The series was created by Sarah Smith, who read about NSW paramedics receiving rescue training for the new Special Operations teams (SOT ) and the Rescue Squads (RS ) in 2009. Sarah said about these paramedics, "There's nothing earnest about these people- except when they're doing their job, of course. When talking to each other it's all jocular humour".

Dean Gallagher's house may have been in Surry Hills.
