    Question Emergency!

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of engine the one in Emergency is, I know the old open one was a Crown, but the second, newer, one with the big windows. Just wondering if anyone knows.

    That was a Ward LaFrance. We had an identical engine in our department until 3 years ago. *sniff* I miss it already..

    Cool

    The Engine that was Utilized was a 1973 Ward La-France Pumper. This exact Engine still serves active Duty in the Yosimitie National Park ---

    Here's a question for you younger emergency fans....What was the Year, Make, and Model of the Original Engine 51 ? You know...The One with-out the roof. And what was the Original Company it was assigned to ? Remember Station 51 was not real during the show....Send in your Responses I know the answers but let's have some fun with it !!!!

    I believe the first tuck is a 1969 Crown Victoria and It was assigned to station 8.

    I believe the first "Engine 51" was a 65 Firecoach? (Crown) It was actually Engine 60.

    Ok!

    1965 Crown Firecoach which served as Engine 60.

    For the original question, the cool Engine 51(in my oppinion) is/was a Ward Lafrance 1974 P80 Ambassador pumper.

    This is the COOLEST TRUCK I have ever seen. I'd trade our 92 spartan in for it any day!(except of course on them tire fires when we need the pump capacity!)

    Anyway, hope I answered both ya'all questions.

    Peace out

    Pioneer chassis were American LaFrance, if I recall correctly the Ward we had and the one Emergency used were of the "Ambassador p-80 " class.

    Emergency's 1st season Engine 51 was a Crown Open Cab
    then for the rest of the show it was a Ward LaFrance
    Even to this day the LA County Fire Department still uses alot of the old Crowns and Ward LaFrances

    Yes it was a Crown -- '69 Crown Fire-Coach. During the Series it was an active in service Engine with LA County Engine 60 and Decals were placed over the "60" to make it Read "51" --- By the Way Crown Victorias are Cars Produced by Ford Motors Commonly seen as Police Cars

    Heck, we still have an originl,vintage squad 51. It's really starting to self destruct. I'm jut dying for a black engine with roadster flames--gonna call it The Stealth.
