Visible crew/equipment: As the camera pans to the left at the start of this episode, while everyone is asleep in the dorm upstairs, a crew member standing near the production's lighting equipment is visible between Squad 10 and the wall. Also note that the lighting equipment is gone when the guys are dispatched.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Station 10 is dispatched to the factory fire, a few shots after the closeup of 105's door that reads "fire dept deluge", there's an overhead long shot of the men using the hoses against the fires in the doorways, and a cameraman wearing blue, holding a handheld camera, is visible sitting at the back of a squad.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: Just after Herbert leaves the station in the morning, dispatch sounds the alarms, and when Roy and John are in the squad while the dispatcher begins talking, there are nice reflections of the camera, reflector screen (in the background), and crew members/cameraman who move around, that are visible on the surface of the spotlight. Additionally, the shadow of the boom/mic is perfectly visible on the windshield as it moves down.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 arrives at the salvage yard's fire, Johnny gets out of the squad, and when he puts on his turnout coat as the camera zooms out, a dark haired crew member wearing a short sleeve white shirt is visible at the lower right corner of the screen.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When all the guys are on site of an overturned tractor trailer, Captain Stanley says "Let's cool off that cab." In the next closeup of Stoker spinning a gear, the reflection of the cameraman (with mustache and hat) holding a handheld camera is visible on the engine's red surface.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: At the site of the major chemical leak, after Johnny falls from the pipes and Roy lifts him up, a couple of shots later there is a medium shot of one of 105's guys on Deluge 105 pumping out water, and we can see a cameraman (filming Deluge 105's closeups that we see during this scene) holding a handheld on the right of the screen, behind the pillar.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 leaves Rampart, in the first interior shot facing Roy as John says, "Yeah, I'll tell ya, when it hits ya... Boy when I met Valerie it hit me," through the back window we can see movement at the back of the squad. But in the shot facing Roy when John says, "So that's that... That's exactly how it is," through that back window we can actually see a crew member's face (sideways), who has a mustache, right behind John's head, as he's riding on the back of the moving squad. It's so funny, have a look.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: During the factory fire, the Battalion Chief tells dispatch over the HT, "Fire through the roof, send me a third alarm," then in the next shot we see Engine 36 arrive, and when the engine comes to a full stop we can see two tripod lighting rigs and stacked film canisters, at the right of the screen.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Chet, Roy, and Johnny are with the mother and child at the scene of the vehicle accident, the reflections of location set array lights, four side-by-side reflector screens with some crew members holding them and the camera/cameraman are all visible in the window and surface of the funeral home hearse, as it arrives and then pulls to the side of the road.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Captain Stanley are rescuing the people trapped inside Olive View Hospital, they are wearing distinctively marked SCBA tanks on their backs, and when all three firemen exit the doorway, Cap is wearing an entirely different tank, and the tanks that Johnny and Roy are wearing have been switched. Then when Johnny jumps off Engine 82, his tank differs again, and when he walks over to the Battalion Chief it's changed yet again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Johnny is writing the 'for sale' sign about his Land Rover, in the wide shot the two phone numbers begin with "853" and "352", but in the closeup a piece of paper has been glued over the phone numbers, and the new numbers now begin with "321" and "749."Super Grover
