Trivia

The dispatch controller who calls in the alarms to the Station 51 intercom was played by Sam Lanier. Lanier was not an actor, but was actually a real-life emergency dispatcher. Jack Webb wanted a real dispatcher's voice to lend authenticity to the role, and show the professionalism of the actual LA dispatchers. See more »

Goofs

In the second hour, the paramedics discuss with Dixie McCall a heroin overdose case that was just brought in. DeSoto mentions that the OD was a "...post-graduate mainliner. Sheriff's follow-up found two balloons of hash in her pocket." Hash is a derivative of marijuana. It is smoked, not injected, has no relationship to heroin, and is seldom distributed in balloons, as heroin is. See more »

Never a moments rest for Squad 51!
10 December 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Along the same lines as the Dragnet and Adam 12 format this 70's action series dealt with the adventures of a Los Angeles Fire Department/Paramedic crew. Each week they were fighting fires, rescuing various boneheads who had gotten themselves entrapped in everything from wells to car wrecks etc. I often wondered if any real life paramedic/firefighter had this much action each and everyday they would probably just throw up their hands and say "I never get a moments rest in this job" The show now starting to show a little datedness the episodes are never dull.
