The paramedics assist the victims of a car accident (including Dixie, who is injured at the scene) and rescue workers from a tunnel cave-in.
Note: This was a 2-hour episode, which was re-aired in a two-part frame format: returning from a run, Roy and John recall how they became paramedics.Where it allll began!!
