Roy passes the Engineer's exam, but accepting the promotion means leaving the paramedics--and John--and talks over his decision with Drs. Brackett and Early. The firemen handle a fog-caused multi-vehicle accident on the San Diego Freeway, resulting in numerous deaths and injuries, including one man with a heart murmur which Dixie and Dr. Early help in treating. The paramedics attempt to assist an attempted suicide (by taking six aspirins) but are sent to a vacant lot instead; when they find the right location they end up in the middle of a domestic dispute. John and a security guard are injured in a fire and Roy has to rescue both of them. Written by

The freeway pileup is said to be on the southbound 405, between Century Blvd. and Western Ave. When Captain Stanley asks Engine 45 to sound their horn to assess distance, he estimates Engine 45 "must be south of the curve" and "about a half-mile" from Engine 51. While there is a curve on the 405 Freeway between Century and Western, the distance is too great for Captain Stanley to have heard Engine 45's horn. The Century Blvd. offramp is near LAX (exit 46), and the Western offramp is in Torrance (Exit 38A), approximately eight miles apart from each other. See more
