    Actually. The station used on EMERGENCY! was Station 127 in Carson, CA. I heard the Ward on EMERGENCY! was still in service in Yosemite National Park.

    Also in real life 127 in Carson never had a Paramedic Squad. Just an engine and a Truck Co.

    Today from what I have seen on other web sites, the truck company these days is a tiller-quint and runs as quint 127.

    If anyone else has any other information just pass it along.

    Easy Tigger, Rescue 51 was never in service. That would be the "magic" of Hollywood. However, if you are saying that the Paramedic Program isn't staffed full time, I know about 4 Firefighter/Paramedics that haven't gotten the word. They've been working full time since before and long after 1998. Please pass the word on, Fire Chief....

    This particular unit is Station 163 in the city of Bell, California. The fire station in EMERGENCY! (station 51, John and Roy) is in Wilmington, CA. The fire truck they used in the TV show (can't remember which one, they used an American LaFrance and a Crown) is on duty in Angeles National Forest and the squad is at the Fire Academy/Museum. Someone has done their homework.

    In fact, just to make you airheads happy, the original Squad 51 (the '70 Dodge D300) is owned by the LA county fire museum. So you can take a little vacation and drool at it down there.

    There still is Engine and Squad 51, of the LA County Fire Department. Its home is even Universal Studios Hollywood, in Universal City.

    I believe someone, also not logged in, such as yourself, asked if it was a Battalion Truck or a Brush Truck. Someone else stated it was a Fleet Service truck, and I advised it is a Battalion Truck, and provided information to back it up. So in other words, yes someone did ask.

    Did anyone ask for all that useless information? I don't think so.

    This truck IS a Battalion Chief's Truck, Battalion 8, which includes stations 43 - 47 and station 49, in the East Desert Division of Riverside County. I live in this county and Riverside County Volunteer Fire Department has about 94 stations.

    Fire stations can have a mix of State, County, Contract City, or volunteer staffed equipment. All are dispatched by the same County Fire 9-1-1 Center and are part of the "Integrated fire protection system," under contract with the State.
