Plot Synopsis

Instead of just focusing on a single city for an entire season, this spinoff of NIGHTWATCH follows EMTs in Yonkers (NY), Austin (TX), Tucson (AZ) and Baton Rouge (LA), as these real-life heroes risk their lives to work the busiest and most unnerving shift of the day: the overnight. In this one-hour reality series, executive produced by Dick Wolf, EMTs tackle emergencies on every level, bringing viewers along for the ride while also experiencing the high intensity environment of the call centers. Cameras capture EMTs in action as they treat an active stroke victim in Yonkers and a heroin overdose in which they use Narcan to try and save the patient's life in Baton Rouge. The urgency is palpable as paramedics face an Internal Defibrillator that unexpectedly malfunctions in Tucson and a six-car pile-up that requires multiple ambulances in Austin. Racing from city to city, the series follow multiple teams of brave men and women who stop at nothing to keep America safe while we sleep. In the series opener, "One Nation Under Watch," in Austin, Texas, responders run point in a massive multiple car collision and need to triage more victims than can fit into their ambulance. A combative addict and an overdose gone wrong offer tough challenges in Yonkers, New York, while in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, southern charm is revealed to have its own healing effects. And in Tucson, Arizona, responders do everything they can to avoid delivering a baby in the back of their ambulance.
On Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, A&E premiered "We Are Nightwatch Nation," the season finale of NIGHTWATCH NATION. Patrick and Danelle from Yonkers, New York, go above and beyond to help a schizophrenic patient who's had a hard time being taken seriously in the past. Far away in Austin, Texas, Holly and Chris have a scary run-in with poison control involving a nervous mother. Meanwhile, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has a busier than usual night with erratic patients, culminating with one of the medics saying, "Only on the night shift."
