Did You Know?


Season 6 Episode 10: Right after the bus crash underneath the overpass, we see a brief glimpse of Station 127 in Carson California (aka Station 51 from "EMERGENCY!") . The clip shows the old Engine 51 (1965 open cab Coach) and Squad 51 leaving Station 51. However, back at the scene of the accident no squad ever arrives, and, the engine that pulls up is not the same as Engine 51. A Ward LaFrance P80 did make an appearance during one episode of CHIPS however. See more »


The protesters were all exposed to chemical fumes, the minister had a head injury from the crash, and the bus was disabled, yet all are shown at the plant protesting the same day. The injured would have been transported to area hospitals, and there would be no means for them to get to the plant without the bus. See more »
