The film looks at the work of the police and the fire brigade, showing the use of emergency numbers as potential lifesavers. In case of traffic accidents, fires or catastrophes, the police and the fire brigade may reach the site in a few minutes. The film illustrates this with traffic accidents, injured people being taken out of danger and a suicidal man who is saved in the last moment before jumping off a roof. Furthermore, the film includes a rescue helicopter in action, a barn fire, the rescue of a playing child from a balustrade on the fifth floor and a sea disaster. An emergency doctor appeals to us to immediately report witnessed accidents via an emergency call. The film shows an emergency call centre of the Munich police force and mentions the issue of insufficient equipment of motorways and federal roads with emergency telephones.
