I also had the helmet, and also a Emergency SCBA. Also had the action figures, the Squad 51 truck they fit in, and the accessory pack- a jump kit, oxygen, extinguisher, portable radio, axe, rope ladder...and there may have been more stuff I cant remember...they also had a fold out headquarters. Believe it or not, one Christmas I got a toy defibrillator....it was not an Emergency endorsed product...it was a white metal case that when it opened, one side was a Biocom radio, and the other had two defibrillator paddles DW- firefighter/paramedic, and knew I wanted to be one since watching Emergency as a child

I used to where this hat and hold the Hotwheels firetruck that looked just like the one the guys drove on the show. You could push the blue lights down on the front of the truck and the I'd make the sound, Aaaa, Ooooo, Eeeee and push the hose in the back the lights come up and I was fighting fire right along side them. I also held onto the banaster of the staircase like I was on the back of the firetruck.

Great show. Always watched it as kids w/ my cousins and etc. Their dad was a longtime fireman, so we got the added 'in home' touch there if you know what I mean. It was fun to watch Chet and co do their thing every week. And to make the siren noises along w/ the trucks on the TV.

I ahd the entire Emergency! playset with the helmet and SCBA. I was one of the fortunate kids to actually get the black helmet like Roy and Johnny's. The crew from Station 51 and family that were in the fire services really influenced me on becoming a firefighter when I grew up. And although I don't have my favorite black helmet anymore, I'm still lucky to have my red one ( and my real fire helmets at that too !)

WHEN I WAS 7 YEARS OLD MY TWIN BROTHER INVITED OUR FATHER TO ENJOY WITH US EACH EPISODE , I REMEMBER WHEN GAGE WAS ATTACKED BY A SNAKE DURING A RESCUE AT A FIELD, THERE WAS NO CHANCE TO ASK FOR AN AMBULANCE SO HIS FRIENDS TAKE HIM TO THE HOSPITAL ON THE FIRE TRUCK

I must have gone though about 10 of these helmets as a kid!! We load up the big wheel with the garden hose put on the helmet and spray down the side of the hose pretending to be firefighters. The problem was all the water would peel that sticker off in a matter of minutes!!! Great memories though!!

My husband, a firefighter and paramedic, always talks about having wanted to be like Roy and Johnny while growing up. We have 6 of the episodes on tape through a Jems Communication promotion, and our son is repeating history by emulating EVERYTHING Roy and Johnny do! When my mother-in-law saw the tapes and her grandson's antics, she said she had just the thing to make it just like she remembered. So off to the attic and back down with the red Emergency 51 fire helmet! She had kept it all these years and it is now one of my son's favorite toys.

I didn't have this toy as a kid, but I always wanted one. I am a big fan of "Emergency!" and have been since 1972. I have a nice collection of E! items and add to it as often as I can when something rare comes up on Ebay and I can afford to buy it. Hey Marc C.---I have the E! LP you mentioned in your note.
Long Live E! and all it stood for and for all the Paramedics/EMTs it helped inspire.

Leslie Siegel remembers when she was in 5th grade and another girl told Leslie she knew Randy Mantooth from Emergency and he had come over to their apartment! Leslie Siegel believed the girl when the girl brought in a man's white tailored shirt and said it was Randy Mantooth's shirt! From the moment she gave Leslie Siegel that shirt, Leslie wore it every day even with that red fire hat that her sister bought for 300 pennies when the teacher took it away from Leslie! For years Leslie Siegel would wear the white shirt that the girl said was Randy Mantooth's until about 2 years later, when she was in junior high school and a friend of that girl who gave Leslie the supposed "Mantooth" shirt, told Leslie that the whole Randy Mantooth shirt thing was a joke, that the girl had taken one of her father's shirts, but didn't have the heart to tell Leslie. It went so well with the red Emergency fire hat that Leslie kept up the ruse and just told anyone that it really WAS Randy Mantooth's shirt, even though it was not!
