Welcome to my EMERGENCY!
A page dedicated to the beloved stars of the EMERGENCY!
hour-long drama series, Emergency!, was created by Jack Webb.
Inspired by an experiment that began in 1969, Emergency! was praised by
U.S. Senator Alan Cranston for educating the public about the value of
real-life paramedics. Emergency! was a show about 2 Los Angeles County
Fire Department paramedics, John Gage and Roy DeSoto who together teamed
up as Rescue Squad51. Along with the crew from Engine Company 51 and the
staff from the Emergency Room at Rampart General Hospital, Squad 51 saved
people from fires, auto accidents, natural disasters, sofa beds,
sinks and more. Emergency! made its World Premier on Saturday night
January 15, 1972, as a midseason replacement, and ran until 1979, and can
still be seen on TV Land at 8p.m. EST daily. After the
series' regular run, six two-hour movies aired at irregular intervals during
1978 and 1979.
