This long-running reality/dramatic series focused primarily on two medical technicians (who later were promoted as captains), Firefighter Johnny Gage, a young, professional partner of DeSoto's, who was a former student at a paramedic program, who is also a ladies' man who dated all the nurses (except Dixie, obviously). Gage can also be accidental prone at times, leading him to injuries, he sustained, and Firefighter Roy DeSoto, another paramedic and founding partner, who's a devoted family man, who in turn, would often give specific orders to Johnny about the victims he's too involved with. Together, the two worked at Station 51, who saved the many lives of people who have been hurt, who were also assisted by the staff at Rampart General Hospital, Dr. Kelly Brackett, a handsome, no-nonsense, but hotheaded doctor and senior physician, who was romantically involved with Dixie, until they w
ere only best friends. While taking two separate classes at The Los Angeles County Fire Department, Brackett was opposed by the idea, but later changed his mind, Dixie McCall, a sexy, beautiful, yet dedicated head nurse (later nurse supervisor) who served as an Army unit during the Korean War, who was involved early on in the paramedic program, who argued constantly from her skills of paramedics to the dismissive of the head doctor. She's also responsible for looking after patients the paramedics, Gage and DeSoto, both brought to the hospital, all the while delivering cases to each ER doctor, Dr. Joe Early, a neurosurgeon and assistant of Dr. Brackett's & Nurse McCall's, who's calm and has the more tactful experience, who's also dedicated to children, and Dr. Mike Norton, a young black intern, who's calm like Dr. Early, but can be inadvertent to think or to overreact, on occasion. Unlike McCall, Norton spent his time in the U.S. Navy.
