Fire Services Long Service Medal

The Office of the Fire Marshal is now accepting applications for the provincial 45 year bar.

Application Form

Mount Your Medals

Firefighters who have been awarded Provincial Long Service medals, Federal Exemplary Service medals, Queen’s Diamond or Golden Jubilee medals, or medals issued by their municipality deserve to have those important decorations properly mounted for formal dress wear as well as for ‘undress’ uniform wear.

I have acquired the residual stock and equipment owned by the late W.G. Cullum of Sackville, NS, and will court-mount medals as well as produce ‘undress’ ribbon bars for less formal wear. If you have been awarded any of these decorations, or subsequent bars, you should be proud to wear them as part of your uniform and maintain them in the best possible condition. Court mounting minimizes wear and tear and eliminates the medals ‘clinking’ together as they move. Contact me to arrange to have your medals mounted, ribbon bars made, or duplicates supplied.
