Again, either a rush to write something quickly, or just indifference has shown up in "Patch"..... I commend your efforts to get news out to the Community in a timely fashion, but the use of inaccurate terms should be avoided. In this case, there were no "Emergency Personnel" there. Police Officers, Firefighters, and Paramedics did respond, and we should have enough respect to identify them by those terms. When an Emergency occurs, one, two, or all three of the groups mentioned above will handle the situation. As a retired Public Safety Professional, I would respectfully ask that you not refer to those still "on the job" as "First Responders, Emergency Workers, Etc. Etc.............

Hi Ed, thanks for the comment. I'll remember this next time I write a police/fire story. I sincerely meant no offense to the brave men and women who serve our community.

When I hear or read the term "emergency personnel", I automatically assume that it's one or more of those mentioned in the comment. I think to most of us, "emergency personnel" includes whatever responders would appropriately be at the scene to render assistance and investigate the circumstances. When we honor members of the military, both living and dead, we don't always mention each branch of service individually. I don't think the use of "emergency personnel" was the least bit inappropriate. Of course I pride myself in not being politically correct, so I'll make a special effort to use the term in the future.
