  • Season 7 Episode 11: The Convention (Part 1)

  • When the Engines/Snorkel leave the station (Novato St 4), they turn left. In actuality, the area they responded to would have been a right turn out of the station. The directors apparently did not like the right turn option.

  • Season 7 Episode 5: What's a Nice Girl Like Y...

  • Continuity error:  Gage and Desoto go from being firefighter/paramedics in April 78 to Captains in December 78 (what happened to engineer?) back to paramedic/firefighter/paramedics in June 79.  And since we've been told several times that they can't be both firefighter/paramedics and a higher rank such as engineer or captain at the same time, this sequence doesn't make much sense.

  • Continuity Error: Johnny and Roy act as if they've never seen a female paramedic before, but in the Season 5 episode "The Indirect Method", they were assigned a female trainee who ended up saving Roy's life after he was electrocuted during a rescue.

  • Season 7 Episode 4: Greatest Rescues of Emerg...

  • Continuity Error: The second person to receive his captain's badge at the beginning of the movie is named Craig Brice, which was the name of the paramedic portrayed by actor James G. Richardson who got on Roy and Johnny's nerves in three separate episodes during the final season of the series.  However, the Craig Brice who appears only briefly to accept the badge is African-American.

  • There are only three people with original speaking lines the entire movie: Kevin Tighe, Randolph Mantooth, and Fire Chief Richard Houts.

  • Goof: While introducing the clip from Season 2 where Johnny passes out attempting to rescue a man from scaffolding, Roy says Johnny "had the flu and didn't even know it." The actual story line from that episode involved a rare virus contracted from a pet monkey, which killed another firefighter and nearly killed Johnny as well as Dr. Brackett and the money's owner.


     

  • Following the ceremony in which Chief Richard Houts awards Roy and Johnny (among others) their badges, the rest of the movie takes place on the patio outside of headquarters, where Roy and Johnny reminisce, introducing clips from the series.

  • Season 7 Episode 1: The Steel Inferno

  • The trivia statement above is wrong.  No footage is used from that movie.   All exterior shots of the building were taken at the Oppenheimer Tower on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles.   They simply put a smoke machine on the roof and took pictures up the side of the building.  Note that you never seen flames coming out the building just smoke from the roof.   They had a Coast Guard Helicopter fly over the building, you never saw it land, and they filmed some shots in the Lobby,  on the streets outside of the building,  and a parking garage.   The rest was filmed on sets built for the purpose or used existing Rampart Hospital sets. Elevator shaft scene is filmed on a generic elevator shaft that I think is on Universal Studios lot.  Used in lots of movies and TV shows when they need a shaft to film in.  They also filmed on location at Station 110 at Marina Del Ray.


     

  • Several external building shots of the skyscraper on fire were directly recycled from the Irwin Allen movie The Towering Inferno.

  • Season 6 Episode 24: All Night Long

  • This episode marked the final appearances of Tim Donnelly, Michael Norell, Marco Lopez, and Mike Stoker in the series.

  • Season 6 Episode 22: Upward and Onward

  • Tom Williams, who appears as the loud-mouthed soap opera producer, was Jack Webb's long time production assistant who also produced the final two seasons of Adam 12. Later in his career, he became a voice over artist who specialized in providing voices to babies and animals that appeared in live action sitcoms.

  • Season 6 Episode 21: Limelight

  • The video game "Pong" can be seen playing on the television in the background while Roy and Johnny are treating the babysitter.

  • Season 6 Episode 20: Isolation

  • Goof: As they are pulling up to station 86 Johnny says that if he ever bought a house he would buy it up here. But during season 6 episode "To Buy or Not to Buy" Johnny did buy a house.

  • Season 6 Episode 12: Loose Ends

  • This was the first appearance of William Boyett in the recurring guest role of Battalion Chief McConnike (sometimes referred to as McConn).  Boyett was best known for his role as Sgt. MacDonald on Adam-12.

  • Season 6 Episode 10: Welcome to Santa Rosa County

  • Accent: The dispatcher who answered the Sheriff on the raido for the boat rescue had a deep south accent when they are in Southern California.

  • Season 6 Episode 7: The Exam

  • Birthdays: Johnny's August 28 Roy's November 7

  • Season 6 Episode 6: Rules of Order

  • Bob Belliveau, who appeared in this episode was Brice's partner, was the first paramedic to be certified by the LA County Fire Department, and has the certification number 0001.  This was his first and only known acting appearance (he wasn't credited), but acted as a script and technical consultant for many other episodes.

  • Season 6 Episode 5: Fair Fight

  • When Station 51 arrives at the cave in site, it is late evening, near sunset.  After Johnny is lowered down the hole, it's getting dark.  However, shortly after Roy informs Rampart of the new cave in, it appears all of the footage was shot during day time. Post production attempted to maintain continuity by lowering the brightness of the tape, but shadows can be seen around all of the rescuers.

  • New Mascot: Henry the Bassett Hound becomes the new mascot. No mention is made at all about Boot the previous mascot. Johnny suggests the name Henry, which is also Capt. Hank Stanely's name.
