All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the 'man trapped between two buildings', Roy is not wearing a watch when he and John head out on the lines between the buildings and also when they get back on the roof, but during the actual rescue while on the lines, both stunt guys are wearing watches on their wrists.

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to 'man down' at Hotel Potter, the address is given as 11876 Fishburn, between MacArthur and West 7th, but when the squad and engine are in front of the building, the corner street signs read Trenton and Parkview.

Show generally

Other mistake: There are two specific pieces of stock footage used from season 3 onward, when the camera faces the fire station, it shows either just Squad 51, or both Squad 51 and Engine 51 pulling out of the apparatus bay, then turning left (viewer's right) onto E 223rd St, and the real Station 127's Truck 127 can be seen parked in the side driveway. Examples are: In season 6, "The Exam", when Squad 51 responds to Molly's phone call, and in "Hypochondri-Cap", when Station 51 is dispatched to an 'unconscious female in a car'.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Other mistake: After Station 51 arrives at the structure fire, Captain Stanley tells Mike to get water to their lines (charging the two lines) and then mule the supply line back to the hydrant. When Marco and Chet get the two lines, they head to the house with Captain Stanley and start hosing the fire down with charged lines. A few shots later, we see Mike going to the back of Engine 51, and the two lines that Chet, Marco, and Cap have been using are flat and not even charged yet.

Alley Cat - S3-E3

Character mistake: After the cat has her kittens, when Squad 51 is dispatched to the 'man trapped in boating accident', we hear Captain Stanley respond, "Station 51, KMG365," even though his response should have been, "Squad 51, KMG365," since it's only John and Roy that were dispatched, not the entire station.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Other mistake: After the Battalion Chief tells Squad 51 to go to the elevator shaft, when Roy, Johnny and Jason enter the building, the subtitles read that Captain Stanley says "Here, the elevator, it's jammed," when in fact it's the Battalion Chief who says that - Captain Stanley is not even with them. Additionally, Johnny asks, "Is somebody in here, Cap?" even though he's addressing the Battalion Chief, not Captain Stanley. Then it's Roy who asks for the oxygen, but subtitles read that Johnny asks for it.

Continuity mistake: At the station, after Johnny has searched through a bunch of papers for the receipt for $8.42, when he gathers them up a yellow paper falls to the floor at his feet, just before Roy suggests putting them in alphabetical order.
