The Honours and Awards committee is the result of the Board of Directors realizing that there was a need to recognize our paramedics no matter whom their employer may be within our province. Our committee is composed of five well-chosen individuals that are current paramedics, employers and public representatives. This ensures that all paramedics are considered for various awards and not excluded based on their employer.
Below you will be able to view the Terms of Reference for this committee as they we're written at the time of the committee's inception.
This committee has created two new awards that have been approved by the Board of Directors for recognizing the community aspect of paramedecine practice and the contribution paramedics make in their field of paramedecine. These awards will be presented to medics on a nomination basis following a review of the nomination forms received. These two awards may not be presented each year but reserved for years when a suitable recipient is nominated. The award criteria and nomination forms are located at the bottom of the page.
PANB is continuing to recognize paramedics for their long service to the profession starting at 20 years of service and up. All medics must be in good standing within the association to be eligible and do not require a nomination form to be considered for this award. Please do your part in this award by correctly filling out the years you have served within EMS on your yearly registration form.
The final award for consideration is the EMS Exemplary Service Medal award. Details of the EMS Exemplary Service Medal may be found in the list of links below. Please note that one of the two links details how PANB will handle the EMS ESM Award Nomination process and the other link is direct to the Governor General's Site listing details of the EMS ESM Award. PANB has sought to create a process to ensure all candidates are potentially sought out no matter whom their employer may be.
If you have any questions regarding this award or any others on this page, please contact us at the office.
