TV show description:
This TV series provides a look into the lives of the everyday heroes who are committed to one of America’s noblest professions. For the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way and whose actions make the difference between life and death.

The pressure to perform on such a high level has a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes putting team members from the Truck and the specially trained Rescue Squad at odds with each other. Despite any differences, this is an extended family, and when it’s “go time,” everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other. When a tragedy claims one of their own, there’s plenty of guilt and blame to go around.

Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) is a strong, intuitive lieutenant who is in charge of the Truck. He’s still coming to grips with the loss of one of his men and, unbeknownst to his colleagues, is in the midst of a separation from Hallie (Teri Reeves), a hospital resident.

Matthew butts heads with brash Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) of the Rescue Squad. Each blames the other for their fallen team member.

Others in the firehouse include Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), a fireman’s fireman who is confronted by important personal decisions; paramedics Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Leslie Shay (Lauren German), who share a close bond and team together to face some of the most harrowing situations imaginable; Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett), an academy graduate who is the latest generation in a family of firefighters; and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg), a seasoned veteran who loses his home to foreclosure and now must uproot his family to move in with his in-laws.

Are these the same NBC clowns that wanted Star Trek cancelled?

I would like for the TV series Chicago Fire continue. I am a Firefighter and even though some of the things they do are not right. I totally enjoy the show and the actors and actresses. What people don’t understand is that we see people on their worst days and you have to have compassion and understanding. Yes, this job is dangerous, but I enjoy doing what I do.

Please give this show a chance this is one of my favorite shows of all time NBC cancelled Jack Webb’s Emergency! ,Adam-12. Dragnet .Please give this show a chance ,What you have a Emmy winning show! the shows I mentioned earlier were nominated for awards, NBC has tendencies to move shows around from time to time!
Thanks to Emergency ! I was a Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician for 25 years ! Chicago Fire is this generation’s Emergency! for new blood in Fire and EMS careers!!!

NBC cancelled Emergency! in 1977 and you think that means the might cancel Chicago Fire in 2014? You do realize that the people at NBC when Emergency, Adam-12 and Dragnet were cancelled are no longer running the network, right?

Actually, NBC did not cancel Emergency! It still had strong ratings and could have gone on. Kevin Tighe and Randy Mantooth grew tired of their roles and opted out of their contracts for a 7th season. That’s why they did the six 2 hour movies at the end.

My family and I watch this program and would hate to have it canceled. Great show. At least a program that has some substance to it.


Newman December 3, 2014 at 11:12 am

Sharon December 2, 2014 at 11:38 pm

No, ChIcago Fire should not be cancelled,

JLC December 2, 2014 at 11:29 pm

This the best show on TV Please don’t cancel. They portray real live situations and the respect I have the firemen & women & their EMT ‘s. Please do not cancel.

I watch very little TV because I find comedy show are not very funny and there is way too much violence in most show.
Chicago Fire does have some violence, but what little it has, works on the premise that fire-fighters are going to see some. It’s not like the murder and mayhem shows that permeate TV now. The story lines are very believable.
This is one TV program that I have watched from the very beginning, and would not like to see it cancelled.


scott miller December 1, 2014 at 3:38 pm

Jackie November 25, 2014 at 5:52 pm

Great Show, love to see it continue.

Chicago Fire is the only show I watch. I love the message it presents to us and the dedication/compassion that firefighters have for others.

In January 2013, I experienced a serious fall, that hospitalized me for five weeks and more. I requested that I view Chicago Fire, while in the Emergency Room. The physicians granted me my request and they told me that show perked me up, that night. During the entire time of hospitalization, I was able to watch the show and the night shift nurses, often, viewed it with me….(See, I brought in a new audience..)…I have been a faithful, loyal viewer since the onset….even when I am ill – when I am a guest at another individual’s home (and convinced them to become a viewer, also). This program provides humor, compassion, dedication and illustrates the support and kindness for each other and mankind….No guns/no violence. This is a show that can be presented to junior high/high school groups. I, truly, believe that your show on Tuesday, November 18th was one of the best ever seen. But what did happen to Shay? Thank you for listening. Sally
