Today marks the start of EMS Week 2013. Focused on bringing together local communities and medical personnel to publicize the EMS profession, this week is dedicated to honoring those who serve us day-to-day by providing valuable lifesaving services on the front-line. Each year, Braun does a special promotion to celebrate – and this year is no exception.
For every new LIKE we receive on our Facebook page today through Saturday, Braun will donate $1.00* to The Boston Emergency Medical Services Relief Association (BEMSRA).
The BEMSRA is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support to uniformed EMTs and Paramedics of Boston EMS. They serve retired and active members eligible for assistance during financially difficult times in their lives. They also hold an annual awards ceremony to recognize acts of heroism and professionalism from department members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during the previous year. As the City of Boston has one of the busiest EMS departments in the country, this is a particularly important organization in supporting those that serve that community day in and day out.
Braun Industries chose the BEMSRA as this year’s donation recipient for several reasons. First, Boston EMS is a Braun ambulance customer and the organization supports those who have devoted their lives to helping others through the department. Furthermore, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, we wanted to make a direct impact on the heroic and selfless first responders whose lives will forever be changed by the events of that day.
Help us make a difference for this exceptional department by liking our page this week! If you already follow our Facebook page, share it with your friends!
To all EMS professionals this week and always, thank you for your service. As an ambulance manufacturer, we take pride in serving you and always strive to manufacture the safest, best built, most innovative emergency vehicles on the road.
*Braun Industries will donate up to $1,000 for this campaign.
