    I am a Firefighter and Medical First Responder, I often have to drive my on pov to the scene. As a holder of a CHCL( Concealed Handgun Carry License) from AR. I most always have my pistol with me. I do not carry a pistol on the Medical scene or fire scene, but it is in my pickup. I have read several stories about first responders being shot at upon arrival or shortly after on scene , and even killed. What is your thoughts about being prepaired incase of an asult on duty from the ones you are trying to help, and what would you do if there were no LEOs around to help you are your brothers?

    Hey James,

    Here in NC, when I have responded to calls (Medical or Fire) I have had my pistol with me also. Just like you I have to leave it in my POV. We both know that the scene size up starts at the initial call when it comes out. Sometimes it is hard to tell. We responded to a call that was not bad until I realized that there was a .22 up on the mantle in this homeowners house. It was a dispute between neighbors that upset the homeowner and resulted into a resp. distress call. I didn't believe that my life was in danger but we blocked the firearm with the biggest responder we had until the call was over. I understand what you are saying, it is risk each time we go to a call. Sometimes we have to protect ourselves and our fire department/ EMS family as well in the event of something like this. I'm going home to my family whatever it takes. I don't want to hurt anyone because I am there to help, but I will protect myself.
