The Unlikely Heirs - S6-E3

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene of the plane that hit the building, after the explosion, when Foam 10 arrives there's a closeup of the firemen using the foam tubing, and behind the doorway one of the 'firemen' kicks the foam tubing, but notice that he's not really a fireman, he's actually a crew member who's wearing a turnout coat, though he's also wearing jeans and work boots.

Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny and Chet begin their arm wrestling, when dispatch drops the tones, there's movement at the front seats of Engine 51 where the camera is located, while Captain Stanley is at the radio base station and Mike is putting on his turnout.

Revealing mistake: After the husband and wife are pulled from the plane wreck, they're lying on the ground while Roy and Johnny are treating them. In this wide shot, which lasts about 12 seconds, have a look at Roy's face. He has no eyes or eyebrows, as part of his face has been blurred out, and when Roy moves his face it's quite bizarre to look at. Whoever edited and blurred Roy's face in this footage even matched his skin tone. This is visible on Netflix as well as the DVD, which was created in 2010 by Universal Studios, where Emergency! was filmed during its run on the air in the '70s. Don't know why this was done, but it's there.

The Unlikely Heirs - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: At the structure fire at an abandoned building, when Engine 164 arrives we see that it has distinctive markings beside the driver's side door and tire rim. When Engine 72 arrives the same markings are in the same place, revealing that it's the same engine and they used different magnetic number decals for the engine.

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to "plane that hit building," after they rescue the two aboard the plane, just before the explosion when the orange combustible drum is propelled into the air, we can see the stunt's projectile to get the drum airborne.

Continuity mistake: After Roy explains to Mrs. Evans that she shouldn't call them every time Simba runs off, when Chet finds Simba, Johnny holds him with his right hand behind the front legs and left hand under the tail, but closeup Johnny's hands are in the opposite positions.

Continuity mistake: Before Mr. Laurents walks into the station with the bag of money, Roy's holding the coffee pot with his right hand, then it's in his left hand, between shots.
