Roy and John rescue a trapped man whose engine fell on him, en route to the hospital Roy's link to Rampart malfunctions, and he treats the injured man without supervision; when the patient later dies from his injuries (and not from Roy's actions) his doctor excoriates Roy and the whole Paramedic program, which angers the doctors and Dixie, especially after a doctor dies from a heart attack despite all their efforts, and Roy considers resigning from the program. Dixie chokes down of Roy's decision. Other rescues include a motorcyclist gored by a bull and a boy and his dog from a burning house. Written by

Decision, also known as Problem was filmed simultaneously with Adam 12's Lost and Found. During production, the cast of Emergency! filmed a few scenes for Adam 12.
