The heroics of first responders will always have our endless respect and admiration. But sometimes the small, important ways they help citizens are just meaningful as the big rescues.
Take, for example, these two Dutch paramedics who arrived at the home of a woman who was ill from complications related to hypoglycemia. After she was taken to the hospital by ambulance, two of the emergency responders stayed behind. Why? Because also at home were the woman's five children--and it was dinnertime.
The two paramedics then prepared a meal for the entire hungry brood, even doing the dishes to clean up afterward (which is when someone snapped this photo). If that's not going above and beyond in the line of duty, we don't know what is.
