There, he learned of the fledgling paramedic program being tested in the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Upon learning the full details of the program and the nature of their dispatches, Cinader immediately concluded the adventures of such a team of special firefighters would be excellent material for a TV series.

    During the show's run, it was credited with actually saving lives. There were many news reports over the years of children and adults saving people using techniques demonstrated in the series. However in later seasons, the series posted a disclaimer in the credits noting that the medical techniques demonstrated should only be performed by people with proper formal training in them. To further illustrate the need for proper training, one story, "Gifted," had the main characters deal with a patient whose serious medical condition was aggravated by an injury accidentally inflicted by an amateur incorrectly applying a medical technique called a precordial thump and reprimanding him for the error.
