Specialist Film and TV Cover

At Red Kite SAR we can produce risk assessments, medical emergency plans and other required documents prior to your production start date as well as providing fully equipped, uniformed and trained safety coordinators, specialist medics and rescue technicians for your production, both on and off the camera. In recent years we have provided location scouting services advising on medical and rescue facilities and needs in the local area for the production team as well as assisting with the writing of the risk assessments and emergency plans prior to production beginning.

We specialise in providing operatives with additional skills in remote medicine, confined space rescue, rope access and rescue and water rescue and safety and all our unit medics arrive on your production in a fully equipped (for both rescue and medical issues) marked or unmarked 4x4 or estate car that will be with them throughout your production.

We can also provide these specialist technical skills as supporting artists in front of the camera if required.
