TIE: Firefighters, EMS

Standing ready to risk their lives for ours is a force of emergency workers dedicated to being there, no matter how dire the call. Not only that, but, as one worker pointed out, if you squint and sort of make your eyes go out of focus when you look at "EMS" on the emergency workers' shirts, it sure looks like the word "Elvis."
