Given that the truck was on loan from the LACoFD, Mike Stoker , a firefighter from that department who was professionally qualified to drive such a vehicle and also happened to be a member of the Screen Actors Guild , was cast in the series. The mixing of stock station and response footage with footage filmed for specific storylines created continuity errors by mixing these apparatus.
Early in the third season, Engine 51 was represented by a closed-cab Ward LaFrance P80 Ambassador triple-combination pumper. Engine 's Crown, one of the two originally used for the series, was later refitted with a closed cab. Eventually it was placed into reserve status when Station received a new engine. In its reserve capacity, it was serving temporarily as Engine 95 when it was involved in a collision.
Damaged beyond repair in the collision, it was salvaged for parts and sold as scrap. The Ward remained at Universal Studios as a prop following the conclusion of the series, and made brief appearances such as in the film The China Syndrome and a short educational film produced by the National Fire Protection Association in As the fire department for the concession area was private not state or federal , the engine had the California personalized vanity license plate YCS E Per terms of a previous agreement between the Park and the County of Los Angeles Fire Museum Association, the museum assumed ownership of the Ward and added it to the museum collection.
In , the museum finished a complete restoration of the Ward to its original appearance in the show. Both of Station 51's vehicles have also been immortalized as Hot Wheels diecast vehicles Emergency Squad and Fire-Eater respectively. An antique fire engine was the part of three episodes of the show. In the third season, episode 2, entitled, "The Old Engine", Gage and DeSoto see a derelict fire engine in a scrap yard during a fire.
The script says it is a Dennis fire engine , but the vehicle is a Dennis Ace model, that was manufactured from —39 and sold to the British market including Australia, New Zealand, and India. Records indicate this model was not sold in the US. In Season 4, Episode 13, "The Parade", the two paramedics finish their restoration of the Dennis Ace fire engine for the California Firefighters Parade while wearing antique uniforms as well.
En route to the parade the two spot an apartment fire and respond in the antique engine using it and its antiquated equipment to fight the blaze. The Dennis Ace is heavily damaged when the structure collapses onto it. It came in an orange fiberglass case and was fully portable. It could transmit EKG and voice simultaneously, could be charged in 15 minutes, and had one hour of talking time.
The radio had eight duplex UHF channels and a total of 12 watts of transmitting power. There were two Biophones used on the series, one smaller than the other. This model came out in and was the first portable, battery rechargeable unit of its kind. The paramedics also carried some medical equipment in a black model "PF" Old Pal tackle box, commonly used by the fire department at the time.
There were instances when the actors encountered difficulty in pronouncing medical terms correctly, so some scenes show the characters from the back or behind a mask, which allowed them to dub in the correct pronunciations at a later time. The protective clothing "turn-out gear" that the firefighters wore, including the MSA Topgard helmets, as well as nearly all other equipment such as insignia, were standard fire department issue at the time.
The badges used in the series were authentic fire department badges. At the end of filming each day, they were collected, stored for safekeeping and then reissued the next day. Prior to Emergency! However, their crews rarely had training beyond basic first aid. Most states did not license them to perform more advanced medical treatment. The alternative was to staff ambulances with traditional healthcare professionals like doctors, which was expensive and posed recruitment challenges.
The conclusion is shared by Yokey and Sutherland in the book Emergency! Behind the Scenes. In , there were only 12 paramedic units operating in the United States. In the first three years that Emergency! On a federal level, the Emergency Medical Services Systems Act was enacted to encourage the trend.
The show was referenced during a debate in the Health Committee of the California State Assembly , during the passage of a bill to make the Wedworth-Townsend Act permanent.

You should always be able to stop within the distance you can see ahead. Fog, rain, or other conditions may require that you slow down to be able to stop in the distance you can see.
At night, you cannot see as far with low beams as you can with high beams. Slow down when you must use low beams. When you are driving in heavy traffic, the safest speed is the speed of other vehicles. Vehicles going the same direction at the same speed are not likely to run into one another. In most states, speed limits are lower for trucks and buses than for cars. It can vary as much as 15 mph. Use extra caution when you change lanes or pass on these roadways.
Drive at the speed of the traffic, if you can without going at an illegal or unsafe speed. Keep a safe following distance. The main reason drivers exceed speed limits are to save time. Anyone trying to drive faster than the speed of traffic will not be able to save much time.
The risks involved are not worth it. If you go faster than the speed of other traffic, you will have to keep passing other vehicles. This increases the chance of an accident, and it is more tiring. Fatigue increases the chance of an accident. Going with the flow of traffic is safer and easier. Your most important objective is to select and maintain a speed that is not too fast for the:.
Speeding traffic is the number one cause of injury and death in roadway work zones. Observe the posted speed limits at all times when approaching and driving through a work zone. Watch your speedometer, and do not allow your speed to creep up as you drive through long sections of road construction. Decrease your speed for adverse weather or road conditions. Decrease your speed even further when a worker is close to the roadway. You must not follow the vehicles listed below any closer than feet.
The rule does not apply during overtaking and passing, when there are 2 or more lanes for traffic in each direction, or in a business or residential district.
You need space all around your vehicle to be a safe driver. When things go wrong, space gives you time to think and take action. You need to manage space to have space available when something goes wrong. While this is true for all drivers, it is very important for large vehicles. They take up more space and require more space for stopping and turning.
Of all the space around your vehicle, the space you are driving into, that is most important. The Need for Space Ahead. You need space ahead in case you must suddenly stop. According to accident reports, the vehicle that trucks and buses most often run into is the one in front of them. The most frequent cause is following too closely. Remember, if the vehicle ahead of you is smaller than yours, it can probably stop faster than you can. You may crash if you are following too closely.
How Much Space? How much space should you keep in front of you? One good rule says you need at least 1 second for each 10 feet of vehicle length at speeds below 40 mph. At greater speeds, you must add 1 second for safety.
For example, if you are driving a foot vehicle, you should leave 4 seconds between you and the vehicle ahead. In a foot rig, you will need 6 seconds. Over 40 mph, you would need 5 seconds for a foot vehicle and 7 seconds for a foot vehicle.
See Figure 2. To know how much space you have, wait until the vehicle ahead passes a shadow on the road, a pavement marking, or some other clear landmark. Compare your count with the rule of 1 second for every 10 feet of length. If you are driving a foot truck and only counted up to 2 seconds, you are too close. Drop back a little and count again until you have 4 seconds of following distance or 5 seconds, if you are going over 40 mph.
After a little practice, you will know how far back you should be. Remember to add 1 second for speeds above 40 mph. Also remember that when the road is slippery, you need more space to stop. You cannot stop others from following you too closely, but there are things you can do to make it safer. If you find yourself being tailgated, here are some things you can do to reduce the chances of an accident:. Commercial vehicles are often wide and take up most of a lane. Safe drivers will manage what little space they have.
You can do this by keeping your vehicle centered in your lane, and avoid driving alongside others. Staying Centered in a Lane. You need to keep your vehicle centered in the lane to keep safe clearance on either side.
If your vehicle is wide, you have little room to spare. Traveling Next to Others. There are 2 dangers in traveling alongside other vehicles:. Find an open spot where you are not near other traffic. When traffic is heavy, it may be hard to find an open spot. If you must travel near other vehicles, try to keep as much space as possible between you and them. Also, drop back or pull forward so that you are sure the other driver can see you. Strong Winds. Strong winds make it difficult to stay in your lane.
The problem is usually worse for lighter vehicles. This problem can be especially bad coming out of tunnels. Do not drive alongside others if you can avoid it. Many drivers forget about the space under their vehicles.
This space can be very small when a vehicle is heavily loaded. This is often a problem on dirt roads and in unpaved yards. Do not take a chance on getting hung up.
Drainage channels across roads can cause the ends of some vehicles to drag. Cross such depressions carefully. Railroad tracks can also cause problems, particularly when pulling trailers with a low underneath clearance. Do not take a chance on getting hung up halfway across. The space around a truck or bus is important in turns. Large vehicles can hit other vehicles or objects during turns because of wide turning and off-tracking.
Right Turns. Here are some rules to help prevent right-turn accidents:. Left Turns. On a left turn, make sure you have reached the center of the intersection before you start the left turn.
If you turn too soon, the left side of your vehicle may hit another vehicle because of off-tracking. If there are 2 turning lanes, always take the right turn lane. Do not start in the inside lane because you may have to swing right to make the turn. Drivers on your left can be more readily seen. Be aware of the size and weight of your vehicle when you cross or enter traffic. Here are some important things to keep in mind:. What is a Hazard?
A hazard is any road condition or other road user driver, motorcyclist, bicyclist, and pedestrian that is a possible danger. For example, a car in front of you is headed toward the freeway exit, the brake lights come on and they begin braking hard.
This could mean the driver is uncertain about taking the off ramp. They might suddenly return to the highway. This car is a hazard. If the driver of the car cuts in front of you, it is no longer just a hazard; it is an emergency. Seeing Hazards Lets you be Prepared. You will have more time to act if you see hazards before they become emergencies. In the example above, you might make a lane change or slow down to prevent an accident if the car suddenly cuts in front of you.
Seeing this hazard gives you time to check your mirrors and signal a lane change. Being prepared reduces the danger. A driver who did not see the hazard until the slow car pulled back on the highway in front of them would have to do something very suddenly. Sudden braking or a quick lane change is more likely to lead to an accident. Learning to See Hazards. There are often clues to help you see hazards. The more you drive, the better you can learn to see hazards.
This section will talk about hazards that you should be aware of. The incidents of law enforcement officers, emergency medical services, fire department personnel and people working on the road being struck while performing duties at the roadside are increasing at a frightening pace. Move-over laws have been enacted, which require drivers to slow and change lanes when approaching a roadside incident to lessen the problem.
Signs are posted on roadways in states that have such laws. When approaching an authorized emergency vehicle stopped on the roadside or a work zone, you should proceed with caution by slowing and yielding the right-of-way by changing into a lane not next to that of the authorized emergency vehicle or work zone if safety and traffic conditions permit. If a lane change is unsafe, slow down and proceed with caution while maintaining a safe speed for traffic conditions. Slow down and be very careful if you see any of the following road hazards:.
In order to protect yourself and others, you must know when other drivers may do something hazardous. Some clues to this type of hazard are discussed below. Blocked Vision. People who cannot see others are a very dangerous hazard. Be alert for drivers whose vision is blocked. Vans, loaded station wagons, and cars with the rear window blocked are examples. Rental trucks should be watched carefully. Their drivers are often not used to the limited vision they have to the sides and rear of the truck.
In winter, vehicles with frosted, icecovered, or snow-covered windows are hazards. Vehicles may be partly hidden by blind intersections or alleys. If you only can see the rear or front end of a vehicle but not the driver, then he or she cannot see you. Always be prepared to stop.
Delivery Trucks can Present a Hazard. Drivers of step vans, postal vehicles, and local delivery vehicles are often in a hurry and may suddenly step out of their vehicle or drive their vehicle into the traffic lane. Parked Vehicles can be Hazards. People may start to get out of them, or they may suddenly start up and drive into your way.
Watch for movement inside the vehicle or movement of the vehicle itself that shows people are inside. Watch for brake lights or backup lights, exhaust, and other clues that a driver is about to move. Be careful of a stopped bus. Passengers may cross in front of or behind the bus, and they often cannot see you. Pedestrians and Bicyclists can Also be Hazards.
Walkers, joggers, and bicyclists may be on the road with their back to the traffic, so they cannot see you. Sometimes they wear portable stereos with headsets, so they cannot hear you either. This can be dangerous. On rainy days, pedestrians may not see you because of hats or umbrellas. They may be hurrying out of the rain and may not pay attention to the traffic. People who are distracted are hazards. Watch for where they are looking.
If they are looking elsewhere, they cannot see you. Be alert even when they are looking at you. They may believe they have the right of way. Children tend to act quickly without checking traffic. Children playing with one another may not look for traffic and are a serious hazard. Drivers or pedestrians talking to one another may not be paying close attention to the traffic. People working on or near the roadway are a hazard clue. The work creates a distraction for other drivers and the workers themselves may not see you.
Ice Cream Trucks. Someone selling ice cream is a hazard clue. Children may be nearby and may not see you. Disabled Vehicles. Drivers changing a tire or fixing an engine often do not pay attention to the danger roadway traffic is to them. They are often careless. Jacked up wheels or raised hoods are hazard clues.
Accidents are particularly hazardous. People involved in the accident may not look for traffic. Passing drivers tend to look at the accident. People often run across the road without looking. Vehicles may slow or stop suddenly.
People in and around shopping areas are often not watching traffic because they are looking for stores or looking into store windows.
