Hold on for a wild, breathless ride with brave volunteer firefighters. A story of chaos, tragedy, fear, courage and sacrifice. Bare witness to the story of the unlikely hero. All real, all volunteer.
The series is footage taken from real emergency responses, and interviews of the volunteers involved. Through a combination of amazing response footage shot in HD (and incredible 1st person perspectives using helmet cameras), reality type day-to-day station life, and compelling interviews, we want to educate, entertain and captivate the viewing audience by telling this amazing story.
It takes dedication, commitment, perseverance and balls to become a volunteer firefighter. We are required to achieve certification through training programs that are intense, physically demanding and take up a huge part of our lives. We spend hundreds of hours preparing, training and drilling to assure that we are ready when we are needed, and are passionate about the opportunity to stare danger in the face and kick its ass. VTS highlights the demand, stress and sacrifice this puts on the volunteers and their families. VTS introduces you to the family members, and what they think of firefighting, and the strains it can put upon the family unit. The responses are not always straight forward and sometime shocking.
Volunteers The Series was created by Dropping Plates Studio, a handful of dedicated volunteer firefighters/ems personnel, committed to telling the story of our sacrifice, passion and commitment to protect our home communities. We sacrifice a huge portion of our time away from family to respond to the communities we protect. Through the series we want to increase public awareness, increase support and donations, and show the world how committed we are to being there for them in there darkest hours. The volunteers are there for the community, standing ready to respond, for no pay, and most of the time, not even a thank you. VTS will be the "thank you" that 2+ million volunteer firefighters and EMS personelle in the USA deserve.
All Real, All Volunteer!
