And finally, we meet the two stars of the series; I’ll just call them Susie and Bobby. Hope you like them, cause you’re going to be seeing quite a bit of them every Saturday!

If you look in the background on the right-hand side, you'll see that the doors to the fire department are uncharacteristically shut.
