Emergency! mistake picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In the interior shots of Station 51 (the studio set), when facing the rear apparatus bay door, the right wall has a door to Captain Stanley's office, a very large map, the radio receiver base station where they respond to dispatch, the kitchen doorway, and a double-door closet, that's it. However, when Station 51 is shown in the exterior shots (the real Station 127 aka 51), as either the engine or squad exits when the apparatus bay door is up, we see that the right wall has many more doors on that wall. Additionally, the opposite wall on the set has only two doors - one to locker room/bathroom, and one to the dorm, however at the real 127's, that wall has three doors - two of them are to the dorm.

Other mistake: In many episodes where the Engine is going out on a run, Mike Stoker, the engine driver looks at the big map on the wall and finds the location of the incident even before the dispatcher voice has said what the location is.

Other mistake: On Emergency! there's a noticeable lack of blood (not that it's a bad thing), even on the medical disposable gloves, during numerous scenes such as when a victim has arterial bleeding from carotid, brachial, and femoral arteries, or during the surgical procedures, and the labor/delivery scenes.

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'.
