In each episode, the rescue heroes receive an emergency call from around the world. In the end, all citizens are safe and rescued. In episodes where it is a character's fault for the emergency, the rescue heroes make the consequences clear to the audience. (i.e. don't play with fire, don't bike on expert trails, wear a life jacket, obey rules of adults). The ending segment involves the rescue heroes explaining to the audience, (depending on the topic of the episode) how to help prevent the episode's problem from happening in real life. If the show's episode topic was unpreventable, the rescue heroes explain what children should do in that situation. After each episode, the rescue heroes then say, "Think like a rescue hero, think safe."
