Fisher-Price introduced the Rescue Heroes toy line in 1998. Rescue Heroes are large figures that were sold with a special equipment packs and/or weapon to fight evil villans. Rescue Heroes figures are so large that they require large accessories that are usually a bit expensive. This expense is probably the reason there are so few Rescue Heroes accessories. As of 1999, only one building has been introduced to the Rescue Heroes line, which is the Command Center. All other accessories are vehicles, such as a motorcycle, helicopter, and rescue vehicle.
While Rescue Heroes were produced years after 1999, we at This Old Toy have only the sets made up to 1999 listed on our web site. Most of the Rescue Heroes figures that were introduced in the first years were re-introduced in different colors or with crome and/or glow-in-the dark equipment packs and accessories.
You can click here to find a list of all known Rescue Heroes sets that were made in 1998 and 1999 in order by model number. We have listed all of the accessories sold in these sets into bite-size identification pages to make it easier for you to find exactly what you are looking for:

Rescue Heroes (TV series)
Rescue Heroes (commonly known as Rescue Heroes: Global Response Team) is a Canadian animated television series produced by Nelvana. Based on the Fisher-Pricetoy line of the same name, the TV series tracks the adventures of a team of emergency responders who rescue people from various disasters.
The series premiered in Canada on Teletoon on October 2, 1999 and ran for three seasons. On November 18, 2003, a film titled Rescue Heroes: The Movie was released. In the United States, the series aired on both CBS, as part of the CBS Kidshow from 1999 to 2000, and Kids' WB, from 2001 to 2003.
Rescue Heroes centers on a group of rescue personnel who aim to save lives around the world from both natural and man-made disasters.
The headquarters, also known as the Mountain Action Command Center, is where team leader Billy Blazes, along with team members Wendy Waters, Jake Justice, Jack Hammer, Ariel Flyer, and Rocky Canyon, reside. Calls for help come into the command center through Warren Waters, the director and chief dispatcher of the Rescue Heroes.
The TV series aims to show how to handle emergency situations, as well as how to deal with personal issues, such as disagreements. At the end of most episodes the Rescue Heroes would give safety tips and discuss how to handle the conflict presented in the episode. The episode would then usually conclude with the motto "Think like a Rescue Hero, think safe."
- Billy Blazes (Norm Spencer) - Billy, a firefighter hailing from Quebec, is the leader of the Rescue Heroes who helped choose the other members of the team. He has a younger brother named Bobby, as well as a father. Billy had an uneasy relationship with his father. This was because Bobby chose to become a firefighter like Billy, instead of being a construction worker like his father. It was revealed in the episode "Flashback to Danger" that Billy was chosen to be a Rescue Hero after saving a group of children trapped in a carnival ride that was set ablaze.
- Wendy Waters (Lenore Zann) - Wendy, a firefighter, is effectively the second-in-command. Her father, Warren, is a Rescue Hero who works at a space station. It was through a news report about a factory being set ablaze that lead to her being chosen to try out for the Rescue Heroes.
- Jake Justice (Martin Roach) - Jake, a police officer, was chosen to try out for the Rescue Heroes when he caught a wanted criminal after a televised car chase that made national headlines. It is revealed in the reboot that he has a relative named Sky Justice.
- Richmond "Rocky" Canyon (Joseph Motiki) - Rocky, a mountain climbing specialist, is the youngest member of the Rescue Heroes. When Billy had once considered quitting the Rescue Heroes it was ultimately Rocky, through an audition video, who convinced him to stay, cementing Billy's decision to hire Rocky. The episode "Twister" revealed that his hometown is in Oklahoma, and that his father had died.
- Ariel Flyer (Lisa Messinger in season one, Deborah Odell in seasons two and three) - Ariel, a bilingual flight and wildlife specialist, was once a stunt pilot who had a rival named Avery Ator. However, Avery's lack of concern for safety has led to Ariel rescuing him on two occasions.
- Jack Hammer (Rod Wilson) - Jack, a construction worker hailing from Texas, was originally a contractor hired to build the Rescue Heroes base of operations, but had saved a fellow construction worker in a crane accident. Because of this, he was given the opportunity to try out for the Rescue Heroes. Jack has a younger sister named Jill, who is a member of the Texas Fire Brigade.
- Aiden Assist - Paramedic.
- Al Pine (Edward Glen) - Arctic Rescue Specialist, with his St. Bernard, Windchill.
- Ben Choppin (Robert Bockstael) - Lumberjack.
- Bill Barker (Kent Sheridan) - Ground Patrol Specialist and K-9 Unit.
- Bob Buoy (Dorian Harewood) - Scuba Diver and Submarine Operator.
- Bob Sled (Andrew Sabiston) - Arctic Rescue Specialist and Snowmobile Operator.

On October 2, 1999, an animated television series based on the toy line debuted. The TV series, titled Rescue Heroes, ran for three seasons, concluding on December 18, 2002.
The TV series, which is about a group of rescue personnel that travel the world while saving lives from both natural and man-made disasters, strives to teach proper safety techniques and how to deal with various issues. At the end of most episodes the Rescue Heroes would give safety tips and discuss how to handle the conflict presented in the episode. The episode would then usually conclude with the motto "Think like a Rescue Hero, think safe."
Hiatus and return
In 2007, Fisher-Price stopped producing Rescue Heroes products and updating the Rescue Heroes website. However, from 2010-2013, Fisher-Price produced a new collection of figurines under the title "Hero World", a line shared with other licensed characters. Among the collection were preexisting characters such as Billy Blazes and Jake Justice.
In 2019 Fisher-Price relaunched the Rescue Heroes brand. This included figurines and various vehicles, such as a fire tracker and hover pack. Fisher-Price also released a reboot of the original TV series to YouTube.
Rescue Heroes has spawned numerous interactive formats of entertainment, including PC, SonyPlayStation, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Pixter, Radica Play TV, and Smart Cycle.

- Rescue Heroes: Meteor Madness (2001)

Western Animation / Rescue Heroes
Rescue Heroes began as a toy series by Fisher-Price. It was turned into a Merchandise-Driven children's show by the world-renowned Canadian animation studio Nelvana that was shown on Teletoon and CBSnote Later Kids' WB! after getting Un-Canceled that taught kids about safety and a couple of other issues starting back at 1999.
The Rescue Heroes Global Response Team is a team of emergency rescue specialists (firefighters, police, mountain climbers, divers, spelunkers, etc.) who are on call at a moment's notice to travel to the sight of major emergencies anywhere in the world and deal with them, usually employing a variety of high-tech vehicles and equipment. All this is directed by astronaut Roger Houston, who watches over the world from a space station. Conceptually very similar to the classic series Thunderbirds, but set in the Present Day. Contrast with Tomica Hero Rescue Force and Tomica Hero Rescue Fire.
Oh, and absolutely every recurring character has a Meaningful,Punny Name, whether he/she is based on a toy or not.
In 2019, a Flash-animated reboot series was released on the Fisher-Price YouTube channel, with an all-new toyline accompanying it. Nelvana also has every episode of the original show available online through Treehouse Direct.
This animated series provides examples of:
- 10-Minute Retirement: In "When It Rains, It Pours", Ariel, after rescuing a hiker during a forest fire, accept a job to become a spokesperson for the National Safety Council in order to teach kids about safety. After a while, she starts to miss being a Rescue Hero. Ultimately, she rejoins the team and decide to create a website to teach kids about safety. Out of all the other Rescue Heroes, Rocky was the one who was not happy about Ariel leaving.
- Action Girl: All the female members of the Rescue Heroes.
- Adapted Out: Wendy Waters, Ariel Flyer, Jake Justice, and others from the original show are absent in the reboot, and are replaced with new characters.
- Adult Fear:
- All of the numerous ways kids are put at risk and/or injured. One particularly scary one involves three kids going off-trail on their bikes; one of them gets injured and snake bit and the only one who has any idea where they went is her little brother.
- "Lava Alarm" features a family with five kids who all go off for the day right before the local volcano erupts. The two oldest get stuck on the ocean in their raft, the twins get trapped in a pit that's rapidly dissolving and the youngest, Katie's presence is only mentioned to the Rescue Heroes when they think they've completed their mission.
- An Aesop: Besides the obvious safety tips, most episodes have some kind of lesson about interpersonal relationships and teamwork.
- Alliterative Family: Jack and Jill Hammer.
- Alliterative Name: Billy Blazes, Wendy and Warren Waters, Gil Gripper, Jake Justice, Bill Barker, Bob Buoy, Matt Medic, Pat Pending, Rip Rockefeller, Sam Sparks and Sergeant Siren.
- All Just a Dream: In "Quake Me When Its Over", Wendy gets knocked out and dreams about being a firefighter during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
- Alternate Timeline: "Quake Me When it's Over" is an episode that centers on Wendy's dream of being in 1906 during the Great Earthquake, except she is unable to use any of the modern conveniences they have in the regular timeline.
- Amplified Animal Aptitude: All of the Rescue Creatures; they appear to understand commands given by any human, not just their handlers and these commands can be full sentences. They're also able to determine what is needed in any given situation and react when insulted. This includes animals such as Claude the mountain lion and Radar the bat, creatures that are not normally known for being highly trainable.
- And Knowing Is Half the Battle: "Think like a Rescue Hero. Think safe." It doubles as a Catchphrase.
- Anvil on Head: Played for Drama in The Movie. Billy manages to narrowly save a citizen from getting killed by a falling anvil. Lampshaded when he says "I thought that only happened in cartoons."
- Art Evolution: Season 1 is different design wise from Seasons 2 and 3. This is due to switching from Wang Film Productions (credited as Hong Gaung) to AKOM.
- Ascended Fanboy: Rocky in "Rock Star on the Rocks". Not only does he get to save his favorite singer, he gets a backstage pass to her concert and a kiss on the cheek.
- Awesome Aussie: Sandy Beach. Besides his rescue work, he once was attacked by a shark and came out with no injuries save a broken surfboard.
- Big Brother Instinct:
- All the Rescue Heroes towards the kids they rescue, but Rocky gets bonus points for mentoring the current members of his old high school basketball team and training the towel/water boy in basic emergency response, the latter of which ends up saving the entire team after their bus crashes on a bridge in mid-winter.
- Billy and Jack get this towards their biological younger siblings and Jake was part of a Big Brothers Big Sisters program and remained close to the boys he mentored, even offering to let them stay in Headquarters when their house burns down in "Four Alarm Fire And Brimstone"
- Big Damn Heroes: The Rescue Heroes since they're involved in a lot of rescue missions.
- Big Damn Movie: The regular show is already your typical action-packed cartoon (though with significantly less violence than your traditional example), but The Movie ups the ante and the stakes quite considerably with a Darker and Edgier plot full of emotional conflict among the heroes, the potential death of the leader, and The End of the World as We Know It.
- Big Eater: Rocky is one.
- Casual Danger Dialogue: Jack spouts it a lot, driving the more serious Jake crazy. Unusually for this trope, Jake eventually learns that Jack uses the humor to defuse tense situations, a handy tool for Emergency Services who rescue people who might begin panicking and put themselves and others in more danger.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: When a contestant cheats at the race in "Race to the Finish", his "shortcut" across the ice ends up stranding him and his dog and he doesn't even get to finish the race.
- Chekhov's Skill: Billy's father in "Storm of the Century" is a construction worker, and apparently an umpteenth generation one at that, none too pleased that his sons went down the firefighting route instead. However, once the hyperjet is badly damaged, his occupation comes in handy when Billy requests a wing to be repaired.
- Christmas Episode: "All Alone for the Holidays."
- Comically Missing the Point: From "Ultimate Ride":
Jack: Hey buddy, where were you?
Jake: Saw a movie.
Billy: (runs over to the computer to check out an alert) Earthquake in Tokyo!
Jake: No, I saw that last week.
- Cool Big Sis: Ariel and Wendy to Rocky; they also are frequently this to the kids they're rescuing.
- Cool Bike: Jake Justice's.
- Cool Pet: Not pets exactly but the Rescue Creatures are very cool.
- Darker and Edgier:
- The Movie is notably a lot darker than most episodes of the show. Most noteworthy is the fact that it deals with the idea of The End of the World as We Know It, where a series of lightning storms have the potential to collide and lead to the Earth's destruction. Even if you gloss over that though, it also deals with Billy's potentially fatal poisoning and Rocky not only being grounded for his failures, but learning he's at fault for Billy's poisoning. While the show always dealt with deadly situations, it never did it on a level this up close prior.
- The Global Response Team-era episodes also tend to fall into this category more than the first season.
- A Day in the Limelight: Roger in "Houston, We Have a Problem".
- Demoted to Extra: Roger after Season 1.
- Disney Death: Billy in The Movie, when he contracts a fatal poison and is weakened to the point of being unable to partake in any further rescues. However, the team is ultimately able to heal him back to strength by using the plant he contracted the poison from to make an antidote.
- Early Installment Weirdness: The "Lava Alarm" pilot is actually quite faithful to what the eventual show would be, but one particular point of notice is the fact that it doesn't end on the No Fourth Wall ending or "Think like a Rescue Hero, think safe."
- Embarrassing First Name: Rocky's real name is Richmond as revealed in "Cave In".
- Embarrassing Middle Name: Jack's is Percy as revealed in "Sibling Blowout".
- Emergency Services: The whole show is built around them.
- The End of the World as We Know It: The Movie provides a rare non-villainous example, where the team is horrified to discover a series of lightning storms could lead to this.
- Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: In an episode involving a series of tornadoes striking near a beach, a boat is struck, knocking its passengers into the water. Gil rescues them and then asks "Were six of you in one boat?" The girl he's speaking to is still a bit groggy as she answers "Actually there were...seven. Angus! Angus isn't here!" Gil ends up having to dive after the now-drowning Angus, who had been the only person on-board the boat without a life vest.
- Family Theme Naming: Jack Hammer and his sister Jill's names come from the old nursery rhyme about how "Jack and Jill went up a hill".
- Foreshadowing: In "Storm of the Century", Wendy mentions they're traveling to Billy's hometown, which Billy immediately snaps at her by saying "Wendy, we never let our emotions get in the way of our work!" Guess what happens later in the episode?
- Gag Lips: One that isn'tPlayed for Laughs. In Season 1, Rocky and Jake have noticeably bigger lips than the other characters, and both are black. Thankfully, they both have normal lips in Seasons 2 and 3.
- Good Parents: Both the parents of the Rescue Heroes that we're shown and the Rescue Heroes who are shown to be parents themselves. We also see this in civilians such as the mother in "When It Rains, It Pours" who got trapped in her house, forced her kids to evacuate to the roof and immediately asks Jake if her kids are all right when he comes in to rescue her.
- Heroic BSoD:
- Billy has one of these in "Storm of the Century"; while it's fairly downplayed compared to most other examples, it's probably the episode that contains the biggest screw-up of any hero. First off, he abandons higher priority work to try taking after his father who is in a position that Billy knows good and well he won't be able to handle alone, and after Billy already snapped at Wendy earlier on for bringing this subject up. He also ends up taking the Hyper Jet, which has up to this point been established as a prime tool for the heroes that they couldn't get along very far without, and he uses it to help out a single person. As if that weren't enough, the wind storm ends up picking up enough that the ship's electrical system gets badly damaged, completely cutting him off from all radio communication and losing all signal, and in the process gets the both of them lost. Top this off with him trapped in the jet with only his father, already upset enough at him for not taking the path he was expecting Billy to take, and getting badly injured from the impact of the jet's landing, and you can just see the look of utter defeat and despair on his face. Fortunately, he gets better once him and his father are able to set aside their past tensions.
- Rocky also has one in The Movie, when he learns he's responsible for causing Billy to contract a fatal poison.
- Jake realizes he's being one in "Four Alarm Fire and Brimstone" when he begins the process of holding a grudge against his "little brother" Nick for coming along on a rescue and putting himself and his little brother in danger when he had tried to get Nick to forgive the neighborhood boy who accidentally burned down Nick's house with fireworks earlier in the episode. Jake's quick to acknowledge this and apologize once he figures it out.
- Also occurs with Rocky in "Twister". In the cold opening, he is the most vocal about scolding a professor who puts his material possessions above his own safety, but is later shown to not be above doing a similar thing when he could potentially lose a car he holds sentimental value for due to it holding memories of his deceased father. Jake even calls him out with a Meaningful Echo when he tells Rocky "you don't go back into a burning building" as Rocky himself said earlier on.
- I Am Not My Father:
- "Storm of the Century" reveals Billy's father was a construction worker along with all of his ancestors, and expected Billy to follow the same path. When Billy and his brother chose to be firefighters instead, he became frustrated and slowly lost contact with the two over the years. It becomes a major point of contention when they meet up again after years of silence between each other.
- Gentle case with Wendy and Warren Waters in "Meteor". When Warren signs Wendy up for space training, she eventually has to tell him that his world is up in the Station but hers is "down there (Earth)".
- Idiot Ball: Any time someone deliberately ignores safety guidelines:
- The snowboarder in "Peril on the Peaks" deserves special mention. He refuses to dump any of his footage that he obtained while on the mountain, and contests Rocky's command to drop his backpack. This was after he already put two other people at risk due to his own ignorance while climbing the mountain earlier. After this gets both of them into an even worse spot, once they're finally rescued, the snowboarder then proceeds to snowboard off the slope due to his own greed to finish his documentary...And then he screams joyfully down it, which starts an avalanche that almost kills him again. This is almost entirely intentional to teach An Aesop of why doing your own thing puts yourself and everyone else at risk instead of obeying the plan, but so much of it relies on him being nearly Too Dumb to Live.
- Carter in "The Chilling Championship." Him and the rest of his basketball team are on a bus that is dangling off a bridge. They are told to stay put until the rescue team arrives, but Carter decides to try and back the bus up himself, thinking that it will make him a hero, but it just makes things worse. Then when the team is all out of the bus, Carter goes right back inside to grab the trophy just as the bus plunges into the river.
- "Twister" starts off with the Rescue Heroes pulling some scientists out of a burning building, and one of them actually runs back into the building to grab his research. Even after they save him, all he cares about is his research going up in flames, until Rocky tells him that what he did was crazy. Then when the scientist sees how worried his wife and son were, he realizes that Rocky was right and he thanks the Rescue Heroes for saving him.
- Imagine Spotting: When Jack tells the story of how he became a Rescue Hero in "Flashback to Danger", his Imagine Spot opens with him walking while carrying a huge stack of metal beams at a construction site, to which Rocky asks "How many beams were you carrying!?" Jack admits he was stretching the truth and the Imagine Spot then restarts with him carrying a lunchbox.
- It's All My Fault: Rocky is hit with this in the movie when it's revealed that his behavior in an earlier rescue resulted in Billy contracting a potentially fatal poisoning.
- Jerkass: Avery Ator is this towards Ariel in "Up, Up and Uh Oh" due to their rivalry.
- Like Father, Like Son: In "Meteor", after Wendy reveals she wants to go back to Earth and has left, Roger asks Warren if he's okay with it. Warren replies "You know Wendy; she's stubborn, bull-headed and..." Roger interrupts "A chip off the old block, Sir?" Warren pauses before chuckling and admitting "I guess so."
- Mama Bear: You can bet that if a woman has or knows of a child in danger, she'll be this. This includes a random civilian in "When It Rains, It Pours" who deliberately tells her rescuers that they can't leave because she and her boyfriend saw some Boy Scouts on a hike that have not returned; she's quite insistent the Rescue Heroes go after them.
- Meaningful Name: Every single character's name has to do with their job.
- The Movie: All in CG. Also to provide a very long commercial to promote their new toy.
- Multi-Part Episode: "Storm of the Century" is a two-part episode; since it was in the first season which entirely consisted of full thirty minute episodes, this means it's the only episode that totals to an hour. The Global Response Team era (the second and third seasons) used the Two Shorts format (two 15-minute episodes per half hour) and had some double-length episodes itself, such as "Heroes" and "Flashback to Danger".
- My God, What Have I Done?: Rocky in The Movie, when he finds out he was the one at fault for Billy's possible impending death.
- No Antagonist: As a general rule, there are no true villains on the show. The heroes combat accidents and natural disasters. While an accident may be someone's fault, it is none-the-less an accident and not due to anyone's deliberate malice. However, "A Whale of an Adventure" is a notable exception: there, the crisis is made much worse by illegal whalers who knowingly ignore a warning about a mined area of the sea, and deliberately jam signals to avoid detection.
- "Not So Different" Remark: Rocky realizes that he and the hot-dogging snowboarder the team is trying to rescue in "Peril on the Peaks" are more similar than he thought; their deviation from the plan puts them and others at risk. Rocky learns his lesson; the snowboarder not so much.
- Papa Wolf: Mild case with Warren Waters who insists his daughter Wendy stay with him at the Space Station while she recovers from the injuries she suffered during a mountain rescue. Strong case with any father who has a child in danger or go missing during a disaster.
- The Pollyanna: Gordy in "Race to the Finish". He's always chipper and friendly and is enthusiastic about just finishing the race because that means he raised lots of money for an orphanage; for this reason, he's a favorite of the Rescue Heroes supervising the race, despite having to rescue him every year.
- The Power of Trust: What helps Wendy in overcoming her fear of water in "Tidal Wave"; she knows she can trust Gil to watch her back so she is able to do her job.
- Promoted to Opening Titles: Jack starting in Season 2.
- Punny Name: Rocky Canyon, Ariel Flyer, Jack Hammer, and many more. This even can apply to non-Rescue Heroes such as Avery Ator, Ariel's main rival in aviation.
- Ripped from the Headlines: Some of the series' disasters were based on real-world events:
- "Arctic Spill" is loosely based on the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
- The submarine portion of "Trapped Beneath the Sea" shares similarities with the sinking of the Kursk nuclear submarine.
- "High Anxiety", as aforementioned, shares a number of similarities with 9/11.
- "Mayhem in the Mist" is based on the 1991 M4 motorway crash, where dense fog led to a 51-car pileup.
- As in "Blackout", commercial planes have been forced to land on roadways when they could not reach an airport. One such incident was Southern Airways Flight 242 in 1977, which tried to land on a highway in Georgia before crashing into a gas station.
- Though "In the Driver's Seat" shows it as fire for dramatic effect, gasoline entered the sewer line in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico in 1992, eventually leading to a series of explosions.
- "Tunnel Vision" is based on a number of tunnel fires caused by cargo trucks, including the Channel Tunnel in 1996 and Mont Blanc in 1999.
- Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale: "Not On This Planet" suffers from this big time. The shuttle hits a debris field seconds after launch, when using its rocket boosters to avoid a large asteroid they end up sending it right to Earth, and seconds after that they somehow encounter a black hole, which doesn't look remotely black, or even like a hole. A black hole that close to Earth would've obliterated our solar system long before they bumped into it, or would've had to be on the other side of the galaxy to escape detection until the last minute. Turns out this is deliberate, as the whole scenario was an elaborate set up using holograms and other tricks to simulate a space disaster for the kids on the tour to overcome.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: Jack Hammer has a fear of spiders, and when Matt Medic dangles a toy spider on his shoulder, Jack takes off running complete with high pitch screaming.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
- Zigzagged in "Flashback to Danger" when Rocky almost quits the Rescue Heroes due to a mistake he makes during a rescue. Billy convinces Rocky to stay after telling him the story about the only other Rescue Heroes to quit. Turns out that the Rescue Hero who quit was Billy himself. He ultimately decided to stay with the team after watching an audition tape Rocky had sent in two years prior to events of the episode.
- Show up in civilians who decide that they don't want any part of their companions' boneheaded plans.
- Shout-Out: A few of the episode titles are this. "When it Rains, it Pours" is a reference to Morton Salt's slogan and "Going With the Wind" is a pun on Gone with the Wind.
- The Teaser: Nearly every episode begins with a minor rescue before the main plot kicks in. Sometimes these are completely unrelated to the bulk of the episode, but occasionally they will set up something major with the episode's theme. For example, "Twister" starts off with a professor who goes back into a burning building to retrieve his research, foreshadowing the conflict with Rocky having to decide between his life and a material possession.
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: In "A Bridge Too Far", Rocky calls in Bob Buoy (normally an underwater rescue specialist) for a bridge rescue and puts Ariel on the ground instead of in her chopper, to his teammates' puzzlement. As it turns out, Rocky was several steps ahead of everyone: Ariel's Spanish skills make her more useful in communicating with the Spanish-speaking locals then in the air, and Bob ends up being vital in rescuing passengers who got trapped in a train car that falls from the bridge into the river (and two passengers who get swept away by said river.)
- Tomboy: Ariel is this thanks to her being an aviator.
- Tragic Keepsake: A hot rod Rocky and his father refurbished serves this role in "Twister". It's unfortunately destroyed by the end.
- Traveling at the Speed of Plot: The location of the accident in each episode seems to never be a detriment to how quickly the team arrives, despite how widely they can vary from episode to episode. This even applies to the space station.
- True Companions: The Rescue Heroes team. This is highlighted in "Lava Alarm" where Billy is gently scolded for putting himself at risk to save a parrot.
- Two Shorts: The second and third seasons followed this format; the first season averts it.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Revealed to be why Rocky's rival in "Twister" is so antagonistic towards him; he had this kind of relationship with his own dad and envied the wonderful relationship Rocky and Mr. Canyon had.
- Where the Hell Is Springfield?: While the locations of each disaster are always written in text and sometimes even directly stated, the exact location of the command center is never revealed or hinted at.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
- Wendy is uncomfortable with water rescues due to a near drowning incident in her past. In "Tidal Wave", she ends up putting her fears aside to do her job, partly due to how much she trusts her partner for the job, Gil Gripper.
- Several rescues feature civilians who are afraid of one thing or another, often something that complicates the rescue such as an acrophobe who needs to be airlifted or an aquaphobe during a water rescue. The Rescue Heroes typically are able to convince the civilians in question to put aside their fears long enough to be rescued and have occasionally been able to help them get cured entirely.
