HEAVY RESCUE: 401
They go to hell and back to get you home
From the producers of hit international success, Highway Thru Hell, comes a new series that focuses on the unique challenges and difficult
working conditions endured by heavy rescue vehicles on the 401, the world’s busiest highway. We follow multiple major tow operators,
rescue and maintenance crews day and night as they battle to keep traffic flowing along North America’s most important trade route.
These businesses work tirelessly to keep the roads open through any weather condition. From monster snow storms creating kilometres
of mayhem to overturned trucks, their efforts prevent the 401 from grinding to a crippling halt through the worst of the winter driving
season. Heavy Rescue: 401 is a series about men and women facing incredible stakes in a fast-paced, relentless environment. Jobs and
lives depend on these highways. And it’s up to the Heavy Rescue teams to keep them open.
