N.S.W. Ambulance Meritorious Service Medal
The award was introduced in August 1990 to recognise outstanding contributions to duty by employees of
NSW Ambulance. It is to be awarded for ‘meritorious service’, that is, service distinguishable from an employee’s faithful and zealous service of ordinary work.
Awarded to employees for service that may be considered meritorious if it demonstrates a high degree of resource and devotion, or in the exemplary discharge of special duties above and beyond an employee’s normal work. A person who is already a holder of the medal may be awarded again, with a clasp presented.
