Emergency response

Meadow Lake EMS workers and technicians with STARS Air Ambulance attended the Meadow Lake Airport April 16 where they loaded a patient from the Meadow Lake Hospital onto the STARS helicopter as part of an inter-facility transfer to Saskatoon. STARS spokesperson Bonnie Monteith said, since the service expanded to cover regions in the North in 2012, a helicopter has been sent to the city four times. She went on to say an air ambulance could be dispatched to more northerly locations depending on the patient’s needs and if fuel is available.
