Canadian Fire Service Exemplary Service Medal, Cased with Miniature and Lapel Pin.
Named to D. Houghtling
Mint condition, in official case.
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. Exemplary service in any other occupation eligible for award for exemplary service may count as qualifying service. The Medal may be awarded posthumously.
