no. it is not routinely deployed.LifeStar is routinely deployed to serious auto accidents in CT, and presumably that means it has a decently-short launch time in general
and again. the children were not unaccounted for. they had Teachers who accounted for them. only Sotos class didn't have teachers. I'm positive if a teacher was missing student she would have spoken up. I'm positive if there was a bleeding student in the boiler room or a closet Baro or one of the other search dogs would have found them.
Teachers STAY with their students until all parents have arrived. They just do.
and actually, although now I cant find the article because the Conspiracy theorists have bogged up the search engines so bad, the Room2 teacher with the foot wound didn't want to leave right away. which makes sense in light of the fact SHE chose to go to Bridgeport Hospital when there are 4 (possibly 5-Yale might be closer too) hospitals closer than Bridgeport.
They also could have called Lifestar in at any time if they thought a safety issue was developing no?
There are many areas in CT where you cant get to a hospital quickly, what if a child was in a car accident in one of these areas? to unnecessarily tie up resources would have been negligent.
