    Right here


    Well I'm no expert, but I'd say that 'responders' covers any emergency personnel that are responding (medics, police, etc) Where as firefighters obviously only describes them. Does that help?
    Watch the time go right out the window ..... it starts with one thing, but in the end nothing really matters.

    Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-8) defines first responders as:
    “…Those individuals who in the early stages of an incident are responsible for the protection and preservation of life, property, evidence, and the environment, including…emergency management, public health, clinical care, public works, and other skilled support personnel (such as equipment operators) that provide immediate support services during prevention, response, and recovery operations.”
