Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) Paramedics are renown throughout the emergency services family for their ability to get to where no other paramedic can easily go.
Their highly intensive training means that where their colleagues see a hazard, then they see an ‘opportunity’.
But have you ever stopped to consider how you make the migration from being a ‘box standard’ paramedic to a highly trained, highly motivated and highly specialised ‘HART’ Paramedic?
Well, wonder no more because we have been sent this secret footage of a ‘box standard’ paramedic undertaking the rigorous selection process to become a ‘HART paramedic’.
As you will see from the video below, making the swap from ‘box standard paramedic’ to a ‘HART’ paramedic is NOT for the faint-hearted!
Hopefully, it all ended well for this West Midlands Ambulance Service Paramedic and he made the grade and thus will be spotted in-and-around the West Midlands area clambering in and out of small crevices.
Spare a thought for just how ‘tender’ his “undercarriage” must have felt having completed this highly technical feat of acrobatics with his kit bag strapped to his back…

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
