User Reviews

a great show in the tradition of Emergency
30 June 2002 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

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.
