Canada - Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal

This is my father's medal. It was personally presented to him by the Duke of Edinburgh in the mid-80s. The Prince was in Sherbrooke attending a loyalist convention in Lennoxville.

Statute:

The Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal, created on August 29, 1985, honours members of a recognized Canadian fire service who have completed 20 years of service, ten years of which have been served in the performance of duties involving potential risks, and were employed on or after the date of creation of the Medal. Recognized fire services include Canadian fire departments, fire marshals’ offices, fire commissioners’ offices and the Canadian Forces fire services. Exemplary service is characterized by good conduct, industry and efficiency.

Consideration is given only to periods of service for which no other long service, good conduct or efficiency decoration or medal has been awarded by the Crown. The Medal may be awarded posthumously.

Description: a circular medal:

  • on the obverse of which is a stylized maple leaf bearing a fire hydrant with crossed axes, upon which a Maltese cross is centred, and which is circumscribed with EXEMPLARY SERVICE . SERVICES DISTINGUÉS, and
  • on the reverse of which is the Royal Cipher
  • the Medal is suspended from a ribbon of five equal stripes, two gold and three red; a Bar, bearing a stylized maple leaf, may be awarded to a recipient of the Medal for each additional 10-year period of service in the Canadian fire service.
