UK Rescue Challenge in Lincolnshire
The UK Rescue Organisation's annual event was hosted by Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue in 2012.
Held on Lincoln's Brayford at the University on Lincoln, it saw 130 Fire and Rescue teams from across the UK compete against each other in a series of simulated rescues designed to test their skills to the limit.
Water rescues, car crashes and more were mocked-up to let visitors experience all the skills and thrills but none of the danger.
