Protective Service Medal Honours Long-Serving Emergency Professionals In Saskatoon

Today Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy joined Provincial Secretary Nadine Wilson to honour the latest recipients of the Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal.

“The men and women we honour today have continuously put the lives and well-being of others ahead of their own,” Wilson said.  “Their courageous dedication has made an impact on communities across the province and I 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 113 individuals from rural and urban communities across Saskatchewan.  The medals will be awarded at two ceremonies, one today in Saskatoon and another on October 16 in Regina.

Recipients receive a circular medal surmounted by the St. Edward’s Crown.  The medal bears the motto Qui civitatem tuentur (who guard the citizenry).
