Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Emergency: Survival on Charter No. 220 was a special 2-part, 2-hour installment of the weekly TV series Emergency. The emphasis is on paramedics Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and DeSoto (Kevin Tighe), who spring to action when a small private plane collides with a chartered jetliner. The enormity of the disaster requires Gage and DeSoto to work in tandem with medical personnel from Ramparts Hospital, as well as a team of municipal firefighters. Those familiar with Emergency should be able to determine that from this slim plot premise will blossom a multitude of major crises and minor irritations. Survival on Charter #220 was originally telecast on March 25, 1978.
