About

Emergency was a one-hour medical series ran between 1972 and 1977 (132 episodes) on the NBC network. The show revolved around Station 51 and Rampart Emergency Hospital. Station 51 contains a squad and an engine with a normal crew of six, two of which are paramedics.

The show follows the characters of paramedics John Gage and Roy DeSoto. Most episodes were split between rescue scenes in "the field" and follow-up treatment at the hospital afterward. Many episodes dealt with actual events. The exterior of Rampart Hospital was actually Harbor UCLA Medical Center, located in Torrance, California.

The show starred Robert Fuller as Dr. Kelly Brackett, Julie London as Dixie McCall, Bobby Troup as Dr. Joe Early, Kevin Tighe as Roy DeSoto, and Randolph Mantooth as John Gage.

Jack Webb produced the series and the executive producer was Robert Cinader.
