Potential Threats That May Impact the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Community

Fire and EMS employees regularly report that they are mistaken for police. Some Fire Departments and EMS agencies wear uniforms with badges and styling that is similar to law enforcement. Homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) that are inspired by terrorist groups such as the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) continue to demonstrate a strong intent to attack uniformed law enforcement and military personnel nationwide. Concerns are that the misidentification of Fire and EMS personnel for Police could increase the likelihood of a mistaken-identity attack by an HVE. For more information, click on the title above.
