Squad 51

Squad 51 Information

Squad 51 is a 1972 Dodge D-300 truck, one of 3 different rescue squad vehicles ("squads") that were used in the filming of the television series Emergency!

Because of the tight filming schedule, Universal Studios decided to build the vehicle entirely from scratch according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department's specifications at that time. After the filming of Emergency!, Universal Studios donated Squad 51, and it was used as a reserve paramedic vehicle by the LACOFD. In 1999 the title was transferred, and Squad 51 was then donated to the County of Los Angeles Fire Museum in Bellflower, California. In the same year it was thoroughly and completely restored by the museum, at a cost of approximately $10,000. Squad 51 is now residing with its co-star in Emergency!, Engine 51, which is undergoing restoration.

Plans call for the museum to completely restore all of the period equipment used during the filming of Emergency!

In 1999, Project 51 took off along with Squad 51 and many of the cast members from Emergency!, and made appearances in Southern California, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, Chicago, Long Island, Baltimore, Hyattsville and Washington DC.

Soon, the museum will be building a new facility that will house the squad and engines in a rebuilt facade of Station 127 in Carson, California, where the show was filmed.
