A stray dog wanders into the station, and the firemen name him Boot, who promptly takes a dislike to John. Later Roy and John rescue a boy trapped in a hole. Examination of the boy leads the doctors to determine the boy has a history of child abuse. A girl runs to Dixie telling her she's giving the airplane, and also reveals she knows the truth about her friend. Brackett's efforts to save the boy from his abusive life fail in the legal system, which leads to tragic results. In other rescues, a boy's head is stuck in a basement window, Dr. Early frees a boy's hand from his father's sport steering wheel, and the firemen rescue an injured hiker from a rapidly spreading brush fire with help from Boot, who 'adopts' a different fire station.
