Station 7, Division in the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco, prominently Latino, but becoming more of the hipsters everyday. Eng. 7 is out the door to a medical call at the trolley terminal, later in the night, a call comes in from the smell of smoke coming from a garage, the Battalion arrived on-scene, did we mentioned, in San Francisco food on the stove can burn an entire block.

From training to saving a life, and it's not even noon.

Many combination Depts egos get in the way of the job, not at Westampton. Here, you can't tell who is paid and who is a volunteer and that's why we are filming here. In this show, we ride with both to a fire. The morning starts off with an auto accident at a very dangerous well-known "T" intersection. Then comes the pranks.

Station 17, roll-call. The young Probie, you've seen him in several early webisodes....arrives to his first real roll call. And as usual, just after roll-call... he's transferred to Station 10; we'll catch up with him later. So, we hang with Rescue 17's crew, EMS call to a muni-bus, next call, smoke at a restaurant. Night falls, a call comes in, it's a structure fire just down the street and who do we find at his first fire?

Sta. 11, Father was a Captain here and now his son is the new Captain.

Morning, Engine 33 is out the door and down the road, they get on thier gear, Brian Stolly talks about being a Kentland man and a D.C Firefigher. We arrive on scene of vehicle accident. Back at the Station, a call comes in for a structure fire, both Engine 33 and Rescue 33 respond out the door. A day full of calls...then, we ride with one of the live-in volunteer firefighters in the buggy to a Box Call, this could be a fire...it's at the Six Flags Theme park and by the Radio Chatter, it's HUGE.

Rescue 17 – a driver possibly on Heroin gets his high taken from him.

This 24/7 starts with roll-call at Station 17, this roll-call includes Deputy Chief Whiting, now the Assistant Chief. The Columbus Fire Department maintains the hydrants so seasonally, twice a year, they all must be tested, maintained or reported for service. Next, a tour of the Rescue rig with one of the technicians, he shows us the tools they use. Next, we ride on Engine 17 to a vehicle fire, it's blazing, then, a man down on a bike, then they catch another call, busy station.
