** There's also the scene where they block and deal with the main lava flow, they also sprayed water into the volcano to pacify it. In reality, if you tried to cool down a volcano, then you would most likely make the eruption phreatic or phreatomagmatic. Which considering that these types of eruptions are a ''[[TooDumbToLive crapton more dangerous than plain lava eruptions, you would pretty much be asking for Los Angeles to be levelled by pyroclastic base surges.]]''

* WorstAid: Zigzagged and not in a good way with the down firefighters. Roark tells someone he believes to be a civilian to not move down personnel and that ambulances are on the way - good. Roark (who is not a medic) defers to medical expertise once the civilian identifies themselves as a doctor - good. Dr. Calder assessing injuries for severity and determining trauma care she can't provide is needed - good. Dr. Calder opting to transport serious vehicle accident casualties in a civilian car with no immobilization - '''not good!''' Roark ''just told her'' that ambulances are on the way (this is the middle of otherwise normal Los Angeles, this claim will be valid), paramedics are good at stabilizing serious vehicle accident casualties, and both of these people may have CNS injuries that can be ''lethal'' if not immobilized.
** Ironically the circumstances at the end of the movie (field hospital being overrun by lava) do justify such antics with the "certain death" angle.

** Given she is the assistant to doctorate geologist Amy, you would expect Rachel to know a thing or two about rocks and volcanoes. Rachel even backs Amy's theory about volcanic activity being a culprit regarding the death for seven men in an underground tunnel. Yet, while they investigate ''that very tunnel'', Rachel decides to straddle a large crack surrounded by sulfur residue. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong What could possibly go wrong?]]

*** For that matter, Tommy, the aforesaid kid, who leaves the restaurant (which contains someone who is taking care of him, and another little girl he's been playing games with) and wanders out into an empty parking garage for ''literally no reason''. And, as mentioned above, makes it all the way out to the street, alone, when any sensible kid ought to have been terrified to be away from an adult.

*** Quantity of molten material may well be important, though. I sincerely doubt your leather apron would be adequate protection against a literal lake of lava surrounding you, and all the heat that will radiate.

''Volcano'' is a 1997 DisasterMovie directed by Mick Jackson and starring TommyLeeJones. He plays Mike Roark, head of the Los Angeles Emergency Management Center. One day, after an early morning earthquake, Roark discovers fire erupting below the city. A scientist, Dr. Amy Barnes (Anne Heche), points him to volcanic activity brewing underneath the La Brea Tar Pits. Later that night, an actual volcano, later named ''Mount Wilshire'', emerges from the tar pits and erupts.

It's up to Mike and his management team, including his [[TheLancer second-in-command]] Emmit Reese (DonCheadle), to save the city from total destruction.

***On the other hand, I sit about 3 feet in front of my forge to judge the heating of metal, and that reaches about 2300 degrees Farenheit when I want to forge weld steel. Heat treating blades is generally done around 1500F, and I'm not wearing anything more protective than a leather apron.
