"L.A. Firefighters" (1996)" follows the lives of the members of Fire Co. 132, in Los Angeles County, California. Jarrod Emick stars as Jack Malloy, 132's fire captain who has recently had many difficult decisions to make, on and off the job. Co-starring is Christine Elise, who plays Firefighter Erin Coffey, a Battalion Chief's daughter. She can't stand how her overbearing father made sure that she was assigned to "his" firehouse. He never wanted his "little girl" to be a firefighter and is always trying to undermine her every step of the way. Written by

I vaguely remember this show because the LA County Fire Dept held a press conference and demanded basically that there name be removed after it premiered. I recalled the Fire Dept was complaining about how they were being portrayed on the show. The Fire Dept was shown in a bad way on the show. I remember in one episode, the captain casually walks out of the Fire Station telling the others he was going down the street to have a beer or two while he was still on duty. I think they were trying to make this show like "Emergency" but the failed miserably. "Emergency" is a classic TV show from the 1970's about firefighters and the profession. This new show does not even come close.
