Not the same thing.
I'm not paid with tax money to have the capability and qualifications to deal with any dire situation which may come up anywhere within a given jurisdiction.

That doesn't negate or minimize my need to have the means and gear to protect myself.

I'll be the judge of what are the probabilities that I'll need the final 'nth degree' of gear for that purpose.
