the goal of the host country becoming self-sufficient in Post Crash Responce, rescue from vehicles and pre-hospital care.

The World Rescue Organisation is a partner of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration and its member organisations represent the five continents of the world. We are dedicated to the goals of the Decade of Action for Road Safety by contributing to improve the post-crash response and thus to help to safe lives! 

We were delighted to learn that the WRO was recognised by the Prince Michael Internatinal Road Safety Awards 2022 as a reward recipient for our work in the field of Post Crash. This award is recognition of the work by the WRO and its members in the development emergency responders to road traffic colisions around the world and in their capability to save life after the collision.
