Visible crew/equipment: After Roy and Johnny rescue the worker in the midst of the chemical leak, when Captain Stanley asks the Chief over the HT to send the ambulance, two crew members are seen behind him. When the victim is pulled across the lifeline, as he reaches the engine a crew member, with black hair wearing a white shirt, is seen standing behind the engine. Then, when Johnny hauls himself across the lifeline, just as he reaches the engine we see a crew member, with black hair wearing a white shirt (likely same one as earlier), who arches up then ducks back down behind the engine.

Other mistake: After Johnny and Roy are seen carrying the semi-conscious worker during the chemical leak, Captain Stanley tells Mike to get the life gun, and tells Chet to secure a lifeline, then before he mentions getting the guys from the catwalk via the lifeline, we hear Captain Stanley tell the Battalion Chief (into his handie-talkie), "Battalion 14, Engine 41," even though he's Engine 51, not 41. Additionally, when Cap tells Chet about the lifeline, two firemen behind Chet are wearing helmets with no company numbers on them.
