The rise in active shooter scenarios over the past few years has changed how first responders approach their job. Instead of waiting for law enforcement to secure the area before providing medical care, EMS workers may join tactical response teams on-site, treating victims more quickly, but also putting themselves closer to the active threat. NOW is a movement aiming to raise awareness of this issue to help first responders be better prepared and protected.

First responders help protect everyone.
It’s our job to help protect them.
