Austin-Travis County paramedics will be getting their 15 minutes of fame, and then some, over the next 12 weeks. “Nightwatch Presents: First Responders,” featuring the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Service and another agency, premiered on A&E last night at 9:30 p.m. The show is a spin-off of the critically acclaimed “Nightwatch” series, which follows first responders working the night shift. The second episode of the short-form series will air at the same time next Thursday, Aug. 9. The short series focuses on the more dangerous or atypical parts of the job. The following week, “Nightwatch Nation” premieres on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 9 p.m. The 10-episode run will also feature ATCEMS employees toiling tirelessly through the night, along with medics from Yonkers, New York; Tucson, Arizona; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. And this season, the preview video teases, the show will even “go inside the 911 call room.”
