More than 120 medals have been awarded to the men and women of Tasmania’s Fire Service and SES at a presentation in Penguin in the state’s North West.
72 received the National Medal for Service across their 15 years of duty.
Bruce Corbett recognised for his fire fighting work in Wynyard across a far longer timeframe.
“It’s a fantastic honour, I’ve had 47 years in the fire service and whilst I can’t remember everything about it, it’s been a great journey.”
Minister Felix Ellis presided over the presentation.
“All of our emergency services personnel, right across the state, give fantastic service to their communities.
“The recognition of these people today is well deserved, and is an inspirational testament to their passion, experience and commitment to help others in Tasmania.”
