The creme of Jack Webb action series ran 6 seasons from 1972-1979, inspired by CA legislation signed by Gov. Ronald Reagan on July 14, 1970. The new law paved the way for creation of firefighter paramedic programs all over California. This series showcases the Los Angeles model and the emerging specialty of Emergency Hospital Medicine. In Los Angeles, firefighters train to certify as FF-PM, employed through the L.A. County Fire Department.

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.

Hopefully, Nick at Night or TVLand will keep these great shows around forever.
