    Question to the good times!

    I LOVED Emergency! when I was a kid along with all the other Jack Webb series (Dragnet, Adam 12, Sierra etc.) my kids are 18 & 16 and they love em too.
    anybody remember one called "Firehouse"? they had a pumper with the open roof & it took place in a NY-ish type city. Always remembered every time they left on a call there was a guy who ran into the street flagging traffic.

    i bought both seaon 1 and 2 at best buy. the only problem is that on some of the episodes on the season 1 set, the shows will freeze up. however, my favorite scene in the whole show is from season 1, episode 1 when jonny is just a resuce guy and is stationed at his origional station, i believe station 10. the whole station he is at respondes to a warehouse fire. this is before he even becomes a paramedic. i also think its funny how it only took 12 weeks back then to become a paramedic. here in mississippi its 12 monthes.

    But the steam could be anything from incinerators to the heating systems used during the time....."Rampart Hospital" was and I believe a real hospital fictiously named for the show.....I think it was Los Angles County University Medical Center or something of that nature.
    The hospital was LA county Harbor General. That was my first Nursing gig out of the Army. ICU to ER to Mobile Intensive Care Nurse.
    Yep, I was Dixie without the "chest".

    I liked Kim Raver on "Third Watch" even though she reminded me waaaay too much of the ex.Too many similarities in body,looks,haircut and attitudes about her last ex to suit me.I was always afraid the story line involving her was going to sound awfully familiar because it had happened to me.

    Target has the cheapest price on season 3 I've found. Walmart has the best price for season 2....so far.

    I've watched the entire season 3 already. I've only had since Feb 13. My wife also decided to surprise me and she just ordered the entire collection--ALL 7 SEASONS! I can't remember which website she got if from, but I can't wait.

    Also, what kind of uniform boots did they wear? Those things held up back then. I got to get me a pair.

    I brought the season 3 DVDs with me to station 13 a few weeks ago, and one of the new kids was on duty that night with me. He's almost finished with paramedic school. He sat down and was immediately fascinated by the "old school" stuff as he put it, he finally asked me what we were watching..... I was stunned. You're a fireman! In fact, you're damn near a paramedic, and you don't know what Emergency! is?? Has no one ever told you? You got this far in your career and never heard of it? What is the world coming to??

    We watched three episodes straight after that, and I let him keep the whole set so he can watch all of them. I should have made him start with the first two sets....

    Now if only we could get Rescue 8 on DVD....

    We have a new Wally Super Center I think I will go see if I can buy them there or have to on line. You guys have got me wanting to go back in history and watch the old show. I remember when they first came out and the guys would all go to the station and watch it. It was like our training night.

    And their duty boots were for the most part were black shoes or black dingus style boots (Werju1 help me out) from that time era.
