The Lifesaving Medal is awarded to officers who perform a lifesaving act under extraordinary circumstances. It shall be awarded only on an order from the Chief, and only after the Review Board confirms the following circumstances:
1. The officer took direct, immediate, and positive action to preserve the life of another human being who was in danger of dying.
2. The action taken did prevent the loss of a human life.
3. The circumstances of the act were such that any delay in providing assistance would, in all probability, have resulted in the person’s death.
This award shall not duplicate any other award, with the exception of the Service Award, given to the same officer for the same incident.
The award will include a medal, a service ribbon, and a certificate with the written description of the event.
