For professionals IMO they do have to accept (as simply a part of the job) that their will always be risk, but that should be perfectly manageable, either by being willing not to take dumbshit risks themselves or simply by getting another job.
so, by your definition/statement, cops, coasti guard, firemen, arent really heroes!

they are trained and equipped for the tasks they under take...

true heroes are those that take an unacceptable risk without training or proper preparedness to do something for someone else's benefit... without wanting or receiving any compensation...
