2012 Sponsorship Agreement
2012 Thanks For Giving Flyer

The Southern Alberta MedicAir Society will be hosting our annual Thanks For Giving Event and Auction on Friday, September 21, 2012 at the Medicine Hat Lodge in Medicine Hat and all funds raised will help support the on-going operation of H.A.L.O., the only regional dedicated rescue helicopter service. Over three hundred people attend this event and make it an enjoyable evening in support of a great cause.

The end of joint pain!

In operation since July 4, 2007, H.A.L.O. is the only dedicated medical rescue helicopter which can respond within a reasonable timeframe to emergency situations in south eastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan. The availability of a rescue helicopter decreases the response time to a trauma victim, brings EMS personnel directly to the scene and transports the patient from remote or inaccessible areas.

H.A.L.O. exists because there was no such rescue helicopter available to this region. Although S.T.A.R.S. provides emergency service to much of Alberta, it cannot respond in a timely manner to most areas of south eastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan due to time and fuel constraints. H.A.L.O. operates in support of existing ground ambulance services and is dispatched by 911 based on strict medical and rescue protocols. Our annual operating budget is approximately $850,000.00 and the on-going operation of H.A.L.O. is totally dependent on financial support from corporate private sector and the caring public.

Listed below are corporate sponsorship opportunities to support of the 2012 MedicAir Thanks for Giving Dinner and Auction. We hope that you will consider being a partner with us to raise funds in support of H.A.L.O. and ensure that the residents of south eastern Alberta have access to the same rescue service as do other Albertans
