Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the construction site, when Roy and Johnny walk across the tower crane's main jib, there's a shot of the entire top of the crane, and we can see the cameraman at the tower peak, who is shooting the footage of the stunt guys from the overhead angle. He wasn't in the previous long shot of the crane. This does not refer to the officer who is standing on the main jib.

Mascot - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene of Paula's traffic accident, after the ambulance leaves with Johnny and Paula inside, Roy pushes the back of the driver's seat forward revealing Bonnie in the back seat. When it cuts to the next shot, the reflection of a crew member leaning forward is visible in the car's window, and the mic is also visible on the left. Additionally, Johnny is visible in the background, even though he just left in the ambulance with the victim, as the actor who portrays him, Randolph Mantooth, is casually leaning on a sign post waiting around during the location shoot.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Johnny learns of his last rescue's death, when he enters the hallway the treatment room beside the nurses' station is treatment 4, but when Brackett and Early pass the nurses' station to go save a rabbit from a sousaphone, it's treatment 2 that's beside the nurses' station. Then, as soon as Brackett and Early enter their door, in the next shot as Dix speaks to the officer, it's treatment 5 beside the nurses' station.

The Wedsworth-Townsend Act - S1-E1

Other mistake: When the electrocution victim is loaded onto the ambulance, we can see there's a large piece of rectangular material adhered to the ambulance back door, with the name Mayfair printed on it. Then when the ambulance arrives at Rampart, the word Mayfair is now huge on that back door and the "M" is even over the door lock.

Cook's Tour - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to the 'electrocution in a house', while Johnny goes to the garage to turn off the power, Roy waits at the doorway to go inside to the victim. In this interior shot facing the doorway, we see what is supposed to be the brick chimney at the side of the house next door, and the top of that set is visible. Plus the fact that this chimney is not nearly as deep as the one they passed by in the exterior shot.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?

Mistakes

When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.
