Demers Donates Ambulances to Bahamas in Wake of Hurricane Dorian


Beloeil, October 10, 2019 − Demers Ambulances (‘’Demers’’) donated two Type III MX164 ambulances that will be put into service by Public Hospitals Authority of the Bahamas. With medical teams stretched to the limits, the ambulances will provide a much-needed boost to teams in Freeport and Abaco Island providing care to those affected by Hurricane Dorian.


“Many ambulances were destroyed by the hurricane, in a time when they are needed most,” said Benoit Lafortune, Executive Vice-President at Demers Ambulances. “We understand the important work of the EMS and wanted to do our part to support them as they recover from the devastation of this unimaginable disaster.”


Category 5 Hurricane Dorian destroyed many ambulances and medical infrastructure. Demers Ambulances employees and suppliers stepped up to make the donation possible. The vehicles were transported from Canada to Miami by Groupe TYT, Inc.
