West Midlands Fire Service First Aid & Trauma Challenge


The First Aid & Trauma Challenge will once again see teams of two who will experience visual and audio inputs from an incident that has been set up and filmed especially, in an ‘immersive’ tent. They’ll face a realistic trauma scenario and have 10 minutes to assess, treat, ‘package’ and hand over the patient to a medic.

Adding even more realism will be members of the WMFS Casualty Simulation Group (CSG) whose volunteers play the roles of casualties year-round for training events and exercises, complete with make-up and prosthetics.
