Rescue and competitions: our vehicle extrication and trauma team

Hampshire’s highly successful Vehicle Extrication and Trauma Team has won awards at all levels.  They are multiple World Champions, European Champions, National Trauma Champions as well as being World Ambassadors to the fire and rescue services . The team, which will celebrate 30 years of competitive rescue in 2015, has a reputation that shares their knowledge with the motto “Sharing Skills – Saving Lives”.

The team is made up of core rescue training staff alongside operational firefighters serving in both wholetime (fulltime) and retained (part-time) duty systems from across Hampshire.  They are integral in evaluating techniques and reviewing new equipment in the development of the Service’s road traffic collision response strategies and policies.

For further general information you can visit the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation, the Word Rescue Organisation or for more direct enquiries, please contact the Team Liaison Officer, Lee Havey.
