“Their courage has been extraordinary, and it’s a spirit which we must honour,' said ScottMorrisonMP AustraliaDayHonours

The new National Emergency Medal is a special honour which will be awarded to emergency responders who have given sustained or significant service during the 2019-20 bushfires.

“Today as we reflect on what makes our country the best place in the world, we also honour those Australians who have battled this devastating fire season, many of whom will be on fire grounds today protecting our communities from danger,” he said. “We will continue to do whatever it takes to support fire affected communities right across Australia to help them rebuild, recover and become even stronger.”
