Province honours long-serving emergency professionals

With The Protective Service Medal

Today Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty will be joined by Provincial Secretary Todd Goudy to honour the latest recipients of the Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal in Saskatoon.

“It is so important that we take time to recognize the courage and dedication that emergency professionals demonstrate in their daily lives,” Goudy said. “They have ensured protection and safety for the citizens of this province and I want to thank them for their service.”

The medal honours personnel with 25 years of service in Saskatchewan in the emergency services field, including police services, fire services, emergency medical services, federal and provincial corrections and the Canadian forces. This year, the medal will be presented to 153 individuals from rural and urban communities across Saskatchewan. The medals will be awarded at four ceremonies, two today and one tomorrow in Saskatoon and another on October 29 in Regina.
