Inspired by the real-life Emergency Task Force of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Flashpoint chronicles the efforts of the Strategic Response Unit (SRU), an elite and highly skilled group of cops charged with rescuing hostages, defusing bombs and breaking up gangs. The series title refers to the psychological aspect of the job, which is also the focus of the show: getting inside a suspect's head and discovering the emotional "flashpoint" that triggered the crisis in the first place, with the hope of diffusing the situation safely and using force only as a last resort.

The team consists of Sgt. Gregory Parker (Enrico Colantoni), the field leader of the team. Also in the team are Ed Lane (Hugh Dillon), Julianna "Jules" Callaghan (Amy Jo Johnson), Sam Braddock (David Paetkau). Then there are Lou "Lewis" Young (Mark Taylor), Mike 'Spike' Scarlatti (Sergio Di Zio), Kevin 'Wordy' Wordsworth (Michael Cram). Season 4 episode 6 introduces Rafik 'Raf' Rousseau (Cle Bennett) as the latest new team member.

These are the men and women in the Strategic Response Unit who make Toronto safe.
