Peter Van Geloven Awarded National Medal

KPA Architects are honoured to announce our Documentation Manager, Peter Van Geloven, received The National Medal for Service through the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, after 19 years of voluntary Fire and Rescue services.

‘The National Medal recognises long and diligent service by members of recognised government and voluntary organisations that risk their lives or safety to protect or assist the community in enforcement of the law or in times of emergency  or natural disaster. This includes government organisations such as ambulance, correctional, emergency, fire and police forces, and voluntary organisations such as lifesaving or search and rescue group.’

The Governor-General awards the National Medal and nominations are made by the Chief Officer of the nominee’s organisation.

Congratulations Peter! Thank you for providing support and care for others in emergencies. Very selfless and well deserved.
