About the EMS Exemplary Service Medal
 
The EMS Exemplary Service Medal is part of the Exemplary Service Medals family. It was created on July 7, 1994 to recognize professionals in the provision of pre-hospital emergency medical services who have performed their duties in an exemplary manner.
 
 Qualifications
 
To qualify for the EMS Exemplary Service Medal the member must meet the regulation which states “the medal may be awarded to any person who:”
a.    is an emergency medical services employee on or after October 31, 1995;
b.    has completed at least twenty years of service with EMS, at least ten years of which have been served in the performance of duties involving potential risk, as determined by the  Advisory Committee; and
c.    has a record of exemplary service of such a high standard as to merit award of the Medal.”
 
What is ‘Exemplary Service?’
 
Section 2 of the Regulations governing the award states “exemplary service means service, characterized by good conduct, industry, efficiency that serves as a model for others.”
 
Exemplary service is that standard of individual EMS service, performance and dedication that we would wish to see imitated. It is the model of what we would wish all EMS personnel to be, rather than merely the standard of performance we require.
