    What is your role on a day to day basis?

    First Responder= ALL. Active, Retired and/or Related. Daily. (Active Duty Armed Forces, Paramedics, Fire Fighters)
    Normal Joe= Working Type (No First Responder Affiliation)
    Retired Armed Forces (No First Responder Affiliation) (Prior Duty Field Medics, etc)

    Replies below are your choice.

    I teach at at a high school , so Normal Joe.
    Except that I have to have a first aid card and CPR classes.
    Also I might be the "First Responder" , so to speak for one of my students.
    No matter what you do for work , a knowledge of first aid and CPR is a good idea.

    If EMT, meaning, that is your role, and daily job, I think you fit the "First Responder" option

    I've edited to make the poll (hopefully) more clear. :)

    I have been the first to respond a number of times, However to date no one has offered to pay me for it...

    So I guess I'll stick with "Regular Joe" Even though Blacksmith ought to count extra.

    I've hooked up an AED to a couple people, but I sometimes have to do that at my job, luckily not often.
    But I mostly turn wrenches.

    Taken everything from advanced Medic aid classes in high school to about 30 years worth of Red Cross and Industrial type first aid classes as well as Blood Born Pathogen classes and then the Boy Scout merit badge stuff.

    But I just drive Dump truck.

    Average Joe. But as an electrician, I've kept my First Aid, CPR and AED certifications current for many years. I've been first aid first responder on a number of incidents both at and away from work, but, it's not my job, just part of being an average Joe ;)
