I know that at times, San Bernardino County, Victorville to Wrightwood, seems to fly everyone out, usually via Mercy Air. Even a leg laceration can get you a helo flight. But I think it has to do with the problem that tranportation via the RA unit keeps that unit out of service for too long a time since drive times are usually pretty long.swest90 said:Also listen to LA Co fire sometimes, they fly people out for ridiculous reasons. I cant beleive some of the stuff that people are getting flown out for. Guess its good to be procautionary, but then why not fund a trauma center for this side of the county?
yesterday Monterey ECC call out a local strike to help you guys down south again..RobertW1 said:It might have something to do with them being more proactive during this RED FLAG alert and the high fire danger we are experiencing this week. I know here in Burbank, the police chopper is spending alot of time flying low over the foothills watching for possible fires and arson activity.
Also, they have been calling up new strike teams all weekend for the DAY fire from various fire agencies From Burbank to Pomona. Perhaps it has something to do with that.
