Professor Steve Bernard receives Australia Day honours for his distinguished service to the Ambulance Service.
The Ambulance Service Medal was introduced into the Australian system of honours in 1999.
The Ambulance Service Medal is circular and of silver and bronze tones. The front of the medal displays the Federation Star superimposed on a modified Maltese Cross, which is representative of ambulance services. This rests on a bed of Australian wattle.
The Federation Star is surrounded by twenty-four balls signifying the twenty-four hours per day the Ambulance Service is available to the community.
The back of the medal bears the inscription ‘For Distinguished Service’.
