The Old Engine - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: During the structure fire, when Captain Stanley uses the HT and says "Engine 17, you can pump to Engine 51," in the next shot a second cameraman carrying a handheld camera can be seen between Engine 17 and Engine 9, as he's shooting footage. He's visible again three shots later, standing beside Engine 17, and once again right after they lower the ladder through the hole in the roof.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: At the structure fire, when Squad 51 stops at the hydrant to lay the dual lines, as Engine 51 drives past the squad, the reflections of array lighting and the reflector screen are briefly visible. Then when Engine 51 rolls up to the fire, as Captain Stanley tells dispatch to send a second alarm and approach from the west, we can see the reflection of a crew member wearing a long sleeved white shirt and dark slacks, in the window behind Captain Stanley. He's still visible when Squad 51 pulls up alongside Engine 51, and also when Cap tells Engine 9 to lay duals.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: At the structure fire, when Engine 9 and Engine 17 roll up, we can see the large, red, rectangular vinyl material that is adhered to the front of the engines, with their company numbers printed on it. Additionally, the red vinyl material adhered to the top of 9's and 17's cabs, which cover their real company numbers, flap up in the wind.

Audio problem: When Roy and Johnny are with Dixie in the ER, after all the bikers' violence, Squad 51 is dispatched to 'man possibly trapped' and when we hear Johnny respond, "Squad 51, affirmative," his mouth does not say the word "affirmative", he says something else.

Audit - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny pull into the parking space near the car with the toddler inside, as the camera moves we see its moving reflection on the side of the car. Then when the woman says "Certainly something's wrong with him, he's unconscious," as the camera pulls back we can see its reflection in the car window. We can also see the reflection of the large location lighting when Johnny tries to unlock the door with a wire hanger.
