STARS vigilant site registration

Every day, the STARS VIGILANT emergency communications centre monitors thousands of remote sites, improving emergency preparedness for organizations across Western Canada. In the event of an emergency at a remote site, one call connects you to a STARS VIGILANT emergency communications specialist who immediately begins to coordinate a medical response.

Our sophisticated mapping system provides accurate situational awareness, allowing our team of communications specialists to determine the highest level of medical care available near your location.

During a medical or trauma incident, an on-call STARS transport physician will determine the best mode of transport for the patient and will coordinate with the receiving hospital’s doctors.


STARS VIGILANT offers site registration for a variety of industries, including oil and gas, mining, construction and agriculture. We also encourage registration of recreational facilities such as rodeo grounds, race tracks and campgrounds.

Site registration fees help to recoup operating costs of the STARS VIGILANT emergency communications centre.


important note

The STARS Emergency Link Centre is not a replacement for 911 services or onsite medical services. Registering your site with the STARS Emergency Link Centre complies with Occupational Health & Safety Guidelines. However, it does not replace the OH&S requirement for a transportation plan. It also does not guarantee that STARS, or any other aircraft, will fly to your location. This decision is based on location, the severity of injuries, weather and aircraft availability.
