Making a Nomination


Do you know someone who has put his or her life at risk to save, or attempt to save, another person, or someone who has carried out a successful resuscitation?

Do you know someone who has saved a life by timely first aid, such as stopping arterial bleeding?

Anyone can make a nomination to us and we would like to hear from you, whether you work for the emergency services or are a member of the public. After we have received your nomination, the committee will decide, at its next quarterly Awards Committee Meeting, which level of award should be made.

For a nomination to be considered at the quarterly meetings, it should be received no later than 4 weeks before the meeting date. Nominations received after this time will be considered at the following Awards Committee Meeting.
