With the ever-increasing popularity of reality shows, most networks want to reinvent it. And a theme that has recently gained prominence in television is the life of a first responder.

With the success of dramas like ‘9-1-1‘, viewers have a strong appetite for stories based in this world. Watching real first responders spring into action as they answer these calls will be a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat journey for viewers each week.”

First Responders Live Plot: What is it about?
During any case of major emergencies, the first responders are highly important personnel as they carry a lot of responsibilities to avoid loss of lives and bring the situation under control as soon as possible. EMS technicians, policemen, firefighters, and other first responders are the subjects of the show. In every episode, we get to see how these people work during the night in a number of American cities.

There is a panel of experts along with Elliott who analyze the situation and explain to us the process of the entire operation.
One of the executive producers of the series, Dick Wolf, said, “I have always been fascinated by the brave work of first responders, who face life-and-death decisions on a daily basis. ‘First Responders Live’ will give viewers a front-row seat to paramedic, fire and police calls, and they will see the challenges of every type of emergency. It is truly the real-life version of ‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago PD’ and ‘Chicago Med.’”
