The story behind this meeting I was able to be onsite for is pretty amazing. The 50 year celebration for the (amazing – and part of my childhood) TV show Emergency! was scheduled for 2021. With COVID gathering regulations in place, the 50 year anniversary celebration was postponed. Lucky for me, I was on another event and Denny Hare the producer for the Emergency! 50 year event was a part of that meeting, we talked, I was invited to join the team for the now delayed 51st celebration of the TV show! The theater was amazing. The tech “pit” was literally under the audience seating with 5′ ceilings (note all the caution tape in photo!).

I did get to see, but not formally meet, Randy Mantooth (John Gage) and Kevin Tighe (Roy DeSoto) and the real Engine 51! Sometimes work is just amazing!
