About the show
RAPID RESPONSE follows the life-threatening and emotionally charged situations encountered by St John Ambulance Officers as they tend to and save the lives of people in their homes, work-places and on the streets.
Narrated by Harry Lyon, Rapid Response delivers diverse and moving real-life medical emergency stories.
In this all-new series, we accompany previously featured Advanced Paramedics such as Nick Scott who is called to a viscous dog attack; John Takerei as he is confronted with the trauma of a Boy Racer car crash and an alcohol fuelled assault; and Mike McAuley when he tends to a man suffering his sixth heart attack.
In the previous series, Advanced Paramedic and volunteer
lifeguard Stefan Gabor, attempted to save a man swimming out to sea
with his bible. In this latest series he arrives at a party
that has turned ugly and is confronted by a man dressed as
Jesus. Stefan also tends to a couple when a wedding ends in
tears, and for the first time, our cameras go beyond the workplace
and join Stefan at his own wedding.
