NIOSH and the RAND Corporation released a new study that says the safety of all emergency responders (police, fire, EMS) needs to be improved.

Better planning, training, coordination and management procedures are needed to protect emergency responders at the scene of terrorist attacks and disasters, according to the study. It proposes a new approach that would make protecting the health and safety of emergency responders – including police, firefighters and ambulance crews – a key priority in coordinating the overall response to terrorist attacks and major disasters.
