[show]The Netflix version of "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act" is a scrambled remake of the original where the opening and closing scenes of the pilot were filmed later and try to depict a flashback. In the opening flashback prelude, Johnny erroneously refers to his old Station as "the 8s," when it is patently obvious from the actual show Gage's old Station was 10s. He suggests a shortcut past the 10s during the show to save time in a run, further calling attention to the error.
- The series is popularly credited for encouraging the widespread adoption of paramedic programs across North America.
- The portable radio phone that the paramedic team uses to communicate with Rampart Hospital in the field is a Biophone 3502 radio.
