SVFD FIRE FIGHTERS AWARDED EXEMPLARY SERVICE MEDALS
It was 23 years ago (1977) that the Sasamat Volunteer Fire Department (SVFD) was established, and on November 15th six of the original fire fighters were each awarded the Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal on behalf of the Governor General of Canada. On behalf of all residents in the two villages served by the SVFD, we extend our collective congratulations and thanks to the six medal recipients for the more than 20 years of dedicated community service: Dan Brain, Dave Buhr, Keith Evans, Bill Fraser, Alinda Patsch, and Larry Scott.
The Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal was created by Letters Patent signed by the Queen on August 29, 1985. The design of the medal incorporates crossed axes, a hydrant and a stylized Maltese Cross, an internationally recognized symbol of the fire prevention community. The Bar to the medal consists of a plain bar with a stylized maple leaf centred. The Medal is administered by the Chancellery of Canadian Orders and Decorations in Ottawa. The federal, provincial and territorial jurisdictions recommend eligible and deserving members of the Fire Services 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.
