The meaning of "Emergency" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does “municipal “ emergency medical service and “law enforcement “ emergency medical service? mean?
A: “Municipal” means local or town. We have fire departments and small groups of police that serve our town or county, which is smaller than the state or country.

“Law enforcement” means police.

“Law enforcement EMS” is probably talking about “first responders.” When we have emergencies and call for help, these are the people who would show up first.

For example, if we have a car wreck, police come to write a report of what happened. Medical workers would come to help with injuries.

Does that make sense? I’m happy to help further if it doesn’t. :)
