First Responders - Plan ahead to be safe on the scene

Every day, police, fire, and emergency medical personnel come to the aid of others. They respond to individuals, families, businesses, and communities in need and face unpredictable situations to help others. The environments that these workers encounter may be explosive, smoky, dangerous, messy, or violent. It's important that they don't put their safety at risk while performing their duties. Preparing for the scene and having the right equipment and supplies is crucial to their success as they manage these often chaotic events.
