Recently, South Carolina HART had the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities with Greenville Health System Emergency Medicine Residency and Oconee County Emergency Services.The Greenville Health System Medicine Residency started in 2017 to train the next generation of emergency medicine physicians. This event was to help build bridges between the hospital and pre-hospital care teams, help GHS residents better appreciate their patients' experiences, and to improve their preparedness for caring for patients' from remote settings.
This exercise was a huge success and will increase the level of patient care provided by Greenville Health System in the Emergency Room setting. A huge thank you to not only the GHS Residents for allowing us to shed some light on pre-hospital response, but also to Oconee County Emergency Services for providing all of the logistical help. We thank you for the ongoing support!

#blockthoselanesOfficial company release:
Today, while working an accident on I68 at the 53MM EB, our squad was hit by a dump truck and a passenger vehicle while we had the shoulder and slow lane closed blocking for the ambulance. None of our crew was inside during the time of the accident, and no injuries where reported. The two patients in the passenger vehicle where transported to WMRMC with none life threatening injuries, the driver of the dump truck was not injured. This is the importance of utilizing our fire apparatus to block for the ambulance. It saves lives of the first responders working the scene as well as the patients. So please, SLOW DOWN, & MOVE OVER it’s the law! Our lives depend on it.
A special thank you to Flintstone Volunteer Fire Company, Baltimore Pike Volunteer Fire Co, Orleans Vol. Fire Dept., Allegany County Department of Emergency Services, Engine company 11 and all of our other brothers and sisters that have checked on us and offered help. It is appreciated.

The Rescue Team Leader (RTL), bears a heavy burden while in the air. These members are some of the most experienced rescuers, not only in the air but in their respective rescue fields outside of HART. They bring years of real world rescue experience to the table. This helps them make difficult decisions, fast.
The RTL is in charge of rescue operations being commenced by HART. They are the first rescue personnel to the door to size up any scenario and take that information and communicate a plan to, not only the pilots and the crew chiefs but to the rescuers as well.
After that, their job doesn’t end. They continually size up the situation and monitor rescue activity (see photo). Once a survivor is at the door, the RTL navigates that person to a secure seat. It’s a tough job, but we sure are thankful we have some of the best in the industry!
Interested in learning more about the positions associated with SC-HART? Keep following us on Facebook and Instagram, where we’ll be featuring each position in future posts.

During a training session this morning at Cross Roads Fire, a member of our community stopped and told his story of survival. Two months ago he was treated by team members locally and transported by GHS MedTrans helicopter for advanced care.
A survivor today because of the team approach to ensuring our communities and visitors are our first priority.
ONE COUNTY, ONE MISSION!During a training event with a FD today, a gentleman walked up and explained how instrumental our helicopter crew was in saving his life just two months ago. His story is why we do what we do. Thank you for sharing your story Ed!
If you have a story of how we helped you, a family member, or a friend, we'd love to hear about it!

Busy day today for #teamoconee. This morning members of our dive team joined Anderson Co, Abbeville Co & SC DNR on the search for a drowning victim on Lake Hartwell.
This evening Long Creek, Holly Springs, Westminster and Chetohla (Rabun, Ga) participated in a water shuttle exercise at the Long Creek Baptist Church. Following a couple of unforeseen obstacles, we were able to sustain 600 gallons per minute via a tanker shuttle in one of the most remote areas of our county. Thank you the Long Creek for hosting and especially Sawyer and Stanley for putting it together.
Our thoughts are with special family that is close to our team and going through a very difficult time tonight. Our prayers are with you and those responders who answered a call we all dread. ... See MoreSee Less
