Emergency relief services is a category that includes first responders, firefighters, and those who provide emergency medical services in hospitals. The health care industry continues to grow with the population, and as people live longer, they require more services. At the same time, natural disasters, such as last year's wildfires in California, are becoming more frequent and require a greater number of emergency responders.
