North Carolina Helicopter and Aquatic Rescue Team

NCHART is a highly specialized team consisting of N.C. National Guard and N.C. State Highway Patrol air assets matched with N.C. Emergency Management and local emergency services personnel that form a mission ready package for helicopter based rescues.  The NCHART program uses three distinct airframes based on mission needs.  The NCARNG provides the UH-60 Blackhawk and UH-72 Lakota airframes, while the NCSHP provides the Bell-407 airframe. Candidates for HART technician positions are chosen based on stringent prerequisite training, as well as a rigorous physical fitness evaluation.  These candidates then must pass an 80 hour intensive indoctrination course to be considered for the team. There are currently 47 rescuers assigned to NCHART.

NCHART can respond at the request of a local emergency management coordinator or NCEM Area Coordinator upon approval by the NCEM Duty Officer. Examples of NCHART missions include: Swiftwater/Flood Rescue Lost Persons Severe injuries with projected extended evacuations Urban or Wilderness High Angle Rescue NCHART trains on a quarterly basis in various skills ranging from swiftwater/flood rescue to high angle and wilderness rescue.

Emergency Managers may contact the state SAR coordinator, Derrick Remer, at (919) 733-2925 if they wish to attend one of the training events to witness the capabilities of the team.
