RANDOLPH MANTOOTH’s portrayal of Firefighter/Paramedic Johnny Gage on NBC’s
ground breaking series “Emergency!” left an indelible mark on the
history of modern Fire Service and EMS. Of the millions who grew up watching the
show in the 1970s, many discovered their life’s calling and became firefighters,
paramedics, ER nurses and ER doctors. Randy has stayed connected to firefighters
and paramedics in the years since through lifelong friendships as well as
through professional speaking engagements. In recent years, Randy has embarked
on a personal mission to reach out to firefighters to increase their awareness
of on the job health risks, particularly those risks relating to exposure to CO
-- carbon monoxide -- a deadly gas that almost claimed his own life while
shooting the show.
