The CFD vehicle which Sean McCaffrey (Joe Anderson) drives is numbered "4-2-2", which would be the vehicle number & radio call sign of the Deputy Director of Fire Operations for the Office of Emergency Management & Communications. As an OFI Investigator, his vehicle/call sign should be 4-6-7, 4-6-8, or 4-6-9. See more »

User Reviews

Ignore all the negative reviews...it's decent enough
18 May 2019 | by kimbpaulSee all my reviews

Maybe because I'm not a professional firefighter or maybe because when I watch dramas like this, I'm willing to suspend my expectations of 100% accuracy in exchange for entertainment, I enjoyed this movie. I enjoyed Donald Sutherland's portrayal of total creepiness. He nailed creepy, deranged old man. There were a few extraneous characters, like the girlfriend, but she was needed for one scene in particular (no spoilers from me!) Sean is a flawed person. It's his motivation. A few loose ends, like the connection between the Tuckers & the bad guys, but no big deal. I didn't care enough to get all wound up about it. I probably won't watch it again, but it was okay for a one-off
