Emergency!: Season 5
Emergency!is a reality-based show that takes a good look at what goes on in the daily lives of the fire department and hospital work, and everyday life-and-happenings. The show was based on the paramedic program that started in Los Angeles, California in 1969. Senator Alan Cranston actually praised the show for informing the public about the value of funding such programs!

Episodes View details
Gage, flying back to Los Angeles, tries to chat up a stewardess. That's actually good news for another passenger who has a heart attack; she knows right where to find him help. Back at the station, the firefighters respond to a motorcycle accident and a chemical fire.
John and Roy may finally have found someone to buy their antique fire engine. The squad helps a man who injures his back riding his motorcycle, a man who walks into the station and collapses, and a man who has fallen off a cliff. They also have to help one of their own when a firefighting practice session goes badly and volatile chemicals splash a trainee.
A construction worker trapped on a crane forces a perilous high rescue. A man finds himself trapped in an appliance drain, and his brother has an entirely different emergency. A sculptor cannot free her model from a full-body plaster mold. And Roy and Johnny stand for an election.
It's bad news for the station as both Roy and Chet are injured - Chet by an explosion and Roy in a warehouse fire. The paramedics treat a boy who fell out of a tree, and Rampart General treats a tree surgeon. Johnny catches some overtime with Squad 8, where the lack of equipment proves fatal to a heart attack victim.
Station 51 learns that a battalion chief plans an inspection visit, and strives to makes sure he'll find nothing wrong. A parachutist manages to snare himself in power lines, and a wife fears her husband's love fled with the diseased heart surgeons replaced and must be reassured. A driver overturns his car in a water sluice.
Station 51 receives a new trainee: Karen Overstreet, who is determined to prove a woman can do the paramedic's job. A man tries to gas himself, and then changes his mind. During a house fire, Roy tries to save an invalid, and nearly dies when broken wires send electricity through his body. Fortunately for him, trainee Overstreet knows how to use a defibrillator!
Once again, the others rib Johnny about his cooking, so he sets out to prove he can make a fine meal - and of course gets interrupted and the meal ruined. But he and a doctor treat a diver suffering pressure injuries using a decompression chamber. He and Roy also deal with a famous chef who refuses to admit he accidentally set his own kitchen on fire. A dust explosion and a gunshot wound finish out the story.
Paramedics respond to a two car accident, treat a man who fell while bathing, rescue a child trapped in a burning structure and help a drunk in a hotel without a working elevator. The doctors deal with a child who has meningitis. A woman's stomach problems nearly lead to mayhem in her family.
The paramedics help a couple on their way to a wedding who meet a fire hydrant first, and rescue a child from the back of a burning camper whose driver brings it to them! A truck full of a dangerous insecticide overturns, and there's trouble for Roy, who may have struck a pedestrian en route to a rescue.
Johnny's got another of his "brilliant" ideas: this time he's sure he knows a better way to log the squad's calls than the mountains of paperwork presently required. A diet pill overdose causes a personality change, and the daughter of a man who has suffered a stroke demands a specific hospital - one farther away than Rampart. Firefighters battle an oil fire on a cargo ship.
Johnny and Chet manage to destroy the station's television, irking the other firefighters. Paramedics rescue a man from a manhole fire. At Rampart, Dr. Morton helps a man with a bleeding ulcer, while Dr. Brackett goes from physician to patient when he has a bad reaction to a catfish bite. A man carelessly glues his own eyes shut, and a mudslide traps Johnny and Roy with the man they came to rescue.
A documentary crew follows the paramedics as they rescue a teen-aged snakebite victim, help a dangling stuntman, retrieve a boy who fell off a cliff and rescue a driver from a truck fire.
Cross-talk between squad 51, another squad and Rampart makes it hard for anyone to understand what's going on, creating a hazard. An airline stewardess wishes to end her life; she won't allow the paramedics to treat her, forcing them to wait until she passes out. A boy gets his arm caught in a press and may lose it. Two joyriding kids manage to get their car on top of a house! Chet purchases a pair of skis and while trying to wax them, accidentally sets them on fire. Roy and Johnny must cope with an explosion while rescuing someone pinned under a car.
Roy ponders whether to buy a house. The paramedics help a pair of kids trapped in a burning home, a pair of driving students involved in an accident and an epileptic boy trapped on a bridge. They also stay behind to look for a dog who belongs to a boy injuring in a car accident.
Johnny and Roy rescue a father and son from their overturned camper. The father's injuries will confine him to the hospital for longer than the boy's, so Roy takes the lad in. That's a mistake'; the child's a monster who tears up Roy's home and harms his neighborhood reputation. Brackett rides along in an air ambulance, and Early treats a boy with spinal meningitis.
Fourteen year old Nancy Benedict's father pushes her hard, wanting her to achieve Olympic fame - but a bad fall from the balance beam might crush those hopes. Paramedics rescue a girl suspended by wires and free a drunk driver trapped in a car. A train fire involving explosive ammonium nitrate endangers the firefighters.
Millie Eastman, once head nurse at Rampart but not retired, attempts suicide and finds herself at the hospital she once served. A paraplegic child nearly drowns in a swimming pool. At the hospital, she and Millie form a bond. The paramedics also help a family poisoned by carbon monoxide, a woman wrapped in plastic and a man pinned under a fuel tanker.
Johnny and Roy receive an award, but they cannot remember which specific incident earned it. A ninety-four year old man breaks his ankle dancing. A man passes out in the dentist's chair - is it his heart, or something else? Paramedics rescue a stranded mountaineer.
After paramedics rescue Grant and Robin Elder, they attach themselves to the station to help out, but soon wear out their welcome. A car goes right through a restaurant window, and in a scene straight out of A Christmas Story a BB injures a child's eye. While returning from a false alarm, Johnny and Roy rescue people endangered by a boat fire.
Roy and Johnny rescue a diver. Rampart treats a boy who got a severe stomach ache from eating raw dough, while the paramedics rescue a diver from a tank, and treat a mother/daughter pair: the mother has a heart attack and the stress causes her daughter to go into labor. A fallen electrical wire nearly ends Captain Stanley's career.
Johnny's got another of his brilliant ideas - he wants Station 51 to buy a nearby hot dog stand. Roy, as usual, is the wet blanket - but this time his caution pays off. The paramedics help a man injured while mowing his lawn and rescue the victims of a fire at a chemical factory.
A woman passed out in a bar is suffering from more than drunkenness. Johnny becomes the victim of a hit and run accident and is a terrible patient. Worse, his replacement Brice annoys everyone at the station. The paramedics help a heart patient and fight a fire in an abandoned building where Roy, Brice, and Marko are trapped.
