    Dennis, thanks for the update. The change has been made to the link.

    And this has to do with what? I've seen a lot of nonsense that you have posted.. this takes the cake.

    PS: it's a fruitcake!

    PS #2: maybe he should have brought his Tonka and Matchbox fire trucks with him, too!

        What firefighter between the ages of 35 and 45 did not get their first real taste of firefighting from Emergency! ? You can/should mention it, but bringing in memorabilia is kind of creepy.

          OK, back to the fan stuff for a minute. We can resume fighting later...


          For anyone who is interested, there is a photo spread and writeup on the restoration of Squad 51 in this months MOPAR Collector's Guide magazine. It has an orange 55 wagon on the cover for those who may feel like looking.

          http://www.moparcollectorsguide.com/

          There is some very cool history about how the squad came to be, and where it spent parts of it's life after the show.



          Now back to the bickering...

            When people would come into our Station 1 for a visit from the parking lot,they'd see the back of our Unit 31 used for medical assist and calls where lighting was needed.The first thing they'd comment on was "Hey,that looks just like the truck on 'Emergency!'."

              Oh yeah, I remember watching the show. My dad was a volunteer firefighter, and would laugh at some of the stuff on the show, but for a kid, it was a great show in its day. I had the old metal lunch box of Johnny and Roy, but did not bring it to my interview with the chief when I got hired.
              I also remember a show that ran for a couple of seasons called "Code Red". It was also set in LA, and it featured a young boy taken in by a fire fighting family, he became a fire explorer, if I remember correct the young boy was Adam Rich?
              I have watched most of the fire fighting shows and movies, and find them to be entertaining. I loved Third Watch, not for the fire side of it, but because I loved to see how much trouble Boscoe could get himself into with his big mouth. I also liked to see how much Carlos would iritate the living crap out of "Doc".
              Rescue Me is a favorite for us at work now. Again, it is for the entertainment value. Not really for the "realism" of the show, but we do like to sit and say how much more interesting work would be if we did try to pull some of the stuff they do.
              Tv is Tv; work is different.

                Not sure how long this station has been on but Comcast Cable has a channel they call "Retro Television Network" with lots of old TV shows with both good and bad acting in them.
                One specifically is "Emergency" so if anyone has been jonesing to see Johnny and Roy using their thumbs to connect IV lines,use your channel guide to find what actual channel this is on.

                    My wife watched Emergency for the first time ever with me the other night, man I loved that show.

                    I have season 3 right now and I need to get more, my text message tone is a tone out from season 3, she did get a kick out of hearing that on the show after she hears it so much on my phone LOL

                      Johnny's "other job"

                      This morning I was watching tv,(NOT naked,in a beanbag chair or eating Cheetos!)and on RTN, the show "Operation Petticoat" came on.
                      For those not born before the 70s,this was a series based on a movie with Cary Grant about a WW II sub that was painted pink when all they could get was red lead paint and white paint.
                      The series originally starred John Astin as the Captain but later on appearently he left the show.
                      I do not recall Randolph Mantooth being in the series but this episode had him as a Lieutenant,possibly the Executive Officer.
                      Until now,I thought he'd just had "Emergency", the animated "Emergency + 4" and was riding the speeching circuit talking about what he's done for EMS and other subjects dear to his heart.

                          This just begged to go a-googling.
