Film Shoot of TV Pilot 'Trauma' 7

By 11 am friendly police officers were out on the junction at King and Fourth Streets, starting to redirect traffic in early preparation for the explosive fireball that will shoot skywards over Mission Creek. (see previous blogs)

A drama that will send its paramedic stars rushing heroically to the rescue in the ensuing multi-car pileup.

The explosion, said SFPD officer, John, will take place between 1 pm and 4 pm, but signs that the big action is about to happen will be when helicopters hover over the crash site ready for their role.

Rescue helicopters will be landing as part of the NBC TV pilot Trauma, as well as being used to film the scene.

Around the corner on Berry Street, Miguel - 'Mike' - and Angel were preparing lunch for the hungry crews. If you're going to spend the day around an exploding tanker and involved in a major accident as victim or rescuer, you've got to eat!

And the food looked very good, with salads and desserts.

Mike, from LA, and Angel, from San Francisco were working with an LA catering company and Mike had been there since 2.20 am and Angel since 3.20 am! They are catering for 200 people.

'We're the holy catering company!' joked Angel, in reference to his name, pronounced in Spanish without the 'g' sound, and Mike's being the same as the biblical angel, Michael.
