Working frantically in situations where seconds mark the difference between life and death, six-hundred and fifty paramedics and 1,700 emergency medical technicians patrol the city 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With graphic footage of real-life situations, EMERGENCY! goes behind the scenes with the nation's busiest street crew to see how lives are saved, and sometimes lost.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
