I agree with the whole "helicopter shopping" thing. The folks needing smelling salts and clutching their pearls when a hospital continues to call after a turn down is a joke: do the flight if you can, don't do it if you can't. We all know how many bases turn down many perfectly doable flights due to "weather". Same with the SF sheet saying they have lower minimums. Yawn. Take. The. Flight. If. You. Can. Pretty simple. Who gives a crap what they tell the hospital or FD. 

I agree about the red thing, too. But if they're going to call regardless, may as well stay yellow until it's green. They could get rid of red altogether and it wouldn't matter one bit. I did work somewhere where there was an unwritten rule that you never went red as they then would not call with a request and then the situation that you describe would happen. In the end, it's all the same. I'll stay yellow in bad or questionable weather until somebody tells me otherwise.
