    Default "Rescue 8" tv show VHS/DVD?

    Does anybody have the 1958 TV series "Rescue 8" on VHS or DVD? I keep an eye on eBay and Craigslist nationwide, but haven't seen any sign of them.

    This is why I wanted to be a Firefighter. I think any 9 and 10 year old wanted to be one because of this show. Thanks Capt...

    Jay, no problem. That is what us older guys are for, helping out you younger guys! lol

    For some reason I had thought this was back around '55 or '56. I may be thinking about another fire related program.

    The price is a little steep but I guess if one had to have it, and the money isn't a problem, go for it.

    Cap...I knew we were here for a reason.....but sometimes the youngsters do not want to take our advice. They just yell back and forth to each other.

    Here's link to a 1947 Ford rescue truck that James O page used to own, the same one he drove when he was on LAFD. Same truck as in Rescue 8.

    Anyone remember one of the rescue guys? Jim Davis, Wes, went on to become
    Jock Ewing in Dallas.

    When they were putting together the new show "Emergency", they wanted to feature James Page as a paramedic in the new show. Since he was a real person, they named that part Johnny Gage.
