What's a "first responder"? Is it an EMT? A police officer? A firefighter? Or is it aRead More "homeland security" word? Are there "second responders"? Third responders? No offense to EMT's or firefighters, but I think these "security", fear-based words need to stop being used and we return to the words we used to use before some of us went insane after 9/11.

At least they weren't called "Heroes". A term used way too much these days.

The term First Responder refers to an actual certification put forth by the D.O.T in 1995, CFR orRead More Certified First Responder. As the needs of our communities grew exponentially so did the training by your community volunteers as EMT is now the standard certification. The term First Responder is still used as a generic term to describe the prehospital care providers that respond to a scene, usually describing police, ambulance and fire responders. The reason that term is still used is because even during a routine call all three sometimes respond in conjunction with another and saying First Responders is easier than specifically cherry picking what services responded to a call. Not sure how you drew the conclusion that First Responder was a post 9-11 fear derived term, but the assertion is not a correct one.
