Joe Rorchek is a 30 year veteran of the LA Fire Department. His sons follow in his footsteps, as does 13-year-old adopted Danny who wants to be a fireman. Heavy on teaching us all about fire safety.Written by

Jack Lord was offered the role of Batallion Fire Chief Joe Rorcheck, but turned it down, even though the producers said they could film it in Hawaii so he would not have to live in LA for part of the year to film it. See more »
I always loved Emergency as a kid and this show reminded me of it so much. Lorne Greene was great as the wish fire chief and everyone else on the show was great as well. I believe viewers want realism and this show certainly tried to give it to them, they even showed films of actual famous fires. It was cancelled way too soon. What I also liked about it was the way they would have public service messages at the end of every episode and would say be safe its a nicer world with you in it.
