Our fire service currently administers two National Awards for the Honours Secretariat based in Canberra. They are:
The National Medal
The National Medal is initially awarded for 15 yrs of diligent service and further clasps for 25 – 35 & 45 yrs service
The TFS Volunteer Medal and TFS Volunteer Award.
Both of these awards have been established “By the volunteers – for the volunteers”, and with the financial backing of the State Fire Commission for which we are obviously very grateful.
Both the Medal & Award have received “State Award Status” having been accepted by the State Government in September 1999 via a Cabinet Submission.
The TFS Volunteer Medal & TFS Volunteer Award are worn on the right breast and the lapel badge for the TFS Volunteer Medal is worn on the right lapel of either a jacket or outer garment.
The initial year required $20,000 to establish the system

The TFS Volunteer Medal & Award nominations are reviewed by two committees and awarded if recommended and subsequently approved.
Nominations re-open each year on the 1st November and close on the 1st March the next year.
