Station 9, we meet the crew from Engine 9 with Captain Karey Wedemeyer on the "B" shift. The morning starts off with them getting new SCBAs, then, they catch a EMS run or two. Back at the Station, since it's the Captain's Birthday, everyone, including the cameraman, have to workout to one of Karey's workout DVD's, this should be fun. Late afternoon, a call comes in with a Cat stuck in a wall at an apartment complex, you'll find the the Captain is quite the animal lover, she actually works for a Pit Bull shelter in Fresno. 4:00AM, a call comes in, it's a structure fire.

It's 4th of July in San Francisco and we ride with Medic 2 to the the park – it's a head gash. We then follow Rescue 2, a few calls with E7, they help a man who just wants to talk to somebody. The Captain takes his time and shows the man respect. Next it's a possible fire in an apartment building which leads to a busy night including a large vegetation fire. Meet the B.C. who is about to retire and Division Chief Frank Cardinale.

Ride with E38 and Medic 38 as they respond to medical calls -- bus vs. pedestrian – and then a blackout keeps them busy.

The 2nd half of this 48 with Eng. 3's "A" Shift. Firefighter Silva is on a strict diet and a full regiment of exercises; he takes advantage of whatever time he has in between the large volume of calls at Station 3. A call comes in for an additional engine needed at a fire out in the west side of town. There's no hydrants out here. They are called off and head back to the station. On the way, they drive through one of Fresno's many homeless camps. They have overtaken the Downtown Fresno Area and it has become a very dangerous place full of drugs, prostitution and people that prey on others. A call comes in and they are out the door...and so much more.
