Responders to car accidents - how can they do it?

This isn't a confession - just a question. I just read a reply from someone who said she is a medic so it made me think to ask this here. What I  have always wondered is how medics, police officers, and firemen can stand to respond to horrible car wrecks. Everytime I see one in the news, I think about the people responding and what they are dealing with.How can they be so strong? It must be terrible!

I do it. im a volunteer fire fighter and used to work as an EMT. I dont know how i do it, i just do. I like the fact that i can help when people need it. It is my way of giving back in the community. 

I can honestly say its not for every one. it takes a certain person to be able to handle it

I worked with the PD for 3 years and its not for everyone. For me like the other person said I just did it and reacted to help. I remember the very first crash I went and will never forget it, I will just say it was head on and one driver was drunk. I remember the really bad ones but it has tought me to be safe in everything I do.

My nephew is a cop who responded to a wreck where a little girl was killed. It tore him up to no end. (That might be southern slang!)  I don't think I would be able to get over it.
