Presents
“Fifty Years of EMERGENCY! on Television”

August 19th, 20th, and 21st 2022

Join the Los Angeles County Fire Museum for three days filled with cast appearances, autographs, camaraderie, nostalgia, fun and excitement as we celebrate Fifty Years of EMERGENCY! on Television. The show aired for the first time on January 15th, 1972.

THE CALENDAR OF EVENTS WILL BE POSTED AS SOON AS DETAILS ARE FIRM

On August 19, 20, 21, 2022, the Los Angeles County Fire Museum will host a public celebration at its Bellflower, CA facility, and others, to celebrate Fifty Years of EMERGENCY! on Television. The groundbreaking 1970’s television series was on the air during prime-time from January 15th, 1972 to 1977, followed by a series of two-hour television movies that aired in 1978 and 1979.

The NBC Universal television series EMERGENCY! broke new ground in both the entertainment industry and in the fire service. Often referred to as the first reality-based television show, EMERGENCY! introduced the American public, and the world, to the then-revolutionary concept of using specially trained fire fighters in the field to provide advanced life saving services. In the early 1970’s very few people had ever heard the word “paramedic.” At the time the show debuted on January 15th, 1972, only twelve paramedic squads were in service in the entire country – eight of them in Los Angeles County. By the end of the show’s seven year run, more than half of U.S. citizens were within four to seven minutes of advanced lifesaving care.

EMERGENCY! aired on NBC at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday nights. The TV firefighter/paramedics Johnny Gage and Roy DeSoto of the fictional “Station 51”, the apparatus Squad 51 and Engine 51, and the doctors and nurses at “Rampart Hospital” quickly became America’s babysitters. To this day, an entire generation of firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, doctors, nurses, police officers and dispatchers proudly say that EMERGENCY! was their inspiration for answering the call to public service and emergency patient care that has saved countless lives in the last five decades.

In addition to the popular EMERGENCY! vehicles, the Museum owns over sixty apparatus, hundreds of fire artifacts and thousands of photographs that tell the history of the U.S. fire service, with special emphasis on the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The collection is currently housed in five separate facilities, with the 16400 Bellflower Boulevard, Bellflower, CA location as its main Museum normally open to the public four days a week. The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is a California Public Benefit 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
