The Minnesota Ambulance Association (MAA) is hosting the Stars of Life Program in cooperation with the American Ambulance Association.

The Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Stars of Life program celebrates the contributions of ambulance professionals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in service to their communities or the EMS profession.  The event recognizes the unsung heroes of Minnesota ambulance services.  EMTs, Paramedics, Dispatchers, and other EMS professionals.  Stars and their guests, accompanied by executive hosts, are celebrated in a series of events in our State’s capitol, City of Saint Paul.

The Stars of Life Program honors the contributions of these heroes while shining light on the critical role EMS plays in our healthcare infrastructure.

Why the Stars of Life Program is important:

As the MAA and AAA work hard on state and federal legislative and policy issues, we know it is crucial to create a critical mass of local community activity and consistent messages about the need for state legislation assisting ambulance providers.  In order for legislation to pass, ambulance providers must help generate support with their local legislators. 

Benefits to EMS Organizations:

  • The Stars are more politically aware and involved in community activities
  • Legislators understand the need to ambulance services
  • The public is more informed about quality ambulance services
  • Local media is more aware and educated about the needs of ambulance services
