GM and OnStar Give First Responders Special Pricing

By Emily Eppley | June 21st, 2018

 

As a special thanks to some of our everyday heroes, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and OnStar announced special pricing for first responders. GM and OnStar designed the program to recognize the bravery, dedication, and resolve of America’s first responders and help them continue to provide their skilled services for our country. Paid and volunteer police, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and 911 dispatchers now qualify for a special discount below the manufacturer’s suggested retail price on new vehicles at participating dealers. The discount is compatible with most other available offers.

“Millions of men and women serve their neighbors as police officers, firefighters, emergency medical service professionals, and 911 dispatchers,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales, service and marketing. “Not long after the hurricanes of 2017, we started thinking about ways to recognize first responders in a really meaningful way. The team came back and said first responders deserve the same new vehicle discount we offer members of the military because every single person in uniform helps protect us.”

According to The American Security Council Foundation, there are about 800,000 police officers, 1.13 million firefighters, and 891,000 emergency medical service professionals in the U.S. They all now qualify for this special pricing plan.

First responders can also receive an offer of 15 percent off OnStar Safety & Security and select Connected Services plans. For 21 years, OnStar has worked with its network of first responders every day to help save lives. In 2017, OnStar responded to nearly 46,000 automatic-crash-response notifications in the U.S. in partnership with first responders.
