EMTs, aka emergency medical technicians, deal with life or death situations on an almost daily basis. However, between administering life-saving CPR and trying to shock someone's heart back to life, they see some pretty some weird (read: hilarious) stuff.

"When we're talking to EMTs about the show ... I say it's a comedy and they say, 'Thank God,' and they tell me 10 funny things that happened to them on the job," Sirens executive producer Bob Fisher tells "A little bit of it is as a coping mechanism ... but, the body can be a funny thing, and so when you're dealing with these EMT calls, you're dealing with the heart of what is funny."
