** This keeps happening for "University Pipe Bomb," which took place in 1991. It became significantly scarier after the domestic terrorism of TheNineties, the [[TheWarOnTerror September 11 attacks]], the wave of school attacks like Virginia Tech, and the Boston Marathon bombings.

Added DiffLines:

** "University Pipe Bomb" did a reasonable job with its reenactment of the explosion, but the crater immediately afterward wasn't smoking and didn't look as big as the narration described, and in fact only looked like a little hole that someone had dug in the ground.

* WhatAnIdiot: Some of the accidents are caused by stupidity. Naturally, the show lampshaded this and showed how to learn from it.

** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqlc7cAoDxA "Runaway Boxcars"]], you can briefly see the locomotive from the start of the story pushing the boxcars and the car down the track. This proves CBS and the producers were too lazy to put a green tarp over the locomotive in order to edit it out in post-production.

* GatewaySeries: While not the first show of its kind, people who watched crime and rescue shows started with this show.
** While there isn't an exact figure, it's safe to say there are quite a few people who were inspired to become dispatchers, firemen, paramedics, or police officers because of shows like this.

*** A somewhat meta case: the toddler from "911 Snake Baby" grew up and [[http://www.nola.com/northshore/index.ssf/2009/06/snakebite_victim_finally_gets_to_thank_those_who_saved_his_life.html became a paramedic himself]] because of what happened.

** Repeatedly demonstrated by everyone in "Lizard Finger Lock." No one involved seemed to care for the eponymous pet lizard, although the responding officer did make it a point to say that he didn't want to injure the reptile since he figured it was the boy's pet.
