Dr. Brackett rides along with Copter 10, where he assists, along with the paramedics, in the rescue of a boy and his father from their overturned camper. Dixie encourages Roy to take the boy in as a foster parent, since the boy's mother is out of state, and the boy causes trouble both at home and at the station. When another young boy is brought into the ER and is diagnosed with spinal meningitis, Dr. Early talks to the mother, in case surgery is needed. The firefighter rescue a man from a structure fire, but not before he sustains severe burns on both legs.
