The STARS Emergency Link Centre (ELC) is a 24-hour emergency medical communications centre that offers timely information to emergency service providers for critically ill and injured patients as well as a range of services for industry partners.
In Alberta and Saskatchewan, the STARS ELC oversees STARS helicopter missions, coordinates transport and care for critically ill and injured patients, and facilitates on line medical consultations.
The STARS ELC monitors thousands of remote sites. In the event of an emergency, one call begins the coordination of a medical response.
The STARS ECC can provide emergency call answer services, incident notification and call out services, and work alone monitoring.
