PITTSBURGH (AP) - Emergency dispatchers in Pittsburgh are preparing to take calls from residents who may be unprepared for fake gun shots, explosions and other mayhem while the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” films at various city locations.

The movie has received mammoth publicity in the local media. But Allegheny County Deputy Emergency Management Director Raymond DeMichiei (dee-mih-SHAY’) tells WTAE-TV (https://bit.ly/oumsu6) that some folks, no doubt, may be puzzled by some sights and sounds.

That’s why DeMichiei is telling residents, “If you hear shots fired or a disturbance or gunfire … call 911 and report it and we’ll figure it out.”

Traffic is expected to be affected, too, as some streets will be closed for filming and so crews can put down fake snow for some scenes.
