John, Roy & Chet are returning from a "boring" fishing trip in a rural area when they come across a traffic accident, one man is dead, a mother and son are injured; and they have to find a local doctor to assist them. The firemen help rescue the victims of a rollover accident off a cliff; after the victims are medivac'd to Rampart. Dixie gets the assistant nurse to take on the patient's case, suffering from heart trouble, with Dr. Early, from Squad 45. John is bitten by a rattlesnake and is rushed to Rampart atop Engine 51.
