QFES values, supports and promotes the appropriate recognition of its workforce, paid and volunteer, across the department for their bravery, dedication and outstanding service above and beyond what is expected in their roles.
There are many honours and awards that our workforce, paid and volunteer, may be eligible for. These can be national, state or QFES awards.
This booklet outlines the honours and awards members of the QFES workforce, paid and volunteer, are eligible for that are administered by QFES. The booklet contains:
eligibility criteria for honours and awards
policy and nomination procedures for honours and awards
visual representation of each honour and award
protocols for the wearing of honours and awards.
QFES is redesigning a number of its medals to include the QFES crest. This booklet will be updated throughout 2017 to include the new medals as they are released.
New medal releases will also be announced on this page.

QFES aims to ensure that due respect is observed to its employees and their families in the event of a death of a member of QFES. The department provides recognition of operational personnel killed in the line of duty by formal notification on the Honour Roll.
The Honours and Awards team hold a stock of QFES Plaques and Challenge Coins for use as gifts on behalf of QFES. These items are available for distribution through each executive office.
