The study of crime or criminal justice involves an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis and understanding of crime, including its causes, consequences, management, and prevention. The Canadian criminal justice system, as a structure, includes all those elements that attempts to manage, punish, and prevent crime such as private and public law enforcement agencies and corrections, the judicial system, and related domains like Customs and Excise, Immigration, and Social Services.
Firefighting is a profession that involves not only the fighting, managing, and prevention of fires but also responding and attending to other emergencies, such as cleaning up hazard materials spills, performing search and rescue operations, and providing immediate medical attention to injured parties.
