This series features the adventures of the paramedics of Los Angeles County Fire Dept. Station 51, John Gage and Roy Desoto. Together they respond to emergencies ranging from false alarms to major disasters. As at this time, the Paramedic program, which is designed to keep emergency patients alive long enough to get to medical facilities, is still a relatively recent service, the paramedics must be guided by licensed medical personnel through radio contact on site. This is where the staff of Rampart Hospital come in with doctors Brackett and Early as well as Head Nurse McCall providing the necessary instructions for the paramedics to do their jobs. In addition to that, we see the work of the medical staff on their own as deal with the medical problems they encounter. Written by

There are a number of stock footage continuity errors. The major one is the differences in Squad 51, which was always a Dodge pickup, but several model years were used on the show. Most of the street scene footage that shows the Squad traveling was shot in Season 1, so an older model usually appears that doesn't always match the Squad that leaves the station or arrives at the scene. Another continuity issue is repetitive use of the same response footage episode to episode, so the same cars are always stopped at the same spot at a particular intersection. See more »
My formative years occurred during the span of Emergency. It was a great show and an inspiration in many ways. I feel bad for my 3 boys that they will not now the innocent quality product that I viewed as a kid. Action, accidents but never pointless gore and suffering. I'd love to know how many of today's firefighters became firefighters after watching Emergency as a kid. Same goes for how many kids became cops after watching Adam-12.
Hopefully, Nick at Night or TVLand will keep these great shows around forever.
