12/04/10 99 W - + 9 - 4 Highway Patrol Partners with Raleigh Fire Department to Reach Victims Faster

NBC17 this week posted this story about the helicopter rescue program that's partnered the North Carolina Highway Patrol and the Raleigh Fire Department. With the Patrol's helicopter and the fire department's firefighter/emergency medical technicians, they can more quickly reach injured victims that would be otherwise inaccessible by land vehicles. Before the program, the fire department would have to wait on a helicopter from Salisbury. The rescuers are available 24-hours a day. There are 15 firefighter/emergency medical technicians on the aviation rescue unit. Watch the story below:

Unless I am mistaken this would be the HART (Helicopter Aquatic Rescue Technicians) program yes?

For those interested in monitoring HART Comms we have the Talkgroups listed at RR.com: http://bit.ly/VIPERNC

The NCHART program operates with the NCANG out of Salisbury, I believe. Different animal.
