The Tycoons - S5-E23

Continuity mistake: When the patient with the heart wound is brought to the ER, he's wheeled into treatment 2, which has a window on its door, and is on the side of the hallway with the yellow line closest to it. Later we see treatment 1 twice, when Vince brings in the burglary suspect with a bullet in his leg, and also when John and Roy rush the baby to the ER. They used the same room as treatment 1 and treatment 2, but there are just two treatment rooms on that side of the hallway and only one of them has a window on its door - the one that's opposite the nurses' station, treatment 1.

Trivia: Throughout the run of the series, when there's a closeup of Squad 51's Motorola two-way radio unit, notice the spelling mistake on the self-adhesive label that reads "Resue Unit No. 51."

Drivers - S2-E13

Audio problem: When Roy and John are with the unconscious man during the fire at the Atlas Hotel, Chet and Marco bring the stokes and Chet tells them that the fire is getting worse, and when Roy responds, "If we move him now we're gonna lose him," we see that Roy continues talking as Chet listens to him, but we hear nothing.

Revealing mistake: At the site of the hang gliding accident, just after the glider falls, in the long shot when Johnny and Chet pull the unconscious victim higher on the cliff, the victim is supposed to be unconscious, yet we see him use his right leg to push himself higher up to help John and Chet pull him up.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, we see the squad and engine pull back into the station, and one of the guys - it would be either Marco or Chet, is standing on the engine's tailboard motioning to Mike, who is driving backwards, but in the next shot both Marco and Chet are seated in their jumpseats as Engine 51 comes to a stop.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: At the structure fire, when Roy and Johnny rescue the man in room 22 by breaking the window, the door to room A is right beside them and we can see the axe mark on the door and the damage to the wall. When Johnny and Roy go back through the window to look for the missing Dr. Bennis, as Johnny uses the K-12, the door to room A now has many more axe marks and the damaged wall is far less damaged.

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Character mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the fighting couple the first time timeout is 10:12, and the second call to that house timeout is 12:37. When Roy and John are there the first time, it's for no more than five minutes. Then when they're there the second time, Roy says "Please folks, we just went through this less than an hour ago," though it was over two hours when they left the fighting couple the first time.

Other mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to 'man with head injury' which is the fighting couple, the dispatcher says "10763 Riverton, cross street Valleyheart Drive," but when they arrive the two street signs at the intersection read "Valleyheart Drive 10700" and "Riverton Ave 4000." The house number is 10763, so the dispatcher should have said, "10763 Valleyheart Drive, cross street Riverton."

Fair Fight - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are in the ER after the cave-in rescue, while they're talking to Dixie and Brackett, we can see how long Johnny's hair is. After they get back to the station, when the guys decide to name the dog Henry, there's a closeup of Johnny and now his hair is much shorter and even layered at the sides. Additionally, the dirty areas on his shirt change.
