RESCUE 8

 

Rescue 8 is a syndicated American action drama series about Los Angeles County Fire Department Rescue Squad Number 8. It premiered in 1958, and originally ran for two seasons with syndicated reruns continuing for almost a decade after. It starred Jim Davis as fireman Wes Cameron, and Lang Jeffries as fireman Skip Johnson.


Rescue 8 was based on true stories ala Dragnet and was the forerunner to Jack Webb's extremely successful show Emergency!. The series follows the experiences of two rescue specialists from Los Angeles County Fire Department namely Wes Cameron and Skip Johnson. Their mission is to helped and rescue people from dangerous situations that might cause their lives such as car accidents, stranded hikers and a lot more.

This series showed more physically oriented rescues than the later, similar television series Emergency!, as firemen were not trained as paramedics at the time of its production. Guest stars appearing in this series included Walter Coy, Brad Johnson, James Philbrook, John M. Pickard, Tyler McVey, Mike Connors, Richard Chamerlain and more.
