  • Unlike Baywatch, whose storyline only covered the safety in the Sea area and occasionally on Land and Air of the Fire Department, SAF3 covered the all three.
  • Though not a parody of Baywatch itself, it had a Baywatch type theme due to two of the original series crew being involved and many similarities such as the responsibilities of the lifeguards, their rescue gear and their outfits for beach duty, including an altered version of the iconic red swimsuit.
