When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
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

The radio call sign KMG365, which is said whenever Station 51 is responding to a call, is still a valid FCC call sign licensed to the LACoFD. It appears on the station patches for the crew at Station 127, which was used as the filming location for Station 51. See more »
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. Similarly, when the squad only departs from a station in a later episode, the older Crown Fire Coach is shown remaining in the station rather than the current Ward LaFrance. See more »

"Emergency" was a show that had it all....gripping medical drama combine with high adventure and cliffhanging excitement. As a child growing up,it was a Saturday night staple during its run on NBC from 1972-1977. Basically,it was a show about paramedics but a whole lot more. The show not only follow the lives of two paramedics DeSoto(played by Kevin Tighe),and Gage(played by Randolph Mantooth)at Station 51 of the Los Angeles County Fire Department who risk their lives saving people in daring but sometimes dangerous situations,but it also follows the staff and doctors at Mayfair Rampart General Hospital,particularly the details in the lives of Dr. Brackett(played by Robert Fuller),and Dr. Early(played by Bobby Troup),and the head nurse McCall(played by 50's recording artist Julie London). Its premiere episode from January of 1972,was the most gripping ever,which in turn begins the partnership of Gage and Desoto and the situations they encounter(which in a two parter episode Nurse McCall is injured when she tries to save a woman from a burning car hanging inches over a steep cliff,and Gage and Desoto raced against time to save them both). The producer of this show was Jack Webb(the man who was Joe Friday from Dragnet) who also during this created the best action series ever to come out of the 1970's which during that time he was producing shows like "Adam-12",and "O'Hara-US Treasury")and its rarely seen nowdays(except if you catch some of the episodes on TV Land) and its one of those shows you don't want to miss.
