Here in the UK, the emergency services are comprised of three organisations: Police, Fire, and Ambulance.

The Metropolitan Police Force in Greater London is the largest police force in the whole of the United Kingdom. They are organised separately in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. They do not routinely carry guns, as they do in other countries. Instead, they have a separate Fire Arms Division.

The Fire and Rescue Service are also operated separately in England and Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. It is still fondly known as the Fire Brigade even though the name changed in the 1970s. These days they deal with many things, including extractions from car accidents and collapsed buildings, etc.

Ambulances are provided by the four National Health Services in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Emergency care is provided by the ambulance crew, and in the Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments at local hospitals. These services are provided free to UK residents.
