9-1-1: Fox Timely Show to Honor Real-Life Responders

Fox new show 9-1-1 will honor real-life first responders.

The drama, which follows police, paramedics and firefighters facing emergency situations, has teamed up with the Los Angeles Fire Department and National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to raise money and awareness for first responders affected by the fires.

Fox will donate $5 for every retweet to the Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and will match up to $10,000 donated to the group as part of the “9-1-1 Hometown Hero Sweepstakes,” where fans submit stories along with a donation.

The show’s stars, Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Connie Britton, are featured in PSAs thanking first responders for their work, particularly in the Thomas Fire, California’s largest blaze to date.

The clips will air on Fox and across social media when 9-1-1 premieres on January 3, 2018.
