Manitoba announced a new specialty licence plate is available to qualifying Manitoba emergency medical services providers.
“For paramedics across the province, this new licence plate is a distinctive way for active and retired paramedics to demonstrate the bonds that unite them,” said Crown Services Minister Ron Schuler. “The new licence plate reflects the history and culture of paramedics, while also meeting the needs of all our road safety partners.”
The new plate series, which is administered by Manitoba Public Insurance, is available to current and retired licensed emergency medical services providers, as well as their immediate families. Immediate family members of fallen paramedics are also eligible for paramedic specialty plates.
Manitoba’s paramedic plate will be blue in colour, with a red EKG line crossing the bottom of the plate as well as the phrase ‘Responding for Life’. The symbol chosen for the plate contains the paramedic Star of Life atop a red maple leaf.
“Paramedics play an incredibly important role in delivering emergency medical services to Manitobans,” said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen.
The plates will cost $70, with $30 from each purchase going toward the Canadian Mental Health Association (Manitoba and Winnipeg region). Licence plate applications can be downloaded from www.mpi.mb.ca.
