Roy and Johnny are sent to Seattle to study the techniques used there. A skydiver jumps off the Space Needle, a worker is trapped at the top of the Kingdome, and a fuel pumper loads a ferry with gasoline instead of diesel fuel, which sets the ferry on fire in the middle of the Elliot Bay.

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
