Storyline

Roy and Johnny are sent to Seattle to study the techniques used there.

Trivia

Squad 51 had several boxes in the utility cabinet on the back of their truck: a small black "Old Pal" fishing tackle box containing their medications, and a larger, heavier wood-panel box labeled "IV" containing their IV bags and equipment. But on Seattle Medic One rigs in 1978, they used a large Plano medical-specific tackle box that you see throughout "The Most Deadly Passage" movie, notably in the Kingdome scene, and the M/V Klickitat scene. Seattle's version contains most of the needed drugs in the trays (except for narcotics, which are kept under lock and key in a different box) and all of the IV equipment stored in the bottom, all contained within a single box, which is much more efficient and one less box to carry when reaching patients. Many ALS (paramedic-staffed) public and private ambulances in Washington State still use this same Plano box model to this day, which is still considered efficient. In contrast, L. A.'s version, the "Old Pal" tackle box, is now considered a collector's item and can be worth around $100 on Internet auctions. See more »

Goofs

When Roy and John are met at the airport (Sea-Tac) The announcement gives a numerical gate number, but at SeaTac, each gate number is proceeded by the concourse name (in this case B concourse). After they are picked up, the exterior shots of the car taking them to their first stop (Harborview), they are heading north from the airport. The interior car shots have indicate they are traveling South as the Rainier Brewery is on the right hand side of the screen, Whereas it should be on the left if they are traveling North to Seattle from the airport.

Two Hour Movie to the Action-Drama Series EMERGENCY! ( 1972-77 ). The L.A. County Paramedics John Gage und Roy DeSoto are sent to Seattle to study the Techniques used there. Rescues Include: A Man trapped on the Top of the King Dome.A Skydiver jump of a Tower and broke his Leg and a Ferry Boat are burning. Great Special to the EMERGENCY! Series.
