Alberta Emergency Services Medal – 12, 22, 32 and 40 years of service
The Alberta Government initiated the Alberta Emergency Services Medal to recognize Alberta emergency services personnel who selflessly dedicated their time, talents, and, in some cases, their lives to the service of others. The medal pays tribute to outstanding full-time, part-time, and volunteer members who have committed 12, 22, 32 or 40 years of cumulative service in one or more of the eligible emergency response disciplines in Alberta.
The medal is administered by the Chancellery of Canadian Orders and Decorations in Ottawa. The federal, provincial, and territorial jurisdictions independently recommend eligible and deserving members of the fire service to the Chancellery. Awards are made on behalf of the Sovereign by Instruments signed by the Governor General and are announced in the Canada Gazette. Engraved medals and certificates of award are forwarded to the nominating authority for formal presentation on behalf of the Governor General. The Lieutenant Governor presents the medals to all recipients.
