Research shows that worldwide there is one road trauma fatality every 26.9 seconds and that for every road fatality in developed countries such as Australia, there are three life-long disablements, 10 major trauma patients requiring surgery and 30 cases requiring medical care.
ARO strives to reduce this toll by improving the science and quality of road and trauma rescue services provided to casualties, directly reducing the severity of injuries.
ARO encourages its members to act independently and explore opportunities in the development of techniques, skills and innovation that may lead to better rescue outcomes. As an independent organisation, it has the capacity to broker new directions that may otherwise by restricted by government agency rules.
ARO is a membership-based Association, which applies all of its assets and income in the development and exchange of information, knowledge and skills in the fields of road and trauma rescue.
