The Health Science 20 class from Robert Southey School, along with a stream student from Broadview, went on a tour of the STARS Air Ambulance Base in Regina on Tuesday October 23, 2018. The students were given a tour of the helicopter were able to sit in the pilot seats and in the back of the helicopter. The students learned about who flies in the helicopter, how STARS dispatch works, the kinds of medical equipment that STARS carries on board its' helicopters, and about night vision goggle technology for pilots. The students were then taken through the SIMS lab where they learned about continuing professional development and training of STARS personnel. STARS Nurse Denise Treleaven showed the students about bone drills and showed the students how the newborn, adult, and pregnant/fetal SIMS operate. The students finished the tour learning about education and training requirements of all STARS personnel. It was a very valuable tour that tied nicely with Health Science 20 curriculum outcomes!
