    I totally agree! Who are you to make medical decisions. The person in charge on that scene is the one making that decision. You can't put a dollar figure on a life! You would want everything possibe done if it were your family member. People have so many comments about fire and rescue, but it takes a passionate person to do that job. How do you even know if it is was a right decision? Are you credital?? Probally NOT!!!

    We just try to follow our protocols the best we can. let us do our job like we are suppose to and quit trying to bad mouth the ems and fire services. if you were not there then you don't know what was the right thing to do.

    id rather a family get airlifted for nothing, than die on the long bumpy road to the hospital! sometimes internal injuries dont take long to kill a person!

    I agree Woodrow. I agree that it's better to be proactive than reactive, especially with the extent of seen & unseen injuries that you can have in a wreck, but this sounds like a poor medical judgment to me. Glad they're all ok though.

    When it's really needed, it's great, but airlifting someone who's then released the same day, hmmmm... some good cash flow going somewhere!
