Rick Newhouse is a firefighter in Chicago Fire.
Rick Newhouse was the newest member of Firehouse 51 in season 2. He first appeared in the episode One More Shot and stayed throughout season 2 as a member of Squad 3. He proves himself as an elite member of the CFD with big parts in two huge rescues, one involving a man stuck in a wood chipper and the other involving a boat crashing in to a dock. His specailty is diving and rescues a man with Lieutenant Severide during the crashed boat disaster. He also has a very likable personality Mouch and other fire fighters realize when he gets Chief Boden's secretary, Connie to smile for the first time the other fire fighters said. But with great rescue skills and a great personality the rest of the firehouse becomes intrested in his side job as a skip tracer (a person who finds people). The Firehouse, especially Mills (who asks Newhouse for a job) love Newhouse as a member of their firehouse and a great replacment for Clarke who was promoted to Lieutenant. At the begining of the episode it seems that Herrmann is jealous of Newhouse because of all the attention he is getting, But at the end of the episode Herrmann respects Newhouse. Newhouse also blended very well with Firehouse 51 and didn't cause any drama with anyone at 51.
