First responders often injured as they work to save lives
First responders are emergency personnel trained to respond to accidents and provide medical care for any accident victims. First responders include police officers, firefighters, EMT's, search and rescue volunteers, volunteer fire fighters, lifeguards and lay rescuers.
Recent fires and accidents in Vermont highlight the importance of first responders. Volunteer and paid firefighters responded to and kept under control a brush fire off Central Shaft Road in Vermont. In the same weekend volunteer firefighters responded to a motorcycle accident that injured four.
Though first responders act quickly and work to save others, they are often put in risky situations that can and do injure and kill thousands each year.
