In view of the controversy about the Occupy Bristol protest on College Green,
I have emailed the Wings Aeromedical Group here, along these lines:
I would be grateful if you could let me know how many times College Green has been used for a landing site for an air ambulance in the last 10 years. Is it indeed a suitable site? Would it not be a good idea to adapt the roof of the BRI to act as a helipad?
We must accept that even if the answer is zero, there is still a finite chance that College Green could be required tomorrow. In that case, the tents could be removed in 3 minutes. In fact the downwash from the rotors would probably remove them automatically.
The Air Ambulance thing is another bullsh*t reason to be used against Occupy, like the faux Health and Safety arguments used at St Pauls and OccupyWallSt.
Funny how the Right rails against H&S, but is then prepared to use it when convenient.
