STARS Air Rescue Sees Expansion


LETHBRIDGE: Looks like STARS air ambulance has more than Thursday's launch of its 19th annual fundraising lottery to celebrate.

The charitable non-profit completed about 1500 missions in 2011, more than ever before in its 27-year history. And the group has plans to expand further.

Those plans include two new helicopters, which will be able to fly farther, faster and in more harsh weather conditions. STARS spokesperson Rae Fehr says that means they'll be able to help more patients in communities they haven't before been able to access - which means better service for Albertans.

"Supporting the lottery or any of our fundraising initiatives just helps us stay in the sky and be there for the people of Alberta," said Fehr. "Just one flight impacts so many people's lives."

The STARS Lottery is the single largest source of funding that keeps the 24-hour shock and trauma air and rescue service going. This year's draw includes five grand prizes worth more than $3.7 million, including show homes in Lethbridge, Sylvan Lake, Edmonton and Calgary.
