Hamilton Paramedic Service (HPS) will evaluate whether the addition of two new Demers™ ambulances outfitted with hybrid regenerative braking technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the City’s overall carbon footprint.
Approved by Hamilton City Council in 2019, this initiative will allow HPS to support the City’s vision of delivering services in a manner that limits negative impacts to air quality, water, soil, flora and fauna, by ensuring the needs of today do not negatively impact the future.
HPS’s ongoing focus on innovation, as it relates to vehicle technology, also aligns with the recently approved term of Council priority of climate change. This term of Council priority targets the annual reduction of community-wide greenhouse gas emissions to equal net-zero emission before 2050.
