    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • During the "boy in tree" rescue, at one point the decision was to try to cut the tree down the center and pull it apart using the engine and squad.

        While Roy is chiseling the boy out of the tree, we can see ropes attached to the vehicles, and the vehicles positioned on opposite ends of the tree with no slack in the ropes. When the rescue is complete and the ambulance is taking the boy to the hospital, however, we see both the engine and squad parked on the side of the road in the same position as when they arrived at the scene.

      • This episode was a good one for stressing that everyone needs to know CPR. The Doctor who died of later complications because no one knew it at the restaurant, and the man who was saved in the hotel by neighbors who did know CPR drive the point home.

      • One of the best rescue parts of this episode was Johnny catching the baby the woman dropped down from the burning building.

      • As they are chiseling the boy out of the tree, one firefighter wears protective googles, but Roy who is doing the actual chiseling does not. He would have had to wear them too, for safety protocols.

      • In this episode at the Atlas Hotel, they defibrillate the old man in Room 310 without asking permission from Rampart. In earlier episodes they always get permission to do this first.

      • Squad 51 is alerted to stand by for the fire at the Atlas Hotel, which means to wait and see if they are called to the fire. When the units are dispatched, Engine 51 is dispatched but not Squad 51, but they go anyway

    • NOTES (1)

      • This was the second of three episodes written by Jim Page, who was a member of the LA Fire Department from 1957 until 2001, and was considered to be the father of modern emergency medical services. He was good friends with Randolph Mantooth, who spoke at his funeral in 2004. He was credited in this episode under the alias "Jim Owens."
