Our 1st-responders are our community’s unsung heroes. They fearlessly jump into situations that most would run from, putting their lives on the line for us. What few realize is the intense and regular training that each and every member must go through on an ongoing basis. This show pulls the curtain back and takes us into the training that these men and women endure which many times is just as grueling and dangerous as the real situations present.

The A-Side gets into the tactics and science behind the training that our 1st-responders push through on a regular basis and explores what actually happens in the situations they encounter. We follow teams on trainings covering an extremely wide range of exercises and dig into the details on each episode. Episodes will range from fire combat in houses, cars, to forests, from open water rescue to collapsed structure. There is an endless number of topics our 1st-responders must know about.
