Continuity mistake: When the man who doesn't speak English is in treatment 4, there's a closeup of the Datascope 850 monitor, and then the girl points to the EKG monitoring unit behind the gurney and asks Dixie why the thing is bouncing up and down. Problem is that the Datascope 850 is used by the paramedics and it's not actually in that treatment room. The treatment room has a Zenith Travenol unit.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the attempted suicide, the dispatcher states that he's in apartment 2A, and when Roy and John arrive at the scene the police officer also says he's in apartment 2A, but when they get to the second floor they pass apt 2A and go to the apartment at the end of the hall.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Station 51 responds to the traffic accident, after Captain Stanley hands Johnny the Ajax tool, in the closeup it's obvious that the hands are not really Johnny's. Then there's another shot of the real Johnny, but once he removes his goggles, interestingly it's the stunt double who's in the following shots by the car, even when Johnny cuts himself, it's the stunt double.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, in the closeup shot of Chet, Roy, and Johnny as they're talking about their trip, we can see the Land Rover hood's base plate where the vehicle's spare tire is supposed to be mounted, but the tire isn't there because of the mounted camera facing the actors in the vehicle. In other shots the spare tire is properly mounted on the Land Rover's hood.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Engine 51 and Squad 51 first roll in during the school fire, we see the burning building has a flat roof. After Johnny and Roy have rescued the unconscious boy from the classroom, there is a closeup of two firemen standing on a slanted, tiled roof with a hose, which is from episode 3x2, "The Old Engine", just before 17's Captain Harmell falls through the warehouse roof.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are at the construction site with the guy who wants to jump, before Roy walks over to him we see the pompier belt around Johnny's waist has the carabiner hook to his left and the double tongue buckles to his right. Then when Captain Stanley tells Johnny to try and get to the guy from the other side, Johnny's belt is now around his waist the opposite way. In the following shots his life belt flips around a couple more times. Note that their pompier belts have at one side double leather straps which are the two tongue buckles, and the other side has a single strap of leather for the attached carabiner hook.Super Grover
Character mistake: When Dixie tells Gail to set up in treatment 1, Brackett tells them they can't use treatment 1 because they have a skull fracture coming in, then Brackett and Early head down the hallway to treatment 1, and that skull fracture, Skyle Tyler, has already been lying there being examined by Morton.Super Grover
Other mistake: When Johnny contacts Rampart about the elderly man who was under a fallen bookcase, the fourth button (out of five) is depressed to record the conversation on the tape machine. However, in episode 2x5, "Peace Pipe", Brackett presses the third and fifth, when Squad 51 is at the scene of the drunk driver's accident, and in 2x10, "Dinner Date", Dixie presses the second button to record, when Squad 51 is with the little girl whose arm is stuck in the pool drain.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 and then Engine 51 are dispatched to the hotel fire, before going in Johnny's SCBA cylinder has a large arrow sticker and Roy's has a large red sticker, but once inside Roy's air cylinder goes back and forth from having an arrow sticker to the red sticker. Then in a few moments, when Marco and Chet go in with the stokes, both of their air cylinders are tall, flat-top and devoid of stickers, but inside their SCBA cylinders are short, round-top and keep switching from having either an arrow or large red stickers.Super Grover
Other mistake: At the start of shift, after Roy digs into Johnny for calling Joanne, Station 51 is dispatched to the children lost in the flooding storm drain and time out is 08:32. Then at the scene, the officer says that they got a report about two missing boys two hours earlier, and that a witness saw teenagers pull up the manhole cover just before noon, and another witnessed the two boys playing around the open manhole. So what time is it supposed to be - early in the morning or some time in the afternoon? The times just don't sync.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Treatment 4 is beside the nurses' station, as seen when Roy and John are with Debbie's parents, while the drunk driver is being wheeled through the double doors. Later, when Brackett suspects that Debbie's father is with the drunk, as he rushes to the drunk's room he goes through the double doors to get to the room, but while Brackett's in the room speaking to Debbie's father we can see treatment 4's door right behind Brackett, even though they're supposed to be in a completely different area.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When the guys of Station 51 are dealing with the rescue of the doctor from the radioactive lab, Johnny's, Chet's, and Marco's SCBA cylinders change during this scene while they're all wearing them. Differences such as tall, slim, with a flat top vs short, wide, with a rounded top, and also the writing on the tanks. Marco's even changes between shots, when he exits the lab's doorway.Super Grover
