    Default Emergency

    Can anyone give me the address of the L.A. station they used as the backdrop for the show. I plan on visiting Calfornia this summer and would like to go to that station.
    Thanks.

    You might have a hard time finding it, if it's even still around. Considering the show went off the air over 20 years ago and they used a closed station, there may be a mini-mall on that site now.

    There used to be a web site devoted to the show, don't know if it's still around either. If it is, there might be some trekkie who would know. While you're there, don't forget to look for the Code Red station also.

    Good luck.

    Having a good collection of bookmarks does not make a person a trekkie or a geek

    Actually, I think it was open (and probably still is). They just filmed some stock footage of the outside and used it over and over again (same with the hospital). I seem to remember reading somewhere that it was Station 127 in Carson. Apparently, it was oriented with the sun just right for good camera shots.

    Lightbulb Station 51

    Skippy....IF you happen to find that fire station, be sure to take some photos and post them on this site. I'm sure people would be interested in seeing them!

    Get some photos of the current apparatus too!

    Sorry, I don't have the exact address but I can tell you the following:

    It is Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 127.

    Station is located on 223rd St. just east of Wilminton Blvd. in the City of Carson.

    Station is pretty much the same all around, has hardly changed over the years.

    And also since it seems that you like classic stuff, you'll love my website: http://www.geocities.com/crownisking/HomePage/Home.html

    Regards,
    Paul

    I had a day off while working in LA about a year ago, and I went and found Station 51/127. Wasn't hard to find, the fan web pages had pretty good directions. Looks a lot like it did, a little more structure out front now. I didn't try to go in or anything like that, I have no idea what their policy on that is. But there's room across the street to pull over for a few minutes. Hey, it's a piece of history, in a way... that show did a lot to introduce people to the concept of EMT's and Paramedics, as well as show some exciting rescues. Of course now, looking back, I want to scream "Where's your bunker pants?"
