Storyline

After Roy DeSoto encouraged Johnny Gage to join the paramedic program, their first mission was to face their staunchest opponent, Chief of Emergency Services, Dr. Kelly Brackett, to support paramedic legislation that means getting help to where it is needed most. While running two separate calls with Gage and DeSoto, their mentor and friend, Head Nurse Dixie McCall, is injured and knocked unconscious.

Excellent beginning
10 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is actually a movie length first episode about how the paramedic program got started. It's a landmark episode, since the beginning of paramedics has saved thousands of lives over the years.

In this episode, we meet the doctors and Dixie of Rampart, as well as Johnny Gage and Roy Desoto. This is the only episode we see Roy's wife. Besides them, none of the other characters are the same. In episode two, we get to meet the fellows of Squad 51 (though the chief in the beginning is different).

This series trumps ER and any of those other emergency shows. From what I understand, firemen were on staff to make sure things were done right, and these scenes were taken from actual calls.

Also, in the first few episodes Dixie and Cal are a serious couple, madly in love and talking about marriage. But within just a few episodes, Dixie just becomes "one of the guys."
