For the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way. The pressure to perform on such a high level has a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes putting team members from the Truck and the specially-trained Rescue Squad at odds with each other. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), in charge of the Truck, butts heads with the brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) of the Rescue Squad.
The firehouse also includes: Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker); paramedics Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Leslie Shay (Lauren German); Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett), an academy graduate who is the latest generation in a family of firefighters; and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg), a seasoned veteran who must uproot his family to move in with his in-laws.
