Rescue 8 Trivia

    

While Rescue 8 was mostly about saving people in precarious situations, occasionally it would show a bit of the guys' personal lives. Often, Skip Johnson's wife Patty would become concerned about the level of danger involved in her husband's job.

Even though it aired nearly 15 years earlier, the Recue 8 TV show is often confused with a very similar series titled, "Emergency!". One major difference between the two is that firefighters were not trained as paramedics at the time Rescue 8 aired so their rescues were those more physical in nature. The recues on "Emergency" tended to be more oriented towards the giving of medical attention.

The real life Station #8 in Los Angeles is located at 7643 West Santa Monica Bloulevard in West Hollywood, California.

Most of Rescue 8's episodes were based on actual case files of the L.A. County Fire Department.

Jim Davis is probably better known today for his role as J.R.'s dad, "Jock Ewing" on the series, "Dallas".
