Note that none of the front warning lights are "steady burn."

Default Showing my age

When ever someone discusses "Emergency" I ask them if they remember the B&W show Rescue 8? Nope. Same time frame as Sky King, Highway Patrol, and Whirlybirds. No one remembers Whirlybirds either. I think that was based on CHP. I would swap every thing I own for one of those trucks.
Geeesh. Well it was great to see the clip!
Thanks!

Thanks!
must be a age thing as I remember everyone of those shows. I always marveled at the fact that no matter what they called for or who they sent to get it the vary piece of equptment they needed was laying at the back of the truck.

I sure would like to obtain a dvd with these old Rescue 8 shows. This show was an early influence in pointing me toward my EMS and fire service career. I was already heading down this path when Emergency hit the air waves when I was in high school.

In the '59-'60 time frame I have a vague recollection of a black and white documentry about FDNY Rescue 1. May have been CBS. I've been looking for a copy of this without sucess.

I also watched Highway Patrol, Whirlybirds, Sky King, and Car 54 Where Are You. And of course Leave it to Beaver.

I remember all those shows. I also remember that 58 Chevy Impala convertible. My first convertible when I was only 17 years old. Yes, that is one I wish I still had.
