Firehouse (ABC 1974, James Drury, Richard Jaeckel)

Action adventure series Firehouse detailed the exploits of a fire crew.

In the series Capt. Spike Ryerson commands the squad of brave and hardworking firemen of Engine Company 23 working out of Los Angeles County. Like the similarly themed ‘Emergency’, there was much rescuing of people from dangerous situations. The thirty minute running time was possibly a mistake although it did allow the series to focus on the action.

The TV Movie pilot was broadcast in 1973.
