Giving back to our community

bandaid the bearHelping our little ones cope with difficulties

Oxford County EMS along with the Oxford EMS employee association is proud to sponsor our teddy bear program. For several years, our paramedics have been handing out teddy bears to help our little patients cope with difficult circumstances. 

The goal of our program is to try and help make their EMS experience a more positive one.

We currently hand out approximately 130 bears a year. They are about 8 inches high as this makes a perfect fit for their little hands.

Oxford County is taking steps to support our community's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) and measures taken by Southwestern Public Health. We are monitoring our operations daily to ensure we are taking the right actions to protect our residents, employees and visitors. Get updates at
