Firefighter/engineer Chris Garcia's family drops by for Easter Sunday with their Day. The guys are in the kitchen cooking up lunch when a call comes. They are down the pole and onto the rig and they arrive on scene to a shooting. The police had been in a pursuit of some gangsters in a black SUV. They found them, gave them a spin, and had to shoot. The guy they shoot is suspected to be a killer. Next up, a vehicle accident. Night falls and a call comes in for a commercial structure fire; Eng. 3's "A" Shift is 1st in on a Antique Store owned by a hoarder.

The 2nd half of this 48 with Eng. 3's "A" Shift. Firefighter Silva is on a strict diet and a full regiment of exercises; he takes advantage of whatever time he has in between the large volume of calls at Station 3. A call comes in for an additional engine needed at a fire out in the west side of town. There's no hydrants out here. They are called off and head back to the station. On the way, they drive through one of Fresno's many homeless camps. They have overtaken the Downtown Fresno Area and it has become a very dangerous place full of drugs, prostitution and people that prey on others. A call comes in and they are out the door...and so much more.

This morning, Chief Kelleher and the crew clean the rigs, the get thrashed in the winter; a call comes in, it's supporting a Hazmat Incident at NASA; it's by invitation only, and even then, you can't just walk in.
