America’s first responders are the recipients of a new General Motors discount program for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and OnStar.

“Millions of men and women serve their neighbors as police officers, firefighters, emergency medical service professionals, and 911 dispatchers,” said Steve Hill, GM’s 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.”

The new discount applies to paid and volunteer police officers, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and 911 dispatchers. These first responders can now purchase new vehicles for less than the MSRP at participating dealerships. The discount can also be combined with other offers.

Details on receiving the GM first responder discount

First responders can also get a 15% discount for OnStar Safety & Security and some Connected Services plans. These services include automatic crash response, emergency services, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle assistance, turn-by-turn navigation, and unlimited 4G LTE data. Last year, OnStar partnered with first responders on more than 45,000 automatic crash response notifications.

GM already offers a discount for U.S. military members, and the automaker recently extended that program so the discount would be available up to three years after a service member is discharged.

GM also offers discount programs for educators, college and grad students, and recent college graduates.
