Added DiffLines:

* ThemeTuneCameo:
** In all the episodes of seasons 2-3, the theme tune usually plays when the group is gearing up for a rescue.
** Bizarrely, and perhaps in an unintentional example, the theme tune from the first season shows up at the beginning of "Going With the Wind" (which was a third season episode; the second and third seasons had a completely different title theme from the first). This likely was the result of the fact that the music library didn't change from the design styles, but it can still be jarring if you knew the show long enough.

* ShoutOut: A few of the episode titles are this. "When it Rains, it Pours" is a reference to Morton Salt's slogan and "Going With the Wind" is a pun on ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''.

* AlternateTimeline: "Quake Me When it's Over" is an episode that centers on Wendy's dream of being in 1906 during the Great Earthquake, except she is unable to use any of the modern conveniences they have in the regular timeline.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In "Storm of the Century", Wendy mentions they're traveling to Billy's hometown, which Billy immediately snaps at her by saying "Wendy, we never let our emotions get in the way of our work!" Guess what happens later in the episode?


Added DiffLines:

* MultiPartEpisode: "Storm of the Century" is a two-part episode; since it was in the first season which entirely consisted of full thirty minute episodes, this means it's the only episode that totals to an hour. The Global Response Team era (the second and third seasons) used the TwoShorts format (two 15-minute episodes per half hour) and had some double-length episodes itself, such as "Heroes" and "Flashback to Danger".


Added DiffLines:

* TwoShorts: The second and third seasons followed this format; the first season averts it.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: In an episode involving a series of tornadoes striking near a beach, a boat is struck, knocking its passengers into the water. Gil rescues them and then asks "Were six of you in one boat?" The girl he's speaking to is still a bit groggy as she answers "Actually there were...[[OhCrap seven. Angus! Angus isn't here!"]] Gil ends up having to dive after the now-drowning Angus, who had been the only person on-board the boat without a life vest.



* MamaBear: You can bet that if a woman has or knows of a child in danger, she'll be this trope. This includes a random civilian in "When It Rains, It Pours" who deliberately tells her rescuers that they can't leave because she and her boyfriend saw some Boy Scouts on a hike that have not returned; she's quite insistent the Rescue Heroes go over them.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Averted. Rocky almost quits the Rescue Heroes in "Flashback to Danger" when he makes a mistake during a rescue. Billy convinces Rocky to stay after telling him the story about the only other Rescue Heroes to quit. [[spoiler:Turns out that the Rescue Heroes who quit was Billy himself. He ultimately decided to stay with the team after watching an audition tape Rocky had sent in two years prior to events of the episode.]]

* NotSoDiffernt: Rocky realizes this is true about him and the hot-dogging snowboarder the team is trying to rescue in "Peril on the Peaks"; their deviation from the plan puts them and others at risk. Rocky learns his lesson; the snowboarder not so much.

* GoodParents: Both the parents of the Rescue Heroes that we're shown and the Rescue Heroes who are shown to be parents themselves. We also see this in bystanders such as the mother in "When It Rains, It Pours" who got trapped in her house, forced her kids to evacuate to the roof and immediately asks Jake if her kids are all right when he comes in to rescue her.

job, partly due to [[ThePowerOfTrust how much she trusts her partner for the job, Gil Gripper]].
** Several rescues feature civilians who are afraid of one thing or another, often something that complicates the rescue such as an acrophobe who needs to be airlifted or an aquaphobe during a water rescue. The Rescue Heroes typically are able to convince the civilians in question to put aside their fears long enough to be rescued and have occasionally been able to help them get cured entirely.
