    • Synopsis
    • Pittsburgh Fire Department 2721 has always been the center of town activity, but due to budgetary issues it has to close it's doors. As Chief Rupkie searches for solutions, big help arrives in a small package: Junior Firefighters, a new program that would entitle the department to Federal funding.
      David Hinkman is the first to arrive at the Academy. He is an eighth grader whose only thoughts are of Yale. Danny Madigan has no interest in some school that “sounds like somethin’ you do at your little sister.” He wants to be a firefighter, just like his pop was, and his pop before him. Tina Marie’s four brothers, tired of hearing her yap about being the first female firefighter in Southside, decide to ensure her future by gagging her and dumping her on the Academy’s front steps. Jack Morrow has no interest in washing dishes, trucks, or dogs. He is only there to fulfill his community service. “It was either this or pickin' garbage up off the side of the road, and that job was taken.” Then there’s Mickey. Nobody knows Mickey’s last name, where he lives or even why he’s there. The kid doesn’t say much, but he sure works hard.
      Just as this motley crew learns to work together, they discover that the City has used their money for other departments and the Firehouse and the Academy are forced to close.
      When an emergency endangers the local animal shelter, the junior firefighters must decide whether they’re ready to answer the call of duty. With the clock ticking, and the fire spreading, this rag tag group of kids doesn’t have long to decide whether they can prove that good things do come in small packages.
