    somebody ask me the other day if in one of the episodes if Roy or Johnny worked at a brush station?

  • #2
    All that I remember is that they are watching a HUGE veg fire on TV and then get sent to it to provide Medical Support at the Base Camp. As we know, they always get sent to "something" and ended-up having to bury themselves with dirt to avoid being run-over. As far as being actually assigned to a Brush Station, none that I remember. I even went so far as to review the backs of my DVD Series (yep, I've got them all).

        Rescue 51

        Mikeyboy....I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with the DVD's of Emergency. They even just had an open house @127's where it was filmed.

          They have all 7 seasons of Emergency now availalble on DVD.

          As far as I can remember they worked several brush fires but were never assigned to a Brush Camp.
          Train to fight the fires you fight.

            There are a few episodes where Squad 51 ends up at command centers or at another station. Your episode might be the one where Johnny and Roy are miffed that they are the only guys not paged out to a big brush fire. They eventually go and set up at Station 65 (I think). Like mikeyboy said, they end up going out on a rescue and get trapped by the fire. The episode is called "Inferno" in season 3.

            I can think of another episode in the last real season (6) where floods wash out bridges and they are stranded at Station 86. They set up a mini hospital in the bunk room and treat various injuries and illnesses. I believe it is called "Isolation". It's been a while since I've seen it, so I don't remember any more details off the top of my head.

              You can "visit" 127 on Google maps.
              The question I always had was about the 127 station itself. Where did they put the real rigs while they were shooting the show? Just park them nearby? I know that the only time 127 was actually used was for the shots of the rigs coming out of the station but you still figure they need some time to set up the lights, cameras and such.
              I like watching the series BUT have a problem with all the stock footage. Gee how many times do they drive past the blue warehouse? Or over the bridge near the train yard??

                There is another brush call where Roy gets bit by a snake, starts an IV on himself and is transported on the hosebed of the engine.

                  That was an MVA over a cliff. A forestry dozer was clearing brush along the road and saw the crash. A forestry Huey dropped a load of water on the car to keep the ensuing car fire from spreading, but it wasn't paged as a brush fire. The dozer cleared a path straight down the hill to the car and one of the FF's put the engine fire out with a fire extinguisher. John Gage went back after his portable after the rescue and was bitten by a rattler. It's episode "Snakebite" from season three.

                    All of the seasons are on Netflix instant watch now, too.

                    I like how they are first in at the harbor, in the industrial area, in the commercial area, at the school, on the mountain top, in the desert, and sometimes suburban too.

                    And they get on the scenes of their EMS calls, do all their work and turn it over to the ambulance without one word of report. Must be how California's system got it's start.

                      Now that I have all 7 seasons on DVD (6 regular seasons + 1 tv movie season), it figures that they would suddenly put them all on Netflix. .

                      It's interesting how the show evolved as far as the way they operated. I don't know how much of it was the way the show was written or how much the paramedic program evolved in those years. Probably a little of both. It loosely parallels the evolution of the casts' haircuts.

                          You are mostly correct, the incorrect part is that a Forestry Dozer and Forestry Huey were involved. They were LACoFD Units, yes LA County did start as a Forestry FD, but they have been the County FD for many years now. LA County is a Contract County with the State, so they have sole responsibility for F/G within LA County. Lately, CalFire has been moving Units into the County during high fire danger times and responding with LA County.

                            Were they not a forestry division of the LACoFD? I was not inferring that it was the USDA Forest Service or State Forestry Division. I don't know how the different components of the LACoFD are laid out so I just called it "forestry" because I assumed they weren't based out of a standard fire station.
