Demers, Braun, Crestline to Support EMS World Expo 2021 from a Distance


Regarding the health and safety of our employees and dealer family, we regret to announce Demers, Braun, Crestline will not be attending EMS World Expo 2021 on October 4-8, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. Instead, we will support the event from a distance, remaining a long-time advertiser with EMS World media, and as a champion for the EMS profession.


“We are disappointed that we will not be at EMS World Expo this year,” says Chad Brown, Vice President of US Sales for Demers, Braun, Crestline. “It is a great tradeshow, and we were looking forward to being together for the event. Fortunately, we will still be participating from afar. It is an annual tradition to sponsor the NAEMT EMT of the Year award, which is presented at the event. We also have two products named EMS World Expo Innovation Awards finalists, the Braun Ambulance TLC ambulance model, and IMPACT Airbag System safety feature.”


The NAEMT EMT of the Year award will be presented on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, to an emergency medical technician who demonstrates excellence in the performance of emergency medical services, with their primary role being that of prehospital patient care. The award recipient receives $1,000 in cash, three core program registrations, and $1,200 for travel and lodging at the EMS World Expo and NAEMT Annual Meeting held the same year as the award. This year’s winner is Tracie Sanders, EMT from Normanna, Texas. Congratulations Tracie!
