In today’s world when disaster and emergencies arise many communities around the world have emergency response teams and plans that are ready to be activated at any time.
Quite often the most visible providers of emergency services are first responders such as police, fire and ambulance personnel. These first responders frequently perform heroic acts and are often credited with saving many lives.
In emergency situations many local, state and federal departments and agencies join together to provide whatever level of response is needed to bring a situation under control. Some emergencies are so large and serious that they require the presence of military troops.
Another type of emergency response system is a home medical emergency alarm which many senior citizens and people with disabilities regularly use. These emergency response systems are connected to various emergency personnel who coordinate the appropriate response.
