This still doesn't cover the total costs of the search and rescue for that day. And there is the possibility of someone needing help and not receiving it in a timely manner because the rescuers have been delayed while out on the phoney Mayday.
This is why many of us besides the Bureaucrats that I had joked about don't have a sense of humor on this.
