During catastrophic crisis emergencies in the city, the fire department takes the lead, with the acquiescence of the police and paramedics, in allowing metas and vigilantes to participate.
They reserve channel 41 on their radios, and issue a radio and fireman’s coat to any meta or vigilante that shows up on the scene desiring to help save lives.
Even those determined to stamp out the vigilante element in the city have been known to turn a blind eye to this practice; it is important to choose your moment, even when you are a crusader, and collaring a vigilante who is pulling injured people out of rubble who would otherwise die is in poor taste and offends voters.
This was most recently seen in the clean-up of the Ragnorok Wrecker’s assault on Downtown on August 10, 2009.
