HART has been operating within West Midlands since 2008 where we began with the USAR element only. A specialist HART Manager was appointed as the programme moved into full implementation and the full recruitment began. The team became fully HART capable in 2009 and have had the TMP and IWO skill sets since 2010. The WMAS HART Manager is also the Chair of the National Operations Group for HART.
