What a great day. Still under 240 lbs and I got to see somethings in person, I never thought I would. I grew up during the 70's and one of my favorite shows was Emergency!
Recently, episodes of the show have returned to syndication on METV and I have been watching them all! I ended up doing a search and found that on the first Saturday of each month, the Los Angeles County Fire Museum has an open house from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Here is why its cool, they have the original rescue truck, Squad 51, at the museum!
The truck was as much a part of the show as the cast in my opinion.
They also had the fire engine used in the series.
The museum has a bunch of old fire vehicles and is very much worth a visit to see these important pieces of history.
I even got permission to post a picture of The Boss! This required a formal written request in triplicate! World, this is The Boss. (The one in the hat.)
This is the L.A. County Fire Station #127 in Carson, CA. They have an open house on May 11. I may have to stop in for that as well!
I kept expecting the firemen to come outside and shoo me away. They probably see fans all the time though.
After visiting the Firehouse and the museum, we went to eat at a popular raw food restaurant in Fountain Valley called Au Lac. The food was incredible!
