Other mistake: After Johnny gets off the phone with Tom Wheeler, and starts complaining about him while the guys are preparing lunch, there are two milk containers on the table which have orange tape covering the brand names.

Nurse's Wild - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: At the liquor store, when Roy is seeing to the store owner with chest pains, Roy snaps a black headed lead onto the disc, but in the man's closeup it's a white headed lead. Then when Brackett orders countershock, the lead is back to black.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the airport, when Roy is being told about young Frankie flying the airplane because his father had a heart attack, we see that Roy's wearing his uniform shoes, but in the shot of Roy following the airport employee while they're running into the building, Roy (perhaps his double) is wearing tan work boots. The uniform shoes are back when Roy uses the grounded plane's radio mic.

Botulism - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to "possible heart case" when Roy and Johnny walk into the house, we can see in the hallway and there's a bureau against the wall, but when they leave that bureau is gone and now there's a painting on the wall which we should have seen in the earlier shot, but it wasn't there.

Botulism - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: During the rescue at the construction accident, when the man with the back injury is hanging from his line and is lowered after Roy untangles the block, we can see that in addition to the rope wrapped around the man there's wire and support that go under the man's jumpsuit. The wire/support are gone once he's lying on the balcony and they remove the rope.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Brackett and Early walk into the treatment room with the boy whose rabbit is stuck inside a sousaphone, they head into the treatment room opposite the receiving entrance, on the same side as the nurses' station. However, after the rabbit's rescued, when Dixie opens the door so the boy can leave the room we can see it faces the wall and treatment room beside the nurses' station. I would provide treatment room numbers, but the room numbers keep changing in this episode.

Emergency! (1972)

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: At the very start, as the camera moves through Station 10, the Battalion Chief's vehicle is parked beside the fire pole, but when the tones drop and everyone rushes to the rigs, the Chief's car is now parked much further up, closer to the apparatus bay door.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the very start, when the camera moves through Station 10 while the guys are asleep upstairs, we see one of the engines has license plate E111196, but en route there's a closeup of Rescue 10 and its license plate is also E111196.

Emergency! (1972)

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start, while Station 10 is en route to the fire, there's a closeup of the front of Truck 10 (with aerial ladder) and the large round sticker with the company number 10 imprinted on it can be seen affixed to the rig's surface, even over its two bars of chrome trim. Then at the incident the large sticker with their company number affixed to the front has shrunk significantly, now it's not covering the chrome trim.

Emergency! (1972)

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the start we see that Station 10 has one rig with an aerial ladder and two engines. While Station 10 is en route to the fire, there's a closeup of Truck 10 (ladder) and its license plate reads E111074, yet when they're on scene Truck 10's license plate reads E111083.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: On scene at the factory fire, soon after we hear Battalion 14 over the HT saying, "Engine 210... Pump Engine 10's three-and-a-half from the hydrant..." there's a closeup of firemen behind one of 10's engines and we can see part of its license plate with 094, but none of 10's rigs have those numbers on their plates.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Squad 10 is dispatched to "possible electrocution," just as the apparatus bay door opens and the squad rolls out, we can see a police officer holding back traffic for the filming of this shot.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: On scene at the "possible electrocution", when John is on the raised snorkel waiting for the power to be cut, we hear the worker who is up on the utility pole whistling to grab his co-worker's attention, but the subtitles read that it's John who whistles.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: When the electrocution victim is loaded onto the ambulance, we can see there's a large piece of rectangular material adhered to the ambulance back door, with the name Mayfair printed on it. Then when the ambulance arrives at Rampart, the word Mayfair is now huge on that back door and the "M" is even over the door lock.

Inferno - S3-E21

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are at base camp during the fire, they're dispatched to the incident at Jawbone Canyon. While en route, Battalion 5 orders Engine 51 to approach from the north, and we hear Captain Stanley respond, "Engine 51, 10-4," but it's odd that the subtitles read that Johnny is the one who responds. Later, after Tanker 44 tanks 51, Chet says, "Cap, we've got a charged line," but the weird subtitles read, "Captain's going to throw us a line."

Understanding - S3-E13

Other mistake: When they're trying to identify the address of the attempted suicide, Engine 51 stops and is standing by at 223 Street and Ridgely, while the squad drives elsewhere, and when Squad 51 stops it's standing by at 218 Street and Carson. However, when they're dispatched we see that the rigs are actually pulling away from the same corner but facing opposite directions, note the area and background. Then when Johnny and Roy put on their turnouts, in the next shot of Engine 51 it's now driving towards the camera in the opposite direction on the same street they had pulled away from.
