Royal Life Saving Bravery Awards

2019 Bravery Awards Winners gathered together at the State Reception Centre

Recognising our brave heroes of rescue & resuscitation

Daniel Crook with friend Michael at the Bravery Awards in Kings ParkThe Royal Life Saving Bravery Awards are designed to recognise and acknowledge the efforts and actions of everyday people within the community who have performed a rescue and/or resuscitation, applying their knowledge to save another’s life.

One of the recipients in 2019 was Daniel Crook, who performed CPR for 13 minutes on his friend, Michael, who suddenly collapsed at home. Paramedics credited Daniel for saving Michael's life, and Royal Life Saving WA presented him with a Gold Medallion Bravery Award for his efforts. 

This is just one example of heroism demonstrated by everyday lifesavers all over WA – if you know of someone who deserves recognition for an act of bravery, nominate them today!

Do you know someone who deserves a Bravery Award?

Nominations for the 2020 Bravery Awards can be made by anyone who has information about the incident, at any time of the year. Individuals can be nominated for brave acts that occur in any environment and nominations for those who have demonstrated use of qualifications such as resuscitation, first aid, bronze medallion, pool lifeguard etc. are encouraged. 

The Royal Life Saving Society WA Honours and Awards Committee assesses each nomination and approves awards based on the criteria outlined in the Bravery Awards Structure. Every action is courageous, as is the person behind the action. So why not become a part of something inspiring?
