A firefighter from Miami, in the United States, Maggie Castro, says they went through…

A firefighter from Miami, in the United States, Maggie Castro, says they went through intense training while preparing for this year’s World Rescue Challenge at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town. Rescue services personnel from around the world gathered to compete in various categories. They tested their knowledge and shared skills in vehicle extrication and trauma incidents. The competition was hosted by the South African Medical Rescue Organisation and the World Rescue Organisation. Thirty teams, comprising six members each, competed against each other in the vehicle extrication challenge, while 24 teams participated in the trauma competition. Castro says the training helps them provide better care to patients: “We ask volunteers from our own department, we ask firefighters to come play victims for us and it changes their whole perspective when they are the victim inside of the car. It’s a very different experience and we have been told by everyone that has participated as a victim that it has completely changed their perspective when they go to a car accident after that point. They understand that the victim is scared, that the victim is going through something that they had not imagined before.”
