Pictured here is Squad 51, television paramedics Johnny Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe) from the show Emergency!

Emergency! Was a combination of your standard medical drama with the action-adventure genre. It was created and produced by Jack Webb and Robert A. Cinader, who were also the masterminds behind the police dramas Adam-12 and Dragnet.

The series stars Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe as two special-trained firefighters authorized to provide emergency medical care. They’d stabilize victims of car accidents, fires, and various and transport them to medical facilities.

The Smithsonian Institution has accepted Emergency! memorabilia into its National Museum of American History's public-service section. The collection includes firefighters' helmets, turnouts, biophone, and defibrillator. The actual vehicles of Station 51 have become part of the collection of the Los Angeles County Fire Museum.
