Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the woman whose hair is caught in the meat grinder, time out is 12:34, and right after that quick run they stop by Rampart.

Then the next run Squad 51 responds to is the woman caught in the mixer, and the time out is 15:54.

Seance - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: During the rescue of the man trapped in the submerged car, when 110's Captain hands John and Roy (in the water) the special cave-in gear's air hose, then when he opens the O2 valve and also when he revs up the jaws, we see that the boat's port side has a taught line tying it off at the stern in the closeups (seen from the boat's deck) to prevent it moving, but in the long shots there is no line.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: During the rescue of the two boys on the tower, a few shots after Chet starts climbing the stairs, there's a long shot looking up at Roy and John, and we can see Chet at the last set of stairs at the bottom left of the screen, and a few shots later from the same long angle, we see Chet reach the top. However, quite a few shots later, after the old man comments about job security, we see Chet again, but he's nowhere near the top yet.

Syndrome - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy must climb the tower to rescue the two boys, they both buckle the pompier belts around their waists with the large carabiner hooks at their left sides and walk towards the tower, but in the next shot Johnny's belt is on the opposite way, at his right, as they start to climb the stairs. Then the life belt flips back to the way it was originally.

The Professor - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are at the construction site with the guy who wants to jump, before Roy walks over to him we see the pompier belt around Johnny's waist has the carabiner hook to his left and the double tongue buckles to his right. Then when Captain Stanley tells Johnny to try and get to the guy from the other side, Johnny's belt is now around his waist the opposite way. In the following shots his life belt flips around a couple more times. Note that their pompier belts have at one side double leather straps which are the two tongue buckles, and the other side has a single strap of leather for the attached carabiner hook.

School Days - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Johnny contacts Rampart about the elderly man who was under a fallen bookcase, the fourth button (out of five) is depressed to record the conversation on the tape machine. However, in episode 2x5, "Peace Pipe", Brackett presses the third and fifth, when Squad 51 is at the scene of the drunk driver's accident, and in 2x10, "Dinner Date", Dixie presses the second button to record, when Squad 51 is with the little girl whose arm is stuck in the pool drain.

Drivers - S2-E13

Other mistake: During the structure fire at the Atlas Hotel, when Roy and John are with the unconscious man being given proper CPR by civilians, it is too painfully apparent that the man giving rescue breaths is just leaning over the man's face, nowhere near the victim's mouth, particularly after Marco and Chet drop off the stokes.

Drivers - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 and then Engine 51 are dispatched to the hotel fire, before going in Johnny's SCBA cylinder has a large arrow sticker and Roy's has a large red sticker, but once inside Roy's air cylinder goes back and forth from having an arrow sticker to the red sticker. Then in a few moments, when Marco and Chet go in with the stokes, both of their air cylinders are tall, flat-top and devoid of stickers, but inside their SCBA cylinders are short, round-top and keep switching from having either an arrow or large red stickers.
