Demers Ambulances to Honor EMS Professionals in May


The innovative ambulance manufacturer will observe Paramedic Services Week in Canada, as well as National EMS Week in the United States.

May 18, 2023 – Beloeil, Quebec | Van Wert, Ohio: As a Canadian-based ambulance manufacturer with an extensive dealer network in the United States, Demers Ambulances is gearing up to celebrate National EMS Week and Paramedic Services Week. Organized by two unique organizations in each country, both will be observed May 21-27, 2023. Demers’ celebrations will include an online giveaway to win a crew lunch, awareness for the EMS profession, and public gratitude for the EMTs, paramedics, and the entire EMS workforce doing great work in their local communities. Those interested in participating in the giveaway should follow Demers on Facebook at

“We are so excited that these two special weeks overlap this year,” says Canada’s Sales & Marketing Vice President, Scott Sawatsky. “It doesn’t matter which country you’re in. The importance of the EMS profession is recognized everywhere. While the two countries may differ in certifications or requirements, the type of person that goes into EMS is the same. They are compassionate, selfless heroes that aid their neighbors in times of need. They should be celebrated accordingly, and it is our honor to take a moment to do so during these events.”

May 21-27, 2023, will mark the 49th annual National EMS Week in the United States. The week was established by President Gerald Ford to celebrate the EMS practitioners and the vital work they do in their local communities. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) partner to lead the annual EMS Week activities. This year, they have selected the overall theme of “Where Emergency Care Begins” and have put together resources and suggestions to ensure that the crucial contributions of EMS professionals are fully celebrated and recognized. Daily themes will be observed as well.

In Canada, Paramedic Services Week 2023 will highlight the theme, “Diversity in Paramedicine – The Patient. The Provider. The Profession.” It will also have daily themes May 21-27, 2023, that include: Equity-Diversity-Inclusion (Monday), Diversity in Patients (Tuesday), Diversity in the Provider (Wednesday), Paramedic Research (Thursday), and Diversity in the Profession (Friday). The week is overseen by the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada.

Demers Ambulances will observe both events by sharing content and social media resources related to daily themes. In addition, throughout the week of May 21-27, 2023, people can also enter an online giveaway. The giveaway will be open to all EMS professionals in the United States and Canada. The prize will be lunch for the winning department. Two winners will be selected, one from each country. Those interested in entering should follow Demers on Facebook at
