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.

    There have been too few shows that depict what firefighters and paramedics really do. I
    have watched all of them going back to the 1960’s. This show by far comes the closest to
    depicting what actually happens during some incidents. For visual purposes the fire scenes are devoid of smoke or we could not see the actors, however the portrayals are very good. I would think it would be another long dry spell if this series were cancelled before another fireman show came along that equaled this one.

    There are so many shows on tv that have no meaning behind them, then you have Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD that make you feel the compassion and heart of what it must be like for the true heroes that fight and protect us all. We all get to live through the show and I can honestly say that I’m not speaking for just myself when I say ” DON’T CANCEL THE BEST THING ON TV–CHICAGO FIRE”

    Please do not cancel either Chicago Fire or Chicago PD. These two shows do a real good job of showing what our Firemen and Policemen go through every day. It is a show my husband and I both enjoy watching together. These days it is hard to find good shows that you look forward to seeing each week.

    Please do not cancel Chicago Fire and Chicago PD. There are very few TV shows my husband & I look forward to watching and these are two of the best.
