The Star of Life symbol was originally designed and governed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and applies to emergency medical services, EMS. The star was designed with six "points" and represents an aspect of the EMS System: Detection, Response, Reporting, On-Scene Care, Care-In-Transit, Transfer to Definitive Care. The staff on the star represents Medicine and Healing. The star of life represents what EMS (Emergency Medical Services) do, and how special EMS providers are.
