Captures the essence of an important chapter in TV history and the birth of paramedic service within the County of Los Angeles. The TV series followed the daily lives of a pair of LA County FD FF/PMs, along with their colleagues at Station 51 and the ER staff of the fictional Rampart General Hospital. The book offers a behind-the-scenes look, packed with interviews, from many of the medical and fire department technical advisors, cast members, writers, and other production crew members. Emergency! the series introduced audiences all over the world to the concept of pre-hospital care, along with fire prevention and CPR. When the world premier was first broadcast in 1972, there were only 12 paramedic units in all of North America. A decade later, more than half of all Americans were within 10 minutes of a paramedic rescue or ambulance unit. NOTE: A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book will go directly to the LA County Fire Museum Association which houses many of the early artifacts from the LA County Paramedic Program and Emergency! the TV show.
