Maine #TBT Video: ‘Emergency!’ Stars in the 1975 Ellsworth Fireman’s Parade
Time for another trip down Maine's memory lane!
"Emergency!" (1972--1979) was a TV show about the crew of Los Angeles County Fire Dept. Station 51, particularly the paramedic team, and Rampart Hospital respond to emergencies in their operating area.
Stars Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe are seen as the grand marshalls amongst the floats, marching bands and firetrucks from all over New England. A fireman's muster ends the festivities shown.
