Code 3 Emergency! Crown Pumper 51 LA County (12957)
Release: May 2001
Edition Quantity: 10,000
Engine 51, a 1965 Crown Firecoach, was the first engine company used during the hit television series 'Emergency!' A six cylinder, 935 cubic inch gasoline engine that produced 300-horse power, powered it. It had a 5 speed manual transmission, a two-stage 1250-gallon per minute main pump, and an open cab.
This engine, which was initially used in the series, was later placed in service at Los Angeles County Fire Station 60 on the Universal Studios lot. It was never assigned to another station, was never re-powered and was the last open cab apparatus used by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. After being taken out of service in 1988, the engine was donated to the County of Los Angeles Fire Museum Association.
Between the years of 1954 and 1977 the Los Angeles County Fire Department purchased 131 Crown Firecoaches similar in style to Engine 51. Today, the Department has 165 front line engine companies answering over 234,000 calls for service each year.
