Continuity mistake: Before being shot at, when Gage and DeSoto climb up to the scaffolding, Gage lifts the man's head to rest on the scaffolding and stays that way in each of the following close-ups, but in the following four wideshots his head still hangs over the side.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: En route to the pick-up truck hanging from the freeway on-ramp, there is a flipped shot of Engine 51 and Squad 51 as they drive under the freeway before the camera pans in towards the car. Some giveaways are the reversed '51' on Engine 51 and the reversed 'road construction ahead' sign.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Roy gets off the phone and heads to the squad, Johnny follows him wanting to know who he was talking to, and after Roy tosses Johnny a rag to help wipe down the squad, we hear the dispatcher ask, "Foam 27, what is your location?" but subtitles read, "Phone 27, what is your location?"Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When the guy (Michael Conrad) with the gunshot wound is being wheeled out of the treatment room there is nothing on his face, but in the shot from the hallway as they exit the room suddenly he has a tube inserted into his nostril with tape holding it in place.Super Grover
Other mistake: At the chemical plant, when Captain Stanley gets to the roof and realizes they have to shut off the main valve, over the HT he says, "Engine 8, HT 51, shut off the power..., Engine 15 supply Truck 8...," but the weird subtitles read, "Engine 80, Team 51, shut off the power..., Engine 15, Supply Truck 80..." Then a bit later Captain Stanley tells Mike over the HT, "Engine 51, HT 51, charge the line," but the subtitles read, "Engine 51, Team 51, start your line." Then as soon as Mike charges the line, Captain Stanley tells Roy and Chet, "Okay, full fog, full fog...," but again the weird subtitles read, "Okay, hold strong, hold strong."Super Grover
Continuity mistake: At the nurses' station, after Roy tells Brice that Brightweiser will be okay the two of them walk to receiving carrying their gear, with Roy holding the Biophone and defibrillator, but as they head through the doors both the Biophone and defibrillator have each turned around in Roy's hands, and now face the opposite way.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After the man with trichloroethylene poisoning is hosed down and loaded onto the ambulance, while Roy's on the Biophone with Rampart, John's uniform jacket is pulled open with his hands on his hips, and we can see the outline of his mic transmitter in his shirt pocket with the wires coming out of the pocket.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: During the rescue at the construction accident, when the man with the back injury is hanging from his line and is lowered after Roy untangles the block, we can see that in addition to the rope wrapped around the man there's wire and support that go under the man's jumpsuit. The wire/support are gone once he's lying on the balcony and they remove the rope.Super Grover
Other mistake: When the electrocution victim is loaded onto the ambulance, we can see there's a large piece of rectangular material adhered to the ambulance back door, with the name Mayfair printed on it. Then when the ambulance arrives at Rampart, the word Mayfair is now huge on that back door and the "M" is even over the door lock.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After the cropduster crashes, when Roy and Johnny pull the pilot out of the overturned aircraft and begin working on him, Johnny's medical holster with penlight, forceps and scissor is clipped at his right hip and the other holster's at his left hip, but when Johnny shouts to Chet about giving the victim oxygen, Johnny's holsters have switched sides.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny jumps from the third floor ledge onto the lifenet, in the shot of his actual jump we can see a cameraman wearing jeans at the bottom left corner of the screen, who's holding a handheld camera shooting footage while lying on the street. The angle of that footage can be seen just as Captain Stanley shouts, "Gage, you first," and also when they walk the lifenet over to their left, before Cap shouts, "Okay, Roy!"Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: At the structure fire, right after Captain Stanley and Roy throw the rope down to Johnny and the boy, and Cap tells Marco to use fog, in the next overhead shot as the guys use the axe on the partition fire, at the right side of the screen we can see a crew member wearing a short sleeve grey T-shirt, who's standing at the stairway landing right outside the door, as he's using the FX smoke/fog machine which is blowing smoke through the doorway.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When the guy is stuck in the tree after his hang gliding accident, John ties the rope around the branch and begins to saw the branch while Roy uses that rope to slowly lower the branch. The problem is that just as the branch nears the ground, we can see the production crew's thin double lines securing the branch at the top right of the screen, and then those lines vanish when Roy joins John.Super Grover
