This article is dated, but the circumstances were similar to this year's Survival Flight crash.  Do we ever learn?

that easy to convince/influence others not to push it. Some just have to make the fatal mistake.

I am not going. In fact, at night if I see less than 10sm at several reporting stations I am not going. Prudence at night pays. Heed the forecast too, even if the forecasted weather has not shown up yet.

Around here it's routinely reported as 10sm. Don't know what it's like where you are. I guess you were making an attempt to impune what I said.

The Careforce aircraft never lifted off. As the crew walked out side the pilot said he was decling for weather. The medic who was new and wanted to save a life was unhappy because it was a clear night. After the pilot pointed out halo's around the street lights and said the conditions where conducive to fog, the medic backed down. The Careforce crew got a good night sleep and the pilot was thanked by the crew the next morning at the programs pre planned safety meeting. Later someone said the patient was a lady of the night who might have been thrown out of a 18 wheeler. Moral of the story...Don't let the crew push you into taking a flight if either your gut or experience tells you otherwise.

Obviously you are an old arsewipe along with having the nursing degree.

If you change your care standards based on your perceived social status you are not who I want providing service ... not medical service, not customer service, and not serving me coffee at the truck stop.

And you wonder why we call you self loading baggage?

For me, I'll fly safely and serve whoever needs the help.

Don't be that guy who posts a story that is 15 years old just so he can get some valuable troll points.

And who decides a broken leg needs a helicopter ride??  Dispatched from Spartanburg?  From the I-26 rest area in Newberry county to the Newberry County Memorial Hospital is ~15 minutes by ground ambulance.

There was no "golden hour" situation, and zero time to be saved by dispatching that helicopter from Spartanburg.

You don't want to be the guy that crashes and kills everyone on board. It doesn't look good on a resume and you won't be able to use them as a reference.
