Join Prime for another high-adrenalin, gut-wrenching and emotionally up-lifting ride as Rescue Special Ops returns. They are the elite of the elite. Heroes who risk their lives to rescue others. They are the men and women of RESCUE Special Ops (RSO). Experienced paramedics in peak physical condition, they’re skilled in abseiling, rock climbing, surf and sea rescue, 4wd driving, and fire brigade procedures. They’re the first to be called in for any natural or man-made disaster, salvage or rescue operations. The job brings them face to face with life and death situations everyday which they endure with training and a fair dose of humour. Deep down they’re just like anyone else, juggling love, life and career.
Tonight, when the boss of a group of corporate raiders suffers a heart attack on a cliff on a bonding exercise, the Rescue team is gazumped by Lifeblood, the new private enterprise rescue outfit, and their team leader Cam. Under orders from on high, Heidi is forced to concede the chopper evacuation to Lifeblood, but the dispute over who’s going to rescue the other hikers becomes moot when Rescue’s ropes go missing, making it impossible to get anyone up the cliff and forcing everyone to camp out overnight.
