About Stars Air Ambulance

This is not a contact number for emergencies. This is the organizational information for the Stars Air Ambulance service from Calgary Alberta. If this is an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.  

 

A STARS helicopter is not necessarily used to respond to all incidents. Ground ambulance and airplane ambulance are other options which are taken into consideration when selecting the most appropriate emergency medical transportation. Flight times and the decision to transport by STARS helicopters are affected by a variety of factors including weather conditions, availability of resources, location of landing sites, and the condition of the patient.

An emergency physician with a background in transport medicine selects the most appropriate option and oversees the care of the patient during transport.
