Award kicks off during National EMS Week (May 21-27)
Dynarex, a leading medical products brand and provider of disposable medical products, announces the 2017 Dynarex “First Responder Caring Award.” To acknowledge its appreciation for and commitment to first responders, Dynarex would like to recognize a first responder or department who in 2017, has demonstrated the essence of caring or compassion, which can include personnel in EMT, EMS, paramedic, police or fire. As a result, the company wants to hear from the first responder community with unique and newsworthy stories of heroism, exceptional community service, acts of compassion or demonstration of caring and commitment to others. Dynarex is also recognizing National EMS Week (May 21-27) with the launch of the award program.
“Everything we do at Dynarex and beyond exemplifies our motto, ‘We Care Like Family.’ The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and first responder community is important to us, so we wanted to create a program where we can recognize the amazing work that they do every day,” said Zalman Tenenbaum, President and CEO of Dynarex. “We look forward to receiving these compelling stories and are honored to have the opportunity to award a group of important individuals.”
A panel of independent judges from the first responder community such as National EMS Management Association, as well as representatives from Dynarex, including Tenenbaum and Clinical Advocate Janette Ostrander, will select four regional winners (West Coast, South, East Coast and Central States/Midwest) and one national grand prize winner.
Dynarex will award $5,000 in medical supplies to the national winner and $1,000 in medical supplies to each of the four regional semi-finalists, which can be donated by the winner to their unit or to a worthy 501c3 nonprofit of their choice.
The submission should include background/history on the first responder and/or their EMS department and information on why the individual or unit/department should receive Dynarex’s “First Responder Caring Award.” Inclusion of photos, video or news clips is encouraged.
Essay criteria and submission information can be found at www.dynarex.com/firstresponderpromo.php. The deadline for entries is September 15, 2017. Winners will be announced on October 18th, 2017 at the EMS World Expo Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
