Here we go…

Congratulations go to Paul Cortese for his awarding of the 2009 Community Protection Medal (CPM). The CPM was first awarded in the ACT in 2003 and is presented each year to one member of each of AFP ACT Policing, ACT Ambulance Service, ACT Fire Brigade, ACT Rural Fire Service and ACT State Emergency Service. The CPM is awarded to recognise sustained diligent or outstanding service to the ACT community.

Paul is awarded the 2009 Community Protection Medal for his achievements during his time as a volunteer with the ACTSES. Included amongst these achievements were his role as chair, ACTSES Principal Advisory Group, his community education and community activity involvement, and his training and development of ACTSES volunteers. On behalf of all members of the ACT State Emergency Service, congratulations Paul.

then you hazarding guesses

I did state that I have been in the service for 12 years, so it’s not really a guess.

I well and truly justified it. You chose not to accept it.
