    “This tells us that citizens and bystanders have a very real and active role in stopping these events,”
    Sounds to me like sheer laziness on their part.

    ...unless they plan to pay us.

    Imagine firefighters saying this stuff.

    I have a NaHCO3 and a CO2 extinguisher downstairs, should I wait for the professionals to arrive before risking shooting myself in the foot?

    You mean like how they already tell us "that only YOU can prevent forest fires" or to not overload extension cords, or or to have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, or about dry Christmas trees, or...well any of the other fire various fire safety/prevention messages that they put out?

    I'd say firefighters already do say such things and that the police are behind the power curve in realizing that it's the citizens who can do the most to help prevent/reduce such issues.
