Nearly 30 years ago, Cops gave TV audiences a sneak peek at the daily lives of peace officers on the beat. A new series called Live Rescue seeks to replicate formula with first responders across the spectrum.

Hosted by veteran journalist Ashleigh Banfield, Live Rescue follows the daily lives of firefighters dousing roaring flames, paramedics bringing folks back from the brink of death, and EMTs rushing to save the day. Every episode will put these modern heroes across the US in the spotlight as they respond to daily emergency rescue calls.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Live Rescue online for free.
