Welcome to Santa Rosa County - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: After rescuing the burn victim from The Boat's explosion, Johnny and Roy are at the back of the camper with the victim, while the victim's wife drives the camper to the clinic, but when they arrive at the clinic the camper hasn't even stopped yet, and we can see the woman's legs at the side of the camper, waiting for her cue to come rushing to the camper's rear door when her husband is brought out.

Paper Work - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, when the camera zooms in on the words 'Los Angeles County Fire Station 51' which are attached to the side of the building, we can see that this shot is actually played in reverse - notice the cars/trucks behind the station are driving backwards. Additionally, note that the real 127's rig is seen in the driveway to the right. Also interesting to notice are the upper/lower metal bars which are attached to the bricks, where we can see the bars are much longer after 'Station 51', with a space for something missing, due to the fact that is was made to hold '127' on it.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When John and Roy walk into the house with the pregnant gunshot victim, only John's wearing a helmet and he places it on the floor near the victim's husband, but in all of John's closeups (from the unusual POV looking up at him) his helmet is on the counter. Additionally, there are blue glasses upside-down on the side of the dish drainer, but in those closeups of John the glasses have vanished, and the glasses vanish again when Roy helps the husband get on his feet. Also notice that there's now a blue glass in the sink.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: In the locker room, after Chet tells Johnny that he knew all about the practical joke, when they walk to the door together there's a quick glimpse of the cameraman's reflection on the door's glass, before John tells Chet about the fictitious five dollar bill down by Mike's locker.

Quicker Than the Eye - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: There are only two ambulance attendants who take the pregnant gunshot victim to the vehicle, but en route we see two attendants in the front seat - driver and passenger, and a third attendant is in the back with John and the victim. Then when they reach Rampart, the attendant that was in the back with John has vanished and he's the one who opens the back door from the outside. As an aside, in the ambulance, when John talks to Rampart about fetal heart tones, we see the attendant is actually mucking around with the IV drip.

Other mistake: When dispatched to the fire in the theater, the companies called are Station 51, Engine 85, and Station 36, but at the scene of the fire we see Engine 9 roll up and also see firemen with 19 on their helmets. These are shots from previous episodes including 3x7, "Promotion", when Roy and John rescue the security guard at the structure fire.

Surprise - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When deciding how to rescue Cora from the middle of the cactus patch, Mike parks Engine 51 at the side of the road, beside the hill with the cactus. During the rescue there are closeups of Cora's husband standing beside Engine 51, and we see other things reflected on the engine instead of just the side of the hill. Additionally, his position in the closeups differs from where he stands in the wideshots.
