Host- And we're back with EMSLive, I'm Darek DeSaunier with...
Host2- John Bignell...
Host- We...are VERY excited to have.. our next guest.
He is... an
actor, director, writer and producer and..
Host- ....and now he's on EMS Live.
Host- Did you watch Emergency?
Host2- I sure did.
Host- I think...everyone did. I.. On the Firefighter dot com forum, I
didn't get to
all the forums but.., almost, I think it was something like
57% started their career based on watching
that TV show.
Host2- Well, with 30 million viewers per week, I believe, it was extremely
And, we welcome Randy Mantooth, now,.... to EMS Live.
Host- Welcome to the show, Randy.
Ah,, thank you very much. I appreciate it.
Host2- How do you wrap your head around the fact
Emergency had such a profound influence on the EMS profession in
Well, I have to say that sometimes it's v-very *chuckling* difficult to
wrap my head around that.
Uh.. ah.. Like I've always said, ah... y--, When
we were doing the show... We didn't know that..
uh,.. We didn't know that
we were having uh,..the impact that we were having on on- the uh,
medicine america psyche.
We were just mainly kids, uh, complaining, mostly about how early we
had to get up and go to work!
And, uh.. but uh, the show. I think it- I think it dawned on
both Kevin and
I, uh, once the show wrapped..., uh, when we realized that uh, when we
the show, there were only eight paramedics in California
and they weren't even certified to do what
they were trained to do.
And..at the- by the- time the show ended, seven years later, umm, uh,
most of America was between four and seven minutes away from uh,
emergency medicine in the field
and I ..think it began to dawn on us ...
Oh, well, we were ..kind of involved in a very important
Host2- Modern medic-- modern medical TV shows have been around
..for....quite a while
but..., when you look at the advancements of the health
care profession. What made this one so special?
What was...so different?
RM- Well, I-I-I.. think it was the fact that it..it was so brand new!
concept uh, of paramedics just didn't EXIST...before that. I remember
when I first
started the show, they told me that I was going to be playing..
uh,. Johnny Gage, ...uh,.. firefighter/paramedic,
the first thing I asked
was..What was a paramedic? Uh,..Because I, uh.. had certainly had
heard of it before umm and uh, in fact I even said, Is that like
a -a doctor who parachutes on in?
Host- I think a lot of people asked that question.
well you know, eh, To tell you the truth, we weren't
that *laughing* f-far off! Uh, w-we did kinda
drop in all over but, uh,
out of helicopters every now and then, but, uh... I think th-that..it was
uh, eh, th- that concept, th- the fact that uh, it didn't exist before.
And I think what was
uh, also very instrumental in in.. uh, capturing
the imagination of, uh, ah, of america/
END Part One..
RM-....of the time, with the fact that..uh,
Bob Senator, the uh,
creator and the uh,..executive producer of the show, wanted to
make it as
real as the- as he could possibly make it, given, you
know, given th- the time that we shot it in
the 1970s. And NBC was
not used to, uh um, uh, having a show quite that real, on, eh, eh,
know, their scripted shows and to delve more into the uh, into the
drama and uh, uh, Bob said, uh,
the drama will follow. All we have to
do is be as realistic as possible. Uh, in fact, his mantra
was , If it didn't
happen, uh, uh, we don't do it if the Los Angeles County Fire Department
do it, we don't do it. If the Los Angeles County Fire Department
doesn't use it, we won't use it.
And as a result, uh, it gave it, uh, a bit
of uh, r-realistic uh, uh, taste to the show, th- that
uh previously had
really not existed before.
Host- Randy we've got uh, oh, a number of people
in our chat room,
who are just itching to ask you some questions. Ah, I think I'll start with
training you received. They want to know a little bit about the training
you received for the show.
RM- Well, we had to take the uh, the *laughing* paramedic course. Um,
now uh, mind you, we
didn't take the written course, uh. And we were, we
were just actors, that we kept telling them.
Uh, we were just actors. W-why
do we have to take this course? And-and Bob, uh, uh, in his wisdom,
said, I don't want you learning all this stuff in front of the camera. I want
you to know as
much as you possibly can, uh, before the cameras roll. So,
uh, when you start to do an IV, I want
it to look real. When you, uh, when
you use the paddles, I want, uh, that to look as real as possible.
we- we sort of took the physical course, uh, uh, actually started an IV, uh,
uh, on a
real brave soul who actually let me.
RM- ...let me come within five
feet of him with a needle. Umm, but we
were actually taking the courses and learning, uh, a whole
language! Uh, it might've-might as well been Russian to me I- uh, but
after a while you
get, uh, y-you get pretty comfortable with the language.
You get pretty comfortable with uh, handling
a lot of the, uh, medical
instruments and ah, and, as a r- and then- then of course, through the
seven years of the show, you really DID become very familiar with the, not
only the- the uh, paramedic
uh, ah instruments that we were using, but, ah,
being a firefighter, too. We were actually, uh, we
were the first people,
ever, to use the uh, jaws of life uh, ah, ah-on television. In fact, I was.
was th- I, uh, I've never h-held anything so heavy in my life. I- Uh, I
remember uh, th-the
first time I used it. Uh, ah, I jammed it into the back
of a door of a big semi truck...
RM-..and umm, it slipped off the lip. And literally sent me flying. I didn't
even realize I was,
uh, it had knocked me down, until I was just sitting
there with *laughing* this eighty pound heh,
piece of machinery laying
in my lap, saying, What happened? Uh, uh, so we got to, uh, we got to
be on the cutting edge uh, of using, uh, a lot of equipment that was
brand new then, which is pretty-
pretty old hat now.
Host- Well, uh, that's what made the show so special. The cutting edge
RM- Yeah. An-an-and, uh, at the time, uh, w-we, uh, w-when we were,
when we were first introducing
a lot of this stuff, uh, uh, we were seeing it,
actually before a lot of, uh, ah, a good majority
of the, uh, fire departments
all over the United States, had never even seen it, heard of it, an-and
we were, uh..
RM- ... blessed with uh, with uh, all this cutting
edge technology. Ah, an-
uh, of course, uh, the people w-who made this stuff, knew that they had
national audience. And uh, so they quickly provided it. And a, *chuckling*
and of course, Bob
said, uh, Does the L-Los Angeles County Fire Department
use this? He said, well, no, they don't.
He said, well, you know, until they
use it, we can't use it. And so, all of the sudden, Los Angeles
Department found themselves, uh, *laughing*..
Host-...getting lots of new equipment!
RM-....*chuckling*..with a lot of, uh, with a lot of donated equipment! Uh,
an-an, uh, ey-uh,
And then we would, uh, we would actually be able to use it
on the show at that point.
Hey, a question coming from the World Without Borders chatroom.
Ambulance Al is asking, Was your character
based on James O Page, the
late, James O Page?
RM- Uh, no, no, He wa- well, somebody said that,
uh, that uh, the name of,
and I uh, had just heard this a couple of years ago, that the name was uh,
ah,..my name was uh, umm picked, uh, at first it was gonna be James
END Part Two
RM- Umm, uh, and then James Page himself,
said that he didn't want that. And so, Jack Webb then changed the
name to uh.. Johnny
Gage. But it wasn't based, on- on his, ah, on- on his
uh, his character. Or, if it was, it was certainly,
uh- nn, it was news to me.
Host2- There's been a lot of ...seventies TV shows being made into
movies. Do you think Emergency will have a reunion or.. a two
thousand *indistinct word*
RM- *responding quickly* No. That I can- I can say quite clinically,
tha- that that, no, will never
happen. N- Nobody *laughing*..You know,
I watched the reunion shows an-and all they do is depress
RM- Ah,..*laughing* uh, nobody wants to see, you know, Johnny
out there and go, *imitating an old man's voice* Hey, Roy! IV D5W. *
then in a normal
voice* uh, you know...
RM-...Johnny and Roy... You just can't capture lightning
in a bottle.
Don't even wanna try. Um, uh, we've w-we're not old enough, I mean,
old to be paramedics now,..and, ah... Why would anybody
WANT it? Uh, because paramedics now, everybody
knows what a
paramedic is. And I wou- I think.. that it's seventy five percent of the
uh, out there, * sigh* listening out there are either paramedics,
or, they have been, uh, uh, *chuckling*
rescued by a paramedic, or-or
treated by a paramedic, so, the only other reason to watch a reunion
show was- would be to see how, ah,...how ah,.. Johnny and, uh,
and Roy aged.
one of our chatters wants to know... the favorite aspect of
your ...character, the Johnny ...Gage
RM- Well, I think it was the fact that.. uh, uh, they let me be funny. Ah, uh,
just, uh, and just turned me loose on that stuff. Uh, ah, and I had a-
I had a really good time.
I was, I was..having a ball doing it.
Host2- It certainly would be exciting. We're going to take
a moment, and
we're going to talk a little bit about some of your future projects. And
coming up, uh, next. Can you hold the line for a moment?
RM- Ok,.Yeah, absolutely.
Great. And we'll be right back with... Randy Man(d)tooth..
COMMERCIAL-- I'd like to tell you about
an attacker. And how my friend
survived. He was hit in the head by a stroke and left unable to speak.
couldn't believe that it was actually happening and didn't know what to do.
So he didn't get
help right away. And it only got worse. His left side got
weak, and he was helpless. Thankfully,
someone realized what was
going on, and called 911. If they hadn't, my friend wouldn't be here now.
If you're attacked by a stroke, call 911 immediately. The sooner you react,
the better your chance
of your survival. I'm glad that he lived, but we're still
praying and working on his recovery. So
if it ever happens to you or
someone around you, get emergency medical help, right away. Don't try
to deny.. it's an attack by a stroke. This is Wil Downing, friend, of a stroke
attack African Americans more often. Find out why. Call
1-888-4-STROKE. Or visit w w w dot stroke

is brain lost. A public service message brought to you by the American
Stroke Association and the ad council.
*Lively Carribean music and guitar*
Johnny Gage on the 1970's smash hit Emergency,
Randy Man(d)tooth unwittingly influenced the future
of EMS in the
United States. Will USAR1 have..similar effects on urban search and
rescue? I guess
we'll have to watch and find out.
RM-Well *chuckling* I certainly hope so. That's what we're going
try to strive for. Um, uh, in the seventies, ah, uh, the paramedics w-, ah,
was the new generation
in...the uh, ah, next frontier, so to speak. And uh,
um, and somebody had approached me, actually
my partner, who is the
executive producer of The Amazing Race. Um, ah, we were neighbors. And-
we still are neighbors, uh, in California, uh, , He came over and he said.
What do you think about
doing a reunion? *laughing* And, of course uh, Kevin
and I made a vow, y-you know, twenty years
ago, that we would never do
RM- ...that we would let it,
let it, ahh, uh, be...And let everybody just remember
it as it was. And, well, I said, no, absolutely
not. It would be like capturing uh
* sighing*, lightning in a bottle and he said, well, there has
to be... And I, and
I ..also said that, you know, the same thing I- I ..I had said before, that i-it
eh- there's nothing new about paramedics, there's nothing that we could.. we
bring to the table that would be, uh, uh, educational or- or entertaining.
And um, and he said,
well, there has to be SOMEthing out there th-that's new
and innovative. And- and of course, I had
still, uh, er..maintained a
relationship with the Los Angeles County Fire Department and, uh, and
a lot of the firefighters and- and, uh.. So I went and talked to them and- and
they all said
END Part Three
RM- ...new edge, th-the new frontier, is USAR, urban search and
That it's it's really going to, uh,..uh, uh, h-have a real major impact on...ah,
job description of firefighters. And, eh, o-once we looked into it, uh, we
saw that, yeah, indeed,
uh, i-i-it is gonna have a major impact. And we saw
the, uh, the training that they go through and
what they're training for. And,
uh, we decided this....would indeed make an incredible show. Uh,
would also educate, uh, eh, a-as well as entertain, just like Emergency did.
that's what we're striving for at this point.
Host2- And how close are we to seeing you?
RM- Well, you know, I don't know, I- I.. it's hard for me to discuss it
because right now we're talking
to two major, uh, networks, and I- I- I wish I
could tell you which ones they were...but I can't ,..uh,
uh, and so,
we're hoping... that, uh, January, February and March, we're going to..
to finally come, uh, come full circle and we're going to, uh,
probably know whether we're going to
get picked up, uh, to do
a pilot or not. So, it looks like January, February or March, uh, right
in there...we're going to have, uh, a major meeting. And, uh,
w-what I think the hesitancy is uh,
for, uh, the networks, is that it is so
expensive. Uh, it's an expensive show to do. Emergency was
expensive. And as we all know, that w-with everything ....going the way
of reality, because
it is so cheap to do, uh, and people do watch it. Uh,..
Host- I don't.
Uh, uh, uh, ..uh, you don't?
Host- No, I don't like reality TV. Darek likes it.
a.. well, good for you. Uh, you know, I ...because it really is
hurting scripted drama. And um, uh,
and - and like I said, o-one of the
reasons why w-we're meeting with such difficulty, is that it is
an expensive show. You have a lot of equipment. And to do, ur-urban
search and rescue, to do U-SAR,
you really do have to have major
events, um, in this day and age--that's what keeps people in front
of the television is ah, ehh t-the bigger, the better. And of course, with
that comes a.. uh, a rather
steep, uh, price tag. But, they also know
that, uh, ah, if it is, uh, uh...eh, even if it is expensive,
i-if it's a good
show, and people watch, that investment will be paid back.
Host- Now I understand...you're
back with the L.A. County..
Fire Department, as you mentioned.
RM- Umm hmm.
did ride alongs for Emergency. Can you tell us about
about your ride alongs for the U-SAR project?
RM- Uh, well, they been uh, they've been varied. Uh,..when we
first started out, uh, um, th-
the..especially with Los Angeles
County, they only had one USAR unit, and by the time they showed
up, the regular fire department who was there, already had things i-in
control. Um, and so we got
a lot of cancellations. So, we were getting
a little worried about that cause we thought, well, y-you
can't have a show
about cancellations, uh, canceled calls. And then, as they started to..
the money, and, uh, and of course, Los Angeles County is in
ah, sitting in a really great position,
where they have the money to
uh, uh.. t-to do this. They, uh, went and got, um, u-uh, three Black
helicopters..and converted them over to, uh, fire..w-what they call.. uh, the
RM-(continued)..And so now, they're acting as a support, uh, base for U-SAR.|
So, now all of the
sudden, uh, and they've increased, threefold, the, uh,
the number of uh, uh..of units that, uh, that
are responding now. So, NOW
the- the uh, the calls aren't getting canceled. They are showing up first.
And, uh, in.. of course, it's as, it's uh, it's as if the rescues they go on are
as varied as ..as
the calls we went on for Emergency. And they
go from the quite serious, to the ridiculous sometimes.
Uh, eh, i-it
there's no END to ways *laughing* people can find to get themselves
into a LOT of
trouble. Ah, and of course, after they're rescued, t-they
become r-rather humorous. Ah, but when
they're not rescued, then it becomes,
uh, it becomes a disaster. Uh, but uh, e-everybody should just
thank God that
uh, there are people who train so hard.. These are almost like the Navy
the fire department. They train so hard and s- a-and and f-for
every contingency, that when they
show up, rest assured, if they can't do
it, I don't know who can do it.
Host- Now you mention...Black
Hawk helicopters...o-on your show. You're
...I understand you'll have.. paramedics on- on helicopters?
RM- Yes. Right, um. uh. On the uh, on the Blackhawk helicopters. They always
have uh, two paramedics
on the show./
END Part Four
RM- ...itself. I mean on the- on the helicopter itself. Umm and so
a four man uh uh..team of USAR members.. uh run in. And-and and uh,
do the actual physical
rescue. And uh, a lot of them .. a good vast
majority of them, are highly technical res- rescues.
Once, uh, they're
secured, then uh, i-if,..if they're in need of paramedics, then the
were also, uh, uh.. the crewmen on the--on the Blackhawks,
come in, stabilize in the field, and then..uh,
uh.. then USAR then evacuates
them, umm uh.. either by conventional methods with ambulances, and
if they're in the position where ambulances can't get to them, then they
will transport them as well.
So it's a- it's a basically, it's a team of four
USARs, uh, USAR members. Uh, and then, uh, level
and then uh, Blackhawk helicopter uh, pilot, and then two paramedic, uh,
uh, in- in the helicopter itself.
Host- Now as the captain of this team, are you gonna be the-
hard *ss or the father figure?
RM- I'm not entirely certain that uh- I'm actually gonna
be in it.
Umm, being the executive producer and- and also one of the
writers.. uh, I- I don't
know whether there's gonna be enough
time in the day for me to actually be in this thing. Uh, e-
do do it,.. I may just actually be.. a Chief. Um, uh.. who comes
in once a week and kinda..gives
everybody h*ll or- or- or pats
everybody on the back. We haven't really decided. Our main..
main objective is to get it sold. Uh, it's not so much as a
job opportunity for me as it is, as this
passion that I have of,
uh, that I wanna see, um, uh, th- the credit given to firefighters
paramedics and medics and- and- and EMTs, uh, t- to get
it back to the forefront without doing it
in a soap op- on a soap
opera level. Uh, I want it to be a procedural show. I so totally
that uh, eh that's what, uh, America wants to watch.
I don't think too many people wanna ..know,
you know, what your
sex life is outside of the station, whether you're...a drunk and- uh,
or not you're an alcoholic and you're tryin to beat it. I -I just,
you know, that's hard for me to,
e, uh, t- to think that that's what peop-
that's why people turn ...that on. I think why people turn
on is they wanna
see something that they've never seen before. They wanna be
educated. What does
USAR do?.. Who does it? How do they train?
Why do they do it? I think that's what people wanna watch.
enough, uh, you know.. uh, family and personal angst out there
in other shows that
I don't think that, uh, it's really gonna serve
any greater purpose having- having this show y-you
talking about the ..foilbles of, uh, of the people, in their home life.
I think that they
just wanna see the.. what do they do at work? Sort
of like Law and Order. Uh, you know, you don't-
you never go home
uh, with these people and- and- and *laughing* view..their
problems at home.
Basically, they're there to catch the bad guy
and to try em and- and- and um, and put him in jail.
A lot of it,
uh, ....a lot of these procedural shows are the same way. Ah, I
me what happens. And- and I wanna know who's
doing it, uh, but uh, it's not that important to me.
Host2- Ok, comment from M.L.C.E. Good for
Randy to create a show that does that.
I agree with you a hundred
percent. It's good to see quality...as opposed to these..life's style
Just show me the technical aspect of the show.
RM- Right. Right. And- and- and show them in a-
in a true fashion
and make the characters ..real and believable.
Host2- In a question coming
from John M, in our World Without Borders
Chatroom, would Randy entertain scripts from paramedics
if the series
take-- takes off?
RM- Uh, yes. O- of course. Uh, uh, I- you know it really would
on the writers on the show and the um, uh, who's actually gonna be
the show runner. Uh,
but yes, of course, but uh, it can't be a show about
paramedics, uh, eh, e- just about paramedics.
Of course, y- you can't do
a show like this without having paramedics in it. But what it- what it
basically is going to really focus on, ..is rescue.......But, but, in answer to
your question, ...absolutely,
I would. Uh,.. i- if somebody wanted to
write uh, an unsolicted script, uh, I think uh, r- uh, I
think it would be written,
and uh, and if there's, uh, value to it, I think that it would be taken
Host- *taking a breath*
END Part Five
Host2- Well, Randy. We certainly appreciate you ...coming
and joining us this
evening, uh, and I don't share the views
of ..my partner here about reality TV shows so if uh, if
you need a partner ....*deadpan*
RM- * hysterically laughing and coughing*
The Amazing Race... You give me
RM-*laughing to tears* Well, listen, uh, uh. My-
you know, *inaudible word* as- as I speak, I was watching
it when you guys called. Uh, if
it wasn't for the fact that my
partner and my, uh, and- and one of my best friends,.. He's
executive producer on it, I wouldn't be watching it either.
I sat down and I said, ok, 'cause I knew
I was going to have
to miss um, uh, I think it was Third Watch, uh, not Third Watch.
I think I
was going to have to miss, uh, West Point. And I said
ok, I'll watch it. Uh, and I was sorta doing
it as a- uh, as a favor,
and I got hooked on it. I got hooked on, uh, on uh, The Amazing
But that's the only one I got hooked on.
Host2-*chuckling* All right, well, that.. I guess I
believe you in that. But, uh...
RM- *telling giggle*
shows are...quite addictive. You're
RM- Yes, they can be.
Host- I haven't
made it yet. I have not been addicted to it
yet so.. I'm gonna have to work with ya, Darek, and--
Host2- All right...
Host2- All right. How about this..(To Randy) Who
do you think's
RM- What? On this- on this new one?
Uh, you know, I- I don't know because I just sat down
and I just kinda sooorta got acquainted with-
and- and Screech
uh, uh, Screech will not tell me. Uh, r, uh, by the way my-my
is Amil Washington, and he's picked up the
nickname Screech over the years. And uh, and I always-
me from the- from wherever he is, on the other side of the world,
and I said, where are
you? And of course, *laugh* he can't tell me
and- and uh, I say well, give me hints. Give me hints!
RM-... and uh, he won't tell me ANYthing..so what- uh,
Usually, at the
beginning of every race, he'll have a dinner
over at his house and-- His wife.. and-and-and my wife
everything will be sitting around the table and he'll hand out
the cards.... and he'll say
ok, just by looking at their picture,
who do you think is gonna win? Well, we've been doing this
for three years... I have NEVER picked one right.
RM-..In fact, uh,
the first year *laughing*..They were the very
first ones to be eliminated. And so, I - I don't even
hazard- hazard a guess.
Host2- Now where can people find you now? You're ...
RM- (interrupting eagerly) Right now I'm doing, yeah,
right now I'm doing- I'm
in New York, and I'm doing, uh,
As The World Turns, uh, for CBS. And um, and I'll ...be
for the foreseeable future. It's really great to
be able to work, uh, uh,..you know, to be able to
as an actor and uh, and still be able to concentrate, uh,
fully on a- on a ...a show that
you're developing, uh. I
couldn't- I couldn't ask for a better role right now.
that's uh, all ...because you're a ..semi-recurring
character? Is that right? You uh..
Uh, nope. Nope. I'm one of the cast.
Host- Oh, ok. Sorry.
RM- I'm one of the cast.
Host-..I'm uh, ....I'm not up to date on my soaps.
Host2- (at the same time) He's not up to date on
RM- I'm sorry? *not hearing clearly*
Host- I said I- I guess I'm not up to
date on my soaps.
RM-*amused chortle* You know..They're just like reality
television. Be careful.
When you watch one, they get
Host- All right. Annnnd....with that.. if you'd
....like to see
USAR-1... Uh, you can.....go to....I- I understand your
