The Plot: 9-1-1 is a new series that will begin with the fateful question, “9-1-1, what’s your emergency?” The procedural drama explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.
