ERS celebrates fifth anniversary

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Emergency Road Services founders Dawn and Alvis Violo recently invited more than 100 customers into their home to celebrate the five-year anniversary of their company.

The anniversary celebration on Sept. 24 marks five years in business and 25,000 service calls.

“What we really wanted to do was to show our appreciation to our customers and vendors for their ongoing support throughout the years,” said ERS co-founder and president, Dawn Violo.

ERS was launched in 2006 to provide emergency road service that was prompt, cost-effective and comprehensive, the company’s founders claim.

“No one had ever done in Canada what we wanted to do, and that was to provide one number to call 24/7 for all road emergency services across Canada and the US,” Dawn Violo said. “In the past, stranded drivers or dispatchers had to do everything on their own and call individual mechanics or technicians. What we do instead is provide a streamlined and hassle-free approach by dispatching a service provider closest to the breakdown location with the best price that will tend to all vehicle contingencies including mechanical breakdowns, towing, tires and lock outs.”

The company calls upon a network of more than 17,000 service providers to get customers back on the road quickly anywhere in North America. More on the company can be found at or by calling 877-377-2262.
