'Emergency!' follows the adventures of paramedics John Gage and Roy DeSoto (Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe) of the Los Angeles County Fire Department's Station 51. Rescuing injured patients from crime scenes and accident sites, the pair works closely with the emergency room staff at Rampart General Hospital in a concerted effort to save lives. 'Emergency!' was the first series to feature paramedics rescuing injured patients from crime scenes or accident sites. The show was produced by Jack Webb and his Mark VII productions, as were 'Adam-12' and 'Dragnet' and thusly there is the occasional crossover in between the shows.
