STARS PROVIDES CRITICAL CARE IN LIFE AND DEATH SITUATIONS.

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS.

Since STARS lifted off for the first time in 1985, we’ve flown more than 40,000 missions to provide critical care services in life and death situations.

RACING AGAINST TIME

In critical situations, every second counts. When an emergency call comes in, our team of paramedics, nurses and transport doctors has to act in an instant. Your support allows our STARS Emergency Link Centre™ to coordinate these calls and bring fast, life-saving care to patients in need.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

It’s not just helicopters. In delivering world-class care, we use state-of-the-art medical, aviation and training equipment in all our bases and education units. Your support makes this possible.

THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST

To save lives, our air medical crew needs cutting-edge training, and our pilots need to get them to the patients as quickly and safely as possible. Support from people like you is key to delivering this critical care.

JUST ASK CHELSIE.

YOUR SUPPORT HELPED SAVE CHELSIE’S LIFE.

When Chelsie and her good friend hit the highway on their way to the fair, they had to idea how their lives would change forever. When the one-tonne truck slammed into the side of their car, most of the vehicle’s rear half was torn off.

With a transport physician onboard, STARS’ flying intensive care unit got critically injured Chelsie from the local rural hospital to a major trauma centre, giving her the best chance for survival. Her injuries were severe and extensive. Yet years later, married with two children, Chelsie has a positive attitude and continues her recovery.
