like rescue workers using cutting tools didn't have to worry about gas with overhead cams and the like?

My question is:

When would a rescue worker need to extract an occupant from the engine bay?Why would there be a threat, if all the dangerous elements are in the engine bay, not in the passenger compartment?

Or did I miss something?

Q. 1 - No, not usually
Q. 2 - There should not be, If the scene is managed correctly with good SOP
that why you might see both an engine and a rescue
Q. 3 - you did not

If I remember my training

Based on the article, high voltage cables are in the doors so they typically cut the roof off. Seems to me that makes a car rolled onto its roof difficult to cut open.
