Trivia:
Ron Pinkard appears in the pilot episode as "Tom Gray, M.D. " instead of as "Dr. Morton", as he did throughout the seven year run of the series.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: In the intro, four SCU tones are sounded for the factory fire. Since 7 units are summoned to the fire, with 5 of them being in Station 10, there should only be a maximum of 3 stations responding to the fire, and therefore 3 SCU tones.See more »

Excellent beginning, 10 July 2012
Author: Michelle Palmer from United States

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."
