Life Saving Commendation Medal Approved by SAR
The National Society Sons of the American Revolution Public Service and Heroism Committee recently announced the approval of the Life Saving Commendation Medal. This award recognizes acts that save a human life without necessarily placing the life of the rescuer in imminent danger. It is intended primarily for acts by civilians not in uniform but does not exclude police, firefighters, and SAR members.
Each year, the Sons of the American Revolution state societies and chapters recognize and honor citizens and individuals in the public service sectors of Law Enforcement, Fire Service, and Emergency Medical Services for their contributions to the community; and for heroic and life-saving acts. Recipients nationwide are recognized in a booklet published and distributed at the National SAR Congress each July.
Other medals approved by the society are the Law Enforcement Commendation Medal, Fire Safety Commendation Medal, Emergency Medical Service Commendation Medal, and the Heroism Medal. The Life Safety Award is presently available for preorder at the NSSAR Store, with shipment as soon as they arrive.
