Dove Review

“Rescue Heroes” is a wonderful informational and educational series about saving lives that everyone can benefit from. “Heroes” is an animated show about a group of rescuers shown in dangerous rescue situations. At the end of each episode, viewers are informed of the important things that many save a life and how to be prepared.

This team of specialists travel all over the world to help people in need of being rescued. Billy Blazes is the team leader, and team members get their direction from Roger at the space station. Whenever there is an emergency, the Rescue Heroes are contacted to help—whether it is on land, in the ocean, or in the sky. The team works together to save lives; no matter the danger to themselves, they do the job. This special team sometimes has to put personal feelings aside to do what is needed to help those experiencing an emergency situation.

You will learn about listening to others; situational weather safety such as in electrical storms, tornadoes, floods and snow; what to do when there is a fire; advance planning and being prepared for any emergency; and working as a team. This is a series that you will not want to miss, and the information from the heroes may save your life or someone else’s.

Billy and his teammates, Ariel, Wendy, Jack, Rocky, Jake, Gil and Cliff, plus a loveable dolphin named Nemo, each have their own specialty but always work together to save lives. They also discuss safety issues such as calling 911, not standing under a tree in a lighting storm, the dangers of playing with fireworks, being a big brother to young children, and educating children about safety. It is a series for everyone, especially helpful in prompting family discussions about situations that may arise and the precautions to take to survive an emergency.
