Registration opens for the World Rescue Challenge (WRC) 2021 Virtual Challenge: 26 and 27 November 2021
The registration has opened for the World Rescue Challenge (WRC) 2021 Virtual Challenge, which will take place on 26 and 27 November 2021. The registration is now open for World Rescue Organisation (WRO) business partners and commercial organisations who wish to exhibit within the Marketplace at #wrc2021virtual. For those who wish to register they should visit the event site https://worldrescuechallenge.org. Like for so many others, the COVID-19 forced the cancellation of many events including the World Rescue Challenge due to take place in Miami, Florida in November 2020 and then again for the rescheduled event for the same venue in 2021. In order not to lose momentum and maintain the continuing training and development facility that the WRO and its members provide, the WRO executive proposed to run for the very first time a Virtual World Rescue Challenge Event.
November 2021 will see the virtual event take place, which will see virtual immersive training and learning for participants. There will also be sponsors content, forums and information throughout the course of the event.
The challenge will create an opportunity where participating teams can plan and safely manage an extrication scenario as part of a casualty-centred team approach through different stages of a rescue, discuss various options available and prioritise tasks to achieve a successful outcome. The team will take control over the XVR simulation software by distance and navigate through the scenario where they can take actions and interact with other agencies and the public as they would at a real incident.
The participating teams will be selected by the WRO member organisations. If you are interested, please contact your national member organisation representative. Nominations will have to be submitted until 18 October 2021.
The scenarios will be recorded on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of November and broadcasted on 26th and 27th of November 2021 on www.worldrescuechallenge.org
