STARS Air Ambulance Funding
Whereas STARS has been stationed in Saskatchewan for six years, operating out of Regina and Saskatoon; and
Whereas the private sector has contributed significantly to the purchase of the emergency helicopters and ongoing operational expenses; and
Whereas STARS has had a major impact on saving lives in Saskatchewan in over 500 communities;
Therefore, be it resolved that all Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) members voluntarily contribute a minimum of $2 per capita per year to help maintain STARS;
Be it further resolved that SUMA members submit their annual STARS donations through SUMA, so that SUMA may present a cheque to the chairperson of STARS at the annual SUMA Convention.
