Specialist Response to a Marauding Terrorist Attack (MTA)


This interoperable capability revolves around specialist operations ambulance staff providing the NHS specialist healthcare response to acts of terrorism involving explosive devices, firearms, knives and / or weaponised vehicles.

Unfortunately, there have been several high-profile terrorist attacks on UK soil in recent years which have seen significant numbers of deaths and serious injuries associated with them.

The management of these incidents is extremely challenging for the emergency services, calling for a multi-agency joined up approach to ensure the effective command and control of the incident, the rapid deployment of key staff to the scene and the fast, safe and effective treatment and extrication of patients to local receiving hospitals.
