Massive congratulations to the London team, they have won themselves the award winning Reach and Rescue Pole Kit which we hope will assist them in many water rescues to come in their area.

The aim of the UKRO Water Rescue Challenge was to bring teams of ware rescue personnel who were keen to display their capabilities and expand their practical skills and expertise whilst also learning from their peers. One of the key aspects of the challenge was to transfer skills to other groups to ensure the skill base across UKFRS is constantly enhancing and expanding.
