The best music, movies and TV shows have already been made, we’re here to help you remember them all. Emergency is one of those shows that proves that.
Emergency debuted on NBC as a midseason replacement on January 15, 1972, two comedies including series The Partners and The Good Life.
The show ran for 6 seasons with 122 episodes, ending on May 28, 1977. There were six two-hour made-for-tv movies made in 1978 and 1979.
Produced by Jack Webb and Robert Cinader, they were no strangers to hit shows when you consider they created Dragnet and Adam-12.
In Emergency, the show is centered around Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe who are two rescuers that work as paramedics and firefighters in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The duo formed Squad 51, a medical and rescue unit of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. They work in concert with the fictional Rampart General Hospital medical staff (portrayed by Robert Fuller, Julie London and Bobby Troup), and with the firefighter engine company at Station 51.
