Premier Greg Selinger says the province has reached a leasing agreement with an Alberta-based emergency response company called Stars.

Selinger says the aim is to make sure emergency workers can reach anyone who gets isolated by flooding.

Last November, the NDP government promised a permanent ambulance-helicopter that could serve in any emergency.

Selinger says the leasing deal with Stars is temporary.


The province may end up with a different agreement for a permanent chopper.
