Hazardous area response team

HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) is a specialist team of Service staff who have been trained to provide life-saving medical care in complex and challenging environments such as industrial accidents and natural disasters.

HART paramedics trained and equipped to treat patients in hazardous and high-risk environments, such as at height, in water, in building sites, and in collapsed structures such as after a gas explosion. They undertake extensive
training each year to respond to such incidents and provide optimum patient care, regardless of where the patient is.

They respond to over 8,000 incidents a year, just over a third of the incidents attended by HART teams nationally.
