SPECIAL NEEDS TRACKING AND AWARENESS RESPONSE SYSTEM
The ambulance district has joined several others in the St. Louis area that have started a new program called S.T.A.R.S. — Special Need Tracking and Awareness Response System.
The program is for special needs patents especially under the age of 18 and allows the district to be aware of any medical conditions it may encounter when responding to an emergency call.
The S.T.A.R.S. program was founded a few years ago by Shelby Cox, EMS liaison for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, and Tricia Casey, a paramedic with Rock Township Ambulance District. Once our district attended a meeting and learned more about the program, our administrators and paramedics agreed it would be beneficial to local families.
To learn more information about the S.T.A.R.S. Program, contact Battalion Chief Janet Norton, Lincoln County Ambulance District STARS Coordinator, at 636-528-8488 ext. 306 or st[email protected] or fill out the form below and we will contact you.
