Casey (Jesse Spencer), who is at the center of
an undercover operation to bring down a

a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes
putting team members from the Truck and the

other. Despite any differences, this is an
extended family, and when it’s “go time,”
everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way
than to lay it all on the line for each other.
