But presumably they still need someone to be able to tell them what they are responding to. In the case of disease or chemical pollution that is not always obvious and there is no point turning up with vaccines for Ebola for instance and it turns out to be Lassa Fever ( the symptoms are near identical but the pathogen is different). In the hopefully unlikely event of a biological emergency (say through the use of bio war techniques by terrorists) it's that biopsy work that first needs to be done ASAP
