STARS is presenting Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel with a Red Ring for Life (RRFL) in City Council Chambers at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011, in recognition of the City of Edmonton’s life-saving work with STARS. STARS representatives will be available for interviews following the presentation.
The presentation recognizes the City’s support, through its services provided on behalf of Edmontonians, which assist in STARS’ ability to serve the community. Since STARS began operating with a base in Edmonton in 1991, the City’s Protective Services, and individual emergency responders, have contributed to numerous life saving missions.
Many missions have involved Edmontonians as both patients and emergency service providers. Thanks to the City’s cooperation, Edmontonians can continue relying on STARS, while traveling on our highways, working outside the city, and when needed within the city limits.
The goal of the RRFL fundraising program is to engage donors, patients and members of the public, including the City of Edmonton, in STARS life-saving mission. The rings are a symbol of survival, courage, recovery, and the many hands involved in the chain of survival.
