First responders risk their lives every day to protect the citizens of California. Even when first responders are far away from home, if confronted with danger, they will rush in to help. Injury can happen at any time, but this does not deter them from performing daring rescues in an attempt to save the lives of others. They have done this while out of state and not knowing if they were eligible for workers' compensation.
A mass shooting occurred in Las Vegas in October of 2017. Several off-duty first responders were in the crowd that was attacked. They reacted as they were trained to and got many people to safety. Some of the first responders were injured in the process of attempting to save other people's lives.
