Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and Metro West’s first responders are working together to promote the Special Needs Tracking and Awareness Response System, or S.T.A.R.S, program. It’s a system that provides medical information of a special needs child to first responders prior to emergency situations. “The purpose of the STARS program is to create a tracking awareness system for our ambulance districts, fire districts and community hospitals to both recognize the special needs of patients inside their coverage area and have the training to appropriately care for these patients.” To learn more about this program, click on Metro West’ link (Metro West’s S.T.A.R.S. program) or Cardinal Glennon Children’s link (Cardinal Glennon S.T.A.R.S program).
