There was a television show on many years ago prior to EMERGENCY and it too was about L.A. County Firemen who were rescuemen on a Rescue Squad, That show was called RESCUE 8
The show didn't have a long run but it began in the early 1960's. and basically featured the rescues performed by 2 rescue firefighters assigned to RESCUE 8. How many out there in this emergency group remember the show and can add any details about it. I guess I'm getting old but for the life of me I just can't remember.

Thanks Brother Bob ,
I needed the "pick me up" I was feeling a little LOW and OLD :) . I have "seen" an episode of RESCUE 8 ,which confirms it was on TV , but I am of the Squad 51 generation ,and now I don't feel so old no mo' ! Thanks , stay safe .
Al, I was wrong in my post about Loren Greene playing one of the Rescuefiremen, it was Jim Davis remember him Jock Ewing on "DALLAS" on RESCUE 8 he was fireman, Wes Cameron. There were 72 1/2 hour episodes over 2 seasons frrom 1957 to 1960, after that it ran in syndication for over a decade. I have heard you can buy these episodes from season 1 and 2 but have yet to find them out anywhere. Hey Bro. try looking for me down your way if you could or wouldn't mind. I surely would appreciate it.
I will also keep you posted if I find out more about the show. NOW PERK UP!!!! I say, todays a new and rainy day here but at least were upright and taking nourishment.

Best Regards
Bro. Bob
I found a site where you can order both seasons of rescue 8.

also if you do a search for it on your web browser you will come up with cast, and episods and such.

Thying to help.
Robert, I remember Rescue 8 so we must be in the same generation. Did a google search and found a web site that you can purchase a complete dvd set of the complete series. Go to Hope this helps you regain a bit of the past. Enjoy.
