Name the Bear Contest – Update

by EMP Editor on December 29, 2014

Below is a picture of Bernard’s son, the winner of the EMP Name the Bear Contest for 2014.  We are glad that the bear made it to Massachusetts safe and sound.  Bernard’s son named the bear Am-Bear-Lance, and was voted the top entry by the Emergency Medical Products’ employees.



Name the Bear Contest Winner

by EMP Editor on December 19, 2014

The winner of our Name the Bear Contest was Bernard, a fireman based out of the University of Massachusetts Memorial Hospital.  Bernard’s entry of Am-Bear-Lance was voted the top choice by the Emergency Medical Products’ employees.

Bernard shared a touching story with the EMP group relative to the naming of the bear, and we thank Bernard for his story.  Congratulations Bernard, your 5’ stuffed bear has shipped, and is on its way to you.  It should be arriving at your doorstep on Christmas Eve!

After we launched the contest, we also stumbled upon a baby bear that looked very similar to the large stuffed bear we had sitting in our lobby.  A picture of baby bear is shown below.  In the spirit of the holiday season, we decided at the last minute to donate baby bear.  We donated him to a local shelter for homeless and abused children, and hopefully he will bring a smile and soft hug to someone in need.

So, now you know the story of the bears and EMP.  We hope it made someone’s holiday season a little brighter.

On behalf of the employees at Emergency Medical Products, we wish you all safe and happy holidays and a Bear-y Christmas!



Name the Bear Contest

by EMP Editor on December 4, 2014

In the spirit of the holiday season Emergency Medical Products wanted to do something a little bit different, and fun, for our customers and employees.  So, this holiday season we have a five foot stuffed bear sitting, literally, in our lobby.  Seriously, check out the picture below to see just how HUGE this bear really is!  Just don’t let his size fool you – as far as stuffed bears go, this guy is as cute, cuddly, and as soft as they come.

We would like to give the bear a name and are asking our customers for help.  Please enter our Name the Bear Contest by emailing your suggestion to marketingpromo@buyemp.com.  We’ll collect all the entries and then have our employees vote for the best name.

On December 18th we’ll announce the winner on our blog.  We’ll also ship the bear out that same day, so the winner will have their bear just in time for the holiday season.

If you haven’t taken the time to check out our Holiday Gift Shoppe, please do so now.  Quantities are limited and going fast, and we want to make sure you have those gifts for friends and family in time for the holidays.  You might even find a couple of different bears in the Holiday Gift Shoppe too, just none as big as the bear to be named in our lobby;)
