Cape Town played host to the 20th edition of the World Rescue Challenge this…

Cape Town played host to the 20th edition of the World Rescue Challenge this week. Rescue services personnel from around the world gathered at Athlone Stadium to compete in various categories. They tested their knowledge and shared skills in vehicle extrication and trauma incidents. The event 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. One of members of the Cape Town Metro EMS team who participated in the extrication challenge is Andrew Holmes: “It’s a great opportunity to be part of this. Especially having so many international teams present here, the networking, the experiences you gain from it. Our country having one of the highest accident rates, we can actually teach them a thing or two as well, because we do a lot of road accidents and we get involved with a lot of extrications so we can share our experiences as well with them.”
