E.U. (Emergency Unit) is a TVB produced television action series broadcast in 2009. Its plot line and characters are a continuation of the previous crime series On the First Beat. The story concerns Kong Sai-Haeo (Michael Miu). Freshly released from a ten-year prison stretch, Kong has business to tend to in Hong Kong.

And some is family business: Kong seeks out his daughter Yau Yau (Elanne Kong) in an attempt to heal their relationship, while cultivating To Yik Tin's wife (Kathy Chow) to consolidate his position. When To is killed, Kong unexpectedly takes his place as the triad boss, and all of Kong's relationships change under him in dangerous ways.
