“Police are a fraternity, fire personnel are a brotherhood, and EMTs are family”

A 2015 newspaper story mentioned “an old saying in the EMT business is that police are a fraternity, fire personnel are a brotherhood and EMTs are family.” It’s not known how widespread this “old saying” is. There have been T-shirts with, “EMTs Don’t Become Friends—They Become Family.”
