ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for firefighters to respect the limits set out by the Constitution as they carry out their professional duties and obligations in the U.S. Under Constitutional claims, the fire department personnel is entitled to motor-vehicles accidents, structural collapses, and special rescues. The Supreme Court affirms that although firefighters are exempted from search-and-seizure warrant compliance during emergency, pattern policy on rights violation must also be amended.
