The EMS Exemplary Service Medal Provincial Committee is now accepting nomination forms for paramedics until February 20, 2015.
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, 1991;
b. has completed at least 20 years of service with EMS, at least 10 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.”
If you feel that someone meets the above criteria and would like to nominate your peer, please fill out the Provincial Nomination Form and send to CommunityRelations@emci.ca.
More information on the Exemplary Service Medal can be found here.
Forms need to be completely filled out in order to be considered.
The EMS Exemplary Service Medal is not the same as the EHS Long Service Award. These medals are part of a national program handed out by the Governor General's office.
Any Nova Scotia paramedic may be nominated; this is not an EMC or EHS-specific medal.
