Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Visible crew/equipment: At World Picture Corp, after the rescue of the guy with the broken clavicle trapped up on the joists, Morton tells Roy to transport the patient as soon as possible. It cuts to a shot of Squad 51 following the ambulance to ER receiving, and as they drive through the underpass, it's from the POV of inside the squad. Some location lighting becomes visible on the right side, and the reflection of the cameraman's legs are visible on the windshield, as he's seated in the passenger seat. We know that one of the paramedics is in the ambulance, so there should only be a driver in the squad.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the apartment complex fire, when Truck 82 raises its ladder, we can see the second floor balcony behind the rig, and there is a crew member wearing a long sleeved blue shirt and white hat, standing in front of the corner apartment, where there should be smoke pouring out, but there is none. The reflection of the cameraman/crew member wearing a white hat also becomes visible in Truck 82's wing mirror.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: During the fire at the apartment complex, when John and Roy go into the apartment to rescue the woman, they throw a coat over her, but then the explosion occurs knocking John and the woman unconscious. When Roy puts her over his shoulder and starts walking out the coat is not over her, but when he gets to the balcony she's covered by the coat, yet when the Pasadena fireman goes back for John, that coat is still lying on the floor.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to the 'plane crash into a structure', when Engine 51 pulls over to lay the dual lines at the hydrant, we can see up the block on the left, the back side of the apartment complex where they are headed, and most of the back windows are boarded up. The following scene takes place at the front doors of those apartments, where people supposedly live. The show used some real locations (not just Universal's sets) where there had been real fires, to film carefully controlled fire scenes.

Captain Stanley is still at the radio base station and Mike hasn't opened the door yet.

Revealing mistake: At the gas station with the broken pump nozzle, Captain Stanley and the station attendant head to the garage area to see the main shut-off circuit box, which is located at the far right corner of the garage, but in the next shot, we can see the attendant's reflection behind Roy, and he's standing somewhere else off camera, not where he's supposed to be in the next shot with Captain Stanley.
