STARS Presents to Council

Glenda Farnden, Senior Municipal Liaison for STARS Alberta, was on hand to highlight past milestones and regional statistics, and to discuss plans for the STARS fleet renewal campaign.

STARS Pres 02During the Council session, Ms. Farnden presented the County with a commemorative plaque as a token of appreciation for the County's continued support of this vital first response service. Per its funding commitment to STARS, the County has allocated $1 per capita per year for a three-year term (2019-2021). Lac Ste. Anne County is one of seven rural Alberta municipalities that support STARS, fuelling collective sustainability exceeding $1.8 million each year.

Operating from bases in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Regina, Saskatoon and Winnipeg, STARS offers hands-on training to rural medical providers, and provides rapid, emergency medical transportation for the critically ill and injured.

In June 2018, STARS unveiled a multi-year plan to replace its fleet of BK117 and AW139 aircraft with nine new medically equipped Airbus H145 helicopters, at a cost of CAD $13 million each. $1 million outfits a helicopter with the medical interior needed to perform emergency life-saving procedures.
