St. Charles County STARS [Special Needs Tracking & Awareness Response System] is a program designed for children with moderate to severe medical conditions who utilize special medical equipment and/or present with uncommon symptoms.
Utilized by both St. Charles County Ambulance District and City of St. Charles Fire Department, STARS provides Paramedics with important information about the patient prior to their arrival on the scene of an emergency call.
When a family opts to participate, our STARS Coordinator will work with them to obtain important medical information about the child. Data is uploaded into a secure, electronic record available on all ambulances in the county.
Seizure disorders, cerebral shunts, tracheostomies, severe developmental delay an atypical diseases/syndromes would all be examples of conditions that would warrant participation in the program.
For more information or to enroll, please contact our STARS Coordinator at 636-344-7686.
