Managing Major Incidents

This page is designed to provide you with an insight into the role of the ambulance service in planning, preparing and responding to all types of major incidents and events such as naturally occurring incidents (otherwise known as hazards) or hostile and deliberate acts (otherwise known as threats) that cause infrastructure failure and/or mass casualties.

In this section you will learn about our Resilience Team and Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and how our specialist paramedics are trained to ensure that they are prepared for any major incident they attend.
