From Small Beginnings...
Statewide Transfer Ambulance & Rescue, or STAR, was founded by Sam and Linda Peck on April 1st, 1982 in Crawfordsville, Indiana. From its small beginnings, starting with eight crew members and one ambulance, S.T.A.R began to grow into the service it is today. All the while remaining under the ownership and direction of the Peck Family.
Over the past 40+ years STAR has expanded to 19 ambulances, 2 Off-Road Rescue vehicles, 100+ employees consisting of EMTs, Paramedics, Dispatchers, Billing Staff, Mechanics, and Management Staff. At present STAR operates from 7 stations in Clay, Marion/Hendricks, Montgomery, Putnam and Tippecanoe Counties.
STAR operates 24/7/365 providing state-award winning Emergent, Non-Emergent, Special Event, Bariatric, and Critical Care Ambulance transport. STAR is the preferred ambulance provider for Fransican Health - Crawfordsville, Hendricks Regional Health Hospitals in Brownsburg and Danville, Putnam County Hospital, and St. Vincent Clay. STAR is the on-site EMS for some of the largest off-road motor races in the world including Lucas Oil Motocross and the GNCC Ironman Championship race. Finally, STAR employs State Certified Primary Instructors conducting multiple EMT and EMR courses at our facilities each year.
