Just out of interest, what does HART stand for?

Added by Yelp Bullhorn on 07 September 2010.
Hi, it means Hazardous Area Response Team. It is for when any dangerous chemicals might been involved in a fire or any other job, and if there are any casualty. They go in and get them with the firefighters, in full chemical suits and treat them on scene.

Hope this helps.

Hi - As you'll no doubt be aware, these HART units are to be found far and wide now, so could I just ask do you have the registration numbers of these two of the London ones please ?

Added by Ian Moore on 08 September 2010.
Thanks for that, Mark. It's interesting to see how the fire and ambulance services are no longer poles apart; they seem to be getting closer, if that makes sense: paramedics in chem suits and BA; and firefighters wielding defibrillators.

What also has to be remembered of course is that control vehicles of al three services have always parked together - this being especially true of London.

Ian the HART facing is WX58KYE. I do not know the bodybuilder though.

Added by Peter Williams on 12 September 2010.
Thanks a lot Peter - the bodywork is by W.H. Bence. Is that the second of the pair that's parked up back to back with that which you've now identified ?

Added by Ian Moore on 13 September 2010.
58KYE is facing the same way as the LFB unit. I cannot see the reg of the other one I am afraid though I do have a photo at the back. Are Bence ambulance vehicles rare? I know they bodied fire appliances - incl one on this site.
