999 Rescue Squad – Tuesday nights on W
Air’s brand new series following the work of a specialist ambulance HART team is now showing on Tuesday nights at 10pm on UKTV’s “W” Channel.
The 10 part series follows the work of the Yorkshire’s Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) as it tackles the most critical cases in the most dangerous places.
This is the first time that an ambulance service in the UK has allowed cameras to follow its HART paramedics.
Mike Shanahan, Head of Special Operations at Yorkshire Ambulance Service, said: “I’m delighted that the work of our HART is being showcased in this exciting TV series.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to highlight how our highly trained paramedics work alongside their colleagues in Yorkshire Ambulance Service and the other emergency services in some of the most precarious and life-threatening situations.
Series Producer Matt Richards said: “HART’s skillset and their base in urban Leeds means drama comes almost every day – we went to two stabbings and a murder in just one shift. Industrial accidents, sieges, shootings, fires, major RTCs and police-related incidents are regular events.”
999 Rescue Squad is on W at 10pm on Tuesday nights. W is available on Sky 109/245, Virgin 124/191, BT 311 and TalkTalk 407, and on demand on Sky and Virgin.
