TV show description:
On this docu-series, viewers “ride along” with the proud men and women of the Boston Emergency Services. They’re one of America’s most seasoned team of first responders and the first step in the chain of trauma care.
This is the same group that answered the desperate calls of runners and spectators when the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon in 2013. Treating the injured and ferrying the wounded to hospitals, the Boston EMS earned the gratitude of a shell-shocked and grief-stricken city with their cool-headed professionalism.
In this series, viewers meet some of the heroes of that terrible day as they answer new calls and respond to a daily dose of trauma and mayhem.
A patient gains a new perspective on life after being shot in the thigh, telling paramedics and EMT’s that he’ll turn his life around to care for his nine-month-old child if he survives.Across town, paramedic Randy Souza shows tough love to a sick patient refusing life-saving medical treatment, persuading him to accept care for the sake of his young children.
Paying close attention to anything that has the potential to be a mass causality incident, Deputy Supt. Ed Hassan races to a school where carbon monoxide alarms are ringing and students report feeling dizzy. (Courtesy ABC.)
First aired: August 27, 2016.
