The Battalion-The Series, has been in development since 2003. Filmed in the dynamic and scenic city of San Francisco, California, the series follows the men and women of the San Francisco Fire Department as they face danger on a daily basis. Mr. Furtado and his crew have been granted extraordinary behind the scenes access to these brave modern-day heroes and have captured their thoughts and feelings on film. Each weekly episode offers us a glimpse into what motivates these unique individuals whose job is to rescue and save the lives of total strangers.
Split into two series, "Twenty-Four Hours with the San Francisco Fire Department" explores the thoughts and activities of the men and woman firefighters of San Francisco. On alternate weeks, "Women On The Watch" focuses more closely on women and their expanding roles in the department.
In San Francisco, the firemen and women are the first responders not only to fires, but for all medical calls as well. Often they are called upon during homeland security emergencies and are allowed into places the police department is not. From auto accidents, to shutting off a fire alarm during a black-out, to just holding a victims hand, you are along for the ride.
The Battalion-The Series is not just about fighting fires. It is about firefighters helping to save the lives of others during crisis situations. It is about the bond that exists between these men and women. It is about trust, teamwork, and watching each otherâ€™s back as they face new danger each time they go out on a call. It is about a very special family that may show up at your home, your car, your place of work or anywhere else you may be when you unexpectedly need help. It is about the best of us.
