This year, the top place is shared jointly between firefighters and paramedics. Firefighters, in the words of one poll participant from Queensland, are worthy of our trust because, “Anyone running into a burning building when everybody else is running out deserves your full trust.” The nation’s paramedics are similarly unflappable. “They have the most responsible job of all to do, saving lives first hand,” comments a poll participant from South Australia.
