Medal for Heroism

The Medal for Heroism may be presented by the National Society, a state society, or a chapter for acts of outstanding bravery and self-sacrifice in the face of imminent danger, i.e., acts which involve great personal courage and risk to the recipient. It is intended primarily for acts by civilians not in uniform but does not exclude police, firemen, and SAR members.


The medal is in bronze and is similar in design to the Good Citizenship Medal but is inscribed, "Heroism." It is worn suspended from a chest ribbon of the SAR colors.


Additional information regarding the SAR Emergency Medical Services Commendation Medal can be found in the SAR Handbook, Volume III.
