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 to a boy, then Dixie also asks the girl if her best friend fell simply by running away from home, to recognize the boy found his best friend to be a liar. Brackett's efforts to save the boy from his abusive life fails in the legal system and leads to tragic results. Other rescues include a boy whose head was 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.
