The Society's Certificates

Currently the Society’s awards, which reflect the degree of risk faced and the level of bravery shown by rescuers, consist of silver medals, bronze medals, silver in memoriam medallions, parchments, certificates, resuscitation certificates, in memoriam certificates and letters of commendation.
When the committee consider that the level of bravery and risk is of lesser degree than that meriting the award of a medal, there are a number of awards that the Society can make consisting of a Parchment, a Certificate or a Letter of Commendation.

Introduced into the award structure of the Society in 1955 the Resuscitation Certificate measures 210 mm wide by 299 mm long and is framed and glazed. The lettering is all in black with a black border.
