Emergency! was a popular crime drama/medical television series that was produced by Mark VII Limited (Jack Webb's company) and distributed by Universal Studios. It debuted as a midseason replacement on January 15, 1972, on NBC, replacing the short-lived series The Good Life, and ran until September 3, 1977. It was produced and created by Jack Webb and Robert Cinader, both of whom were also responsible for the police drama Adam-12. The shows were similar in that they featured dedicated civil servants handling two or three varied and unrelated incidents during a typical shift.

The show returned as a series of six "Movie of the Week" specials between late 1977 and the spring of 1979. Three of the TV movies have the two paramedic characters traveling to San Francisco (twice) and Seattle for EMS conventions. While in both cities they end up assisting the local agencies (San Francisco's Rescue-2 and Seattle's Medic-One) with several rescues. The others were "Steel Inferno" (a high rise blaze), "Survival on Charter# 220" (two airplanes crash over a residential neighborhood - at the time it was reportedly the most expensive tv-movie ever made), and a finale in which the firefighter / paramedics are promoted to captain.

About the series

The series followed the early years of the Paramedic program in the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) with the focus on the personnel of Fire Station 51, in particular Firefighter/Paramedics John Gage (played by Randolph Mantooth) and Roy DeSoto (played by Kevin Tighe). The paramedics coordinated with the E/R staff of Rampart General Hospital: Dr. Kelly Brackett (Robert Fuller), Dr. Joe Early (Bobby Troup), Dr. Mike Morton (Ron Pinkard), and head nurse Dixie McCall (Julie London). A Paramedic is a specialized health care professional who responds to medical and trauma emergencies in the pre-hospital (out-of-hospital) environment for the purpose of stabilizing and transporting the patient to an appropriate medical facility, usually by ambulance. ...

Minor characters

Other regular characters included: Captain Dick Hammer (first season alternately portrayed by Dick Hammer and John Smith), firefighter/engineer Mike Stoker (who, in real life was a Los Angeles County firefighter/engineer, cast because he had a Screen Actor's Guild card and could drive the actual fire engine). Chet Kelly (Tim Donnelly), Marco Lopez (uses his real name), Captain Hank Stanley (Michael Norell) (seasons two through seven), Dr. Michael Morton (Ron Pinkard) (in the pilot episode, his character is "Dr. Tom Gray"), and the LACoFD radio dispatcher (an uncredited Sam Lanier).


Other occasional regulars included Battalion Chiefs Conrad (Art Balinger) and McConike (William Boyett), and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Vince (Vince Howard) William Boyett (1927-December 29, 2004) was an American actor best known for his work as the low-key but authoritative Sgt. ...

Troup, London, and Webb love triangle

While Troup and London were married in real life, the character of McCall was written to be a love interest for Brackett. The love interest between Brackett and McCall was more evident in the pilot movie for Emergency! where they share a kiss together at McCall's apartment. As time went on, the love interest was phased out with more emphasis on the rescues and happenings at the hospital than the personal lives of Brackett and McCall, although they remained very good friends. Further muddying the picture, before marrying Troup in 1959, she had been married to producer Webb from 1947 to 1953. The divorce must have been amicable, as Webb had repeatedly hired Troup for roles on Dragnet and Adam-12 before casting London and Troup for Emergency!.

Highlights

The show highlighted the adventures of the then-fledgling paramedic program, and its popularity encouraged various communities in North America to establish and improve emergency medical services by hiring paramedics[citation needed]. Los Angeles County was one of the first communities - along with Seattle, Miami, and Pittsburgh - to start a paramedic program in connection with the fire department between 1969 and 1971. The show was also credited for demonstrating first aid techniques that enabled some viewers to save lives in real medical emergencies. When the medical community saw that the general public were using First Aid and CPR in response to this show, they started the teaching programs for CPR in every state. However, the show later had to add a disclaimer stating that the first aid techniques demonstrated should only be performed by trained persons.

Spinoffs

The series spun-off an animated version called Emergency +4 (featuring four teenagers who participated in adventures with the firefighter/paramedics) which ran from 1973 to 1976. The series itself was considered a spin-off of an earlier Jack Webb series, Adam-12. Strangely, the characters in Adam-12 appear in the pilot episode, while in another first season episode there was a subplot in which one of the firefighter/paramedics watched Adam-12 as a television show. Further complicating things, is the fact that the Los Angeles County Fire Department does not serve the City of Los Angeles, it makes the spin-off somewhat factually dubious, which is not typical of the ultra-realistic Jack Webb productions. John Randolph Jack Webb (April 2, 1920 – December 23, 1982) was an American actor, television producer, director, and writer who is most famous for his role as Sergeant Joe Friday in the radio and television series Dragnet. ...


TV movies and comic books

In 1978 and 1979 the show returned as a series of "Movies of the week". The movies were "Emergency: Survival on Charter #220 ", "Most Deadly Passage", "The Steel Inferno", "The Convention", and "Greatest Rescues Of Emergency". "Emergency: Survival on Charter #220" which was the 1st TV movie after the show was cancelled in 1977 and first aired in January 1978 would be the last time the entire original cast of the show was featured. After this, from "Most Deadly Passage" on, Gage and DeSoto were the sole original cast members in the rest of the TV movies that aired. The last movie aired "Greatest Rescues Of Emergency" aired in the spring of 1979 and featured flashbacks from the original series to the rescues that Gage and DeSoto were in. The paramedics/firefighters were also promoted to captains in the final movie capping off the 7 year run of Emergency with a very happy ending for both Gage and DeSoto. 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday. ...

Syndications

When the program was first syndicated in reruns, it went by the title Emergency One starting in 1976 to avoid confusion with the new episodes still airing on Saturday nights on NBC and continued to be called that when the TV movies aired as well. It would revert back to Emergency in syndication in 1979. Renaming programs for syndication was commonplace until the 1980s. It is rarely seen today because the series is now owned by the Jack Webb Estate. In the television industry (as in radio), syndication is the sale of the right to broadcast programs to multiple stations, without going through a broadcast network. ... 1976 (MCMLXXVI) was a leap year starting on Thursday. ...

Series Format

Where Webb's Dragnet typically followed a pair of detectives investigating a single crime or a series of related crimes, Emergency typically followed the firefighters and paramedics of Station 51, and the Emergency Room staff of Rampart Hospital, through a series of incidents, some of which advance one or more overall plot threads that serve to unify the episode, and others of which are completely unrelated. Usually, the very first incident (or occasionally its aftermath) will begin the overall plot. Most episodes included at least one incident included strictly for comic relief (such as a pet rabbit stuck in a tuba, or Dr. Early accidentally lodging a stethoscope earpiece in his ear, or a woman glued to her own toilet seat with fast-drying epoxy paint, or Gage forcibly opening toy handcuffs [but not before giving their owners some good-natured teasing by proposing to use their K12 circular power saw tool), and the episodes nearly always concluded with a spectacular fire or rescue taking up the entire final act (with the overall plot usually concluding either just before, during, or after this final incident). Dragnet was a long-running radio and television police procedural drama about the cases of a dedicated Los Angeles police detective, Sergeant Joe Friday, and his partners. ...


Where Dragnet and Adam-12 were half-hour shows, Emergency, because of the greater scope of its format, was a full-hour series. Dragnet was a long-running radio and television police procedural drama about the cases of a dedicated Los Angeles police detective, Sergeant Joe Friday, and his partners. ... Adam-12 was a television program which ran from 1968 until 1975 on police officers, of the Rampart Division , veteran Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and rookie Jim Reed (Kent McCord), and their sergeant, played by William Boyett. ...


Trivia

  • A dog named "Boot" (firefighter slang for "rookie") can be seen as a mascot in the early seasons of the show. In later years a lethargic Basset Hound named "Henry" became the station mascot.
  • The station used in the series is actually Los Angeles County Station 127 in Carson, California at 33°49′28″N, 118°14′18″W. The fire station, which can be seen in the background of station establishing shots, is located on 223rd Street between Wilmington and Alameda Streets. It was chosen for its natural lighting and was later named in honor of series co-creator Robert A. Cinader, who selected the station to be used, and who executive-produced the series from seasons 3 through 7.
  • In 1994, the L.A. County Fire Department officially changed the designation of the fire station located on the grounds of Universal Studios to Station 51. It houses a three-person engine, and a two-person paramedic unit. The radio call sign of the paramedic unit is indeed Squad 51.
  • Rampart General Hospital is actually Los Angeles County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, located in Torrance, California at 1000 West Carson Street, the intersection of Vermont Avenue and Carson Street at 33°49′49″N, 118°17′30″W. At the time of most of the filming it was known as Harbor General Hospital, as the name change was approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in 1978. [1]
  • The character "John Gage" was named for James O. Page, a LACoFD battalion chief in charge of development of the paramedic rescue squads who was a technical advisor to Webb and Cinader. Page went on to become a lawyer and publisher of the Journal of Emergency Medical Services. He died of a heart attack while swimming in 2004 at age 68.
  • The Squad 51 vehicle is a 1972 Dodge utility body, which was supplied to Universal Studios for use on the program and had its rear section built according to LACoFD blueprints by Universal. After the end of the series in 1978, the unit was given to the LACoFD and was used occasionally as a reserve unit. In 1999 it was donated to the County of Los Angeles Fire Museum Association, from the LACoFD, and was restored by the museum. The museum also is home to a 1965 Crown Firecoach which was used in the series. [2]
  • Engine 51 during the first two seasons was a 1965 Crown Firecoach. Universal Studios used Engine 127 for the indoor shots and Engine 60 for the outdoor. The second engine was a 1973 Ward LaFrance P80 Ambassador which is still in service at Yosemite National park.
  • Dick Hammer (first season captain) and Mike Stoker were actual Los Angeles County firefighters. Hammer died in 1999 and Stoker retired with the rank of Captain in 1996.
  • The dispatcher heard in the show, Sam Lanier, was an actual Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.
  • The footage of the dispatcher appears to have been filmed at the LACoFD dispatch center in East LA. The screen he looks at to see the street maps is a rear projection from a Kodak Carousel projector built into the console.
  • KMG365, which was said by the captain after acknowledging a call was supposed to be the FCC callsign for station 51 and is an actual callsign used by LACoFD.
  • The electrocardiograph (ECG or EKG) machine used in the show was a Datascope model 850 Dual Trace Physiological Monitor. This model came out in 1971 and was the first portable, battery rechargable unit of its time.
  • The tones heard before the voice announcing a call were actual Motorola Quik Call I codes used by LACoFD up through the 1990s. Each station had two pair of tones (the second in each pair slightly longer than the first) assigned to it. The station's main base station radio was usually in "quiet" mode, so those present wouldn't have to hear every transmission over the fire channel, all day and night. The dispatcher would select the station to be "toned out" on his radio console, then the Quik Call system would key the radio and transmit the tones. The first set of tones would unsquelch the radio and turn on the loudspeakers in the station. The second set of tones could be heard, and would activate the horn which would sound in the firehouse to alert personnel that their station is being called to a dispatch. Both sets of tones could be heard over the radio in scenes showing the Station 51 crews being "toned out" when they weren't in the station.
  • Many dangerous rescue scenes involving Johnny (Randolph Mantooth) and Roy (Kevin Tighe) were filmed using a combination of location footage utilizing stuntmen in the wide shots, and studio-shot footage of the actors for the close up shots. This is particularly noticeable in an episode with a rescue on a construction crane.
  • The protective clothing that the firefighters wore were L.A. County Fire Dept. issue at the time, as with all of the equipment.
  • The actors had a lot of trouble pronouncing the 'medical' words in the show, so many scenes show the characters from the back or behind a mask, allowing them to dub in the correct pronunciation after the scene was shot.
  • Noted composers Nelson Riddle and Billy May are credited with the music for the series.

Emergence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3102 words)
Emergence is the process of complex pattern formation from more basic constituent parts or behaviors.
It may, however, be profitable to consider the "emergence" of the texture of the cake as a relatively complex result of the baking process and the mixture of ingredients.
In physics, emergence is used to describe a property, law, or phenomenon which occurs at macroscopic scales (in space or time) but not at microscopic scales, despite the fact that a macroscopic system can be viewed as a very large ensemble of microscopic systems.
EXPLAINING EMERGENCE:- towards an ontology of levels (13523 words)
The recent approaches to emergence and their implications for the ontology and epistemology of the concept of emergence will be considered in detail in a separate paper, but the general implications for explaining emergent phenomena seems to be clear and shall be considered briefly.
Thus 'emergence' is a genuine phenomenon, but we can conceive of an explanation in the form of a scenario or a sequence of plausible events, each contributing to increase the complexity of the constituent sub-systems (macromolecules and their chemical reactions) and ending up with full-fledged cells.
Emergence as a single process does not constitute levels but only entities; the emergence of primary levels are a combination of entity constitution and subsequent level constitution, by generation of relations between the entities.
