Trivia:
The fire station seen in the opening credits is actually Station 127 and is located in Carson, California at 2049 223rd Street (off Wilmington, and across from the Arco Refinery). Station 127 was renamed "R.A. Cinader Memorial Fire Station 127" after the death of "Emergency!" producer R. A. Cinader.See more »

Never a moments rest for Squad 51!, 10 December 1999
Author: yenlo from Auburn, Me

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.
