Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Former silent-screen leading man Ralph Forbes makes the best of his B-picture surroundings in Empire Productions' Rescue Squad. Forbes plays a fearless fireman, assigned to solve a series of arsons. It's rough work, and it takes its toll on Forbes' private life. Slow going for its first 5 reels, Rescue Squad peps up during its fiery finale. Incidentally, the cast member known as Leon Waycoff later changed his professional cognomen to Leon Ames.
