The first Winslow Public Safety open house took place at Winslow Fire Department on September 30. Community members had the opportunity to meet and talk with the firefighters as well as other local public safety personnel from the police department and Delta. On display was a replica “Squad 51” that carried equipment that was made famous decades ago on the TV series Emergency, that portrayed the life of Los Angeles County, California Firefighter/­Paramedics Johnny Gage and Roy Desoto. This show was responsible for many people to pursue careers in the Fire and Emergency Medical Services. It also helped promote what the standard of care would be throughout the country at the time.
