The “World Rescue Organisation” as it is known now was formed in October 1999. The inaugural meeting of the “World Council of Rescue Organisations” as it was previously known, was held in Melbourne, Australia.
The WRO draws on the experience of its member organisations and our partners to develop national bodies.The WRO produces training programmes and initiatives that assist rescue and medical crews whilst working in the post-crash environment.
The WRO is open to collaborating with various organisations, corporate and NGOs to promote sustainable safer roads for all users. The World Rescue Organisation is governed and managed by an Executive Committee and the WRO Committee which is made up of representatives of all the member organisations.
