Added DiffLines:

* DomesticAbuse: Several of the stories are about assaults and other incidents involving an estranged spouse assaulting their husband or wife. One frightening example was "Christina's Call," where a man broke into his soon-to-be ex-wife's house, and what turned out to be a brutal stabbing could be heard in the background. (The assailant was later arrested and served time in prison.)

Added DiffLines:

* PaedoHunt: Several stories focused on rescuing children from the clutches of kidnappers, most of whom had intent to do them harm. One particular frightening story focused on a stranger luring away one of two sisters who were playing in a yard (using the old "I've lost money, can you help me find it" trick).

Added DiffLines:

* JustInTime: Many of the rescues happen moments before the potential danger takes full effect ... for instance, escaping a burning house moments before the house is fully ventilated and explodes into a fireball.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Often, speculation as to what might have happened had something not gone the way the rescues went. For instance, in many stories about a house fire (one example is "Sisterly Save"), opening the door when the door feels warm [[note]]-- the girl who was interviewed said she had learned that safety tip in school (to never open a door that feels warm) --[[/note]] might have led to a back draft and near-instant death.

Added DiffLines:

* HouseFire: The subject of many stories, the dilemmas the subjects face and how they ultimately escaped with little more than minor injuries and a scarred, frightening experience ... and how the families rebuilt afterwards.

When originally aired on CBS, episodes were typically an hour long, although segments could (and would) be trimmed to create half-hour or even quarter-hour episodes, depending on how much time the network needed to fill. A half-hour version later aired in syndication. JusticeNetwork started airing the show in late 2017.

* SuddenDownerEnding: Somewhat in the episode “Bingo”. While the episode is no laughing matter, (It’s about [[spoiler: a mother who got shot by her husband and was left to die, and wasn’t found for two days, and she becomes quadriplegic as a result of her wounds]]), the episode still needs on a happy note, showing the victim playing with her young son and titular dog that saved her life. That is, until [[EditedForSyndication reruns aired a few months later]], with this text added at the end: [[spoiler: On March 24, 1991, Rhonda died from complications resulting from her injuries.]]
