Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are with the boy whose head is trapped in the window under the porch, the guys use the Porta-Power to lift the top jamb. When the child gets his head out and his mom tells him to come out from under the porch, the top jamb is straight and level, but when the boy walks away with his mom, the top jamb has lifted itself again.

Continuity mistake: During the structure fire, when Roy walks into the burning house his SCBA cylinder has a large arrow sticker on it, but when he's in the house searching for the boy it's a completely different tank with two red stickers, then when Roy goes upstairs it's back to the original tank.

Other mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire in the middle of the night, once they arrive at the burning house, one of the first shots shows a crowd of bystanders, many in their robes. That footage is from season 1, the pilot episode "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act", during the factory fire at the start of that episode.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Character mistake: When Roy and Johnny are waiting outside the radioactive lab, Roy sends Marco and Mike to replace Chet and the captain. When Chet and the captain come out, the captain points to Chet and then points up the hallway, while he says "All right, take off you two," even though it's only Chet who's heading outside to be decontaminated, and he could not have meant, "All right, take off you too," for the same reason.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Other mistake: When 51's guys are watching the Adam-12 episode on TV, on that show just after Reed is knocked out by one of the hitmen, the hitman says "Nate would've blown his stack if I'd let you go," (refers to the hitman's partner, Nate), but Emergency!'s subtitles read, "Pete would've blown his stack...," (Pete is Jim Reed's partner) Then a few moments later the hitman Nate yells, "I wanna talk a deal," but subtitles read, "I wanna talk to Neil," and there isn't even anyone named Neil.

Brushfire - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to the motorcycle accident, there are wide shots of the squad driving through the hills, then in the closeups of Roy and John, the squad shakes from side to side to mimic driving, but we can see that the surrounding rocky area behind the squad (matte painting) does not actually change at all.

Mascot - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the heart attack, when Roy opens the apparatus bay door John and Bonnie run underneath, and we can see that Engine 51 is not parked in the bay, but in the exterior shot of the squad pulling out the engine is in the bay.
