IN THE premiere episode, a man is lost over the channel in a runaway hot air balloon, two
skin divers are trapped in an underwater cave, and a buffalo prefers the Lighthouse Bar in
town to his home on the range, indicating it is rescue time again for the members of the island
rescue forces. Fire Chief Rick Wilson, Chief of Beaches George Baker and Police Chief Walt Robinson rush into action to keep the island safe from hordes of tourists who are arriving for their summer vacations.
Rick, undecided about whether he should go for a better job offer, turns to Walt for advice since the latter had been in a similar position previously.
So, Walt tells Rick he had refused the offer he got because his family was reluctant to leave the island.
But as far as Rick is concerned, his single status isn't going to be an obstacle so he has to decide whether he is prepared to leave the island or not.
Alvin, too, has to decide on his future while George seems to have better luck this time when he successfully resumes an old relationship.
