Johnny becomes increasingly jealous of Tom Wheeler, a paramedic with Squad 110 who has several times gotten himself in the newspapers. The paramedics rescue the captain of a boat struck unconscious during a mishap and dangling upside down from a spar. Brackett's sandpaper personality gets him - and maybe the hospital - into a lot of trouble with a powerful and rich man named Dumont. Returning from a false alarm, the paramedics discover a horse trapped in a new drainage ditch and help its owner free it. Finally, the entire station works for hours to rescue Elena Diaz, a child who has fallen into a hole at a construction site - and Wheeler winds up getting the press! But this time, Johnny doesn't care. He's just happy he got the child out alive.
