Trauma is a television series which originally ran on NBC from September 28, 2009 to April 28, 2010 and focused on a group of paramedics in San Francisco, California.[1]

A month after its premiere NBC announced it would not order any further episodes, but would broadcast the 13 episodes ordered.[2] On November 19, 2009, NBC reversed its decision, announcing it had ordered three additional episodes of the series, bringing the order to 16 episodes; the order was extended to 20 episodes on January 20, 2010, as part of a package of episode orders that followed the demise of The Jay Leno Show.[3] Trauma returned on March 8, 2010,[4] with the season finale scheduled for May 10, 2010.[5] In early April 2010, NBC reduced the episode order down to 18 and announced an April 26, 2010 finale.[6]

On May 14, 2010, the show was cancelled by NBC after one season.[7]

The pilot episode featured a multi-vehicle accident and resulting giant fireball, which were filmed in March 2009 on Interstate 280 in the Mission Bay neighborhood just south of downtown San Francisco.[15]

All episodes included an air helicopter ambulance base station, San Francisco Fire Department Station 4 (there is no actual station 4 in SFFD), which in later episodes was located at a converted warehouse (Bldg. 180) on California Ave and US Naval Station Way, Treasure Island. The warehouse still stands, and still has "Angel Rescue Services" and SFFD logos on it. In earlier episodes the air helicopter ambulance base station was located at Naval Airship Square (helipad) by an abandoned Naval firehouse (Bldg. 111) on Pan American World Airways Esplanade and Avenue I, Treasure Island. Interior scenes were filmed on a converted sound stage in Hangar/Bldg 3 at 600 California Ave., Treasure Island. The ambulances used in production were manufactured in 2008 by MedTec Ambulance Corporation. They were trucked back to Los Angeles shortly after the show was cancelled. The two main production ambulances, 2008 Medtec Type III ambulances were sold shortly after, to Franklin Park Fire Department and Hamilton County Ambulance. The four other Type II ambulances were returned to their private leasing company.

The show has used places like Alameda Point for filming. One of the destroyed jets can be seen in Google Imagery.[16]
