Storyline

After Roy DeSoto encouraged Johnny Gage to join the paramedic program, their first mission was to face their staunchest opponent, Chief of Emergency Services, Dr. Kelly Brackett, to support paramedic legislation that means getting help to where it is needed most. While running two separate calls with Gage and DeSoto, their mentor and friend, Head Nurse Dixie McCall, is injured and knocked unconscious.

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.
