A day in the life of a first responder can be stressful, but it's also rewarding.

First responders are often called in when there is an emergency situation. They may have to deal with situations that are dangerous or even life-threatening. They work with people from all walks of life and come into contact with people who are often in difficult situations—which means they need to remain calm and collected while treating those people with compassion.

Shoot or don’t shoot. That is the question.

For law enforcement officers, it’s a dilemma they’re trained for. Every day they face the possibility that they may have to use deadly force to protect themselves or others.
