Don't really follow other programs radio traffic as far as weather turn-downs. However, we been requested to fly patients when the "other" programs turned it down because of "weather" when we all know it was BS because there has been numerous times when AWOS was clear state wide and nothing in the forecast.
IMO It was because there was not an aircraft available (for whatever the reason) and it is an easy cop-out to blame it on the weather. It's funny to hear the hospital staff or EMS say, "So-and-so could fly because of the weather, so why could you?" It's usually an interesting and informative conversation with them that follows..........
Hmmmmmmm training minutes at 2AM? The only time we have "trained" at 2AM was coming back to the airport and was practicing ILS approach.
