St John Albany station manager Stacey Abbott has been honoured for her service to the organisati­on at an awards ceremony in Perth.

Ms Abbott was awarded the National Service Medal by WA Governor Kim Beazley at Government House on Thursday last week.

She was one of 29 staff members to receive the medal, alongside 13 others who received a clasp to their National Service Medals.

Four retirees were also acknowledg­ed for their service to St John and the WA Community.

St John chief executive Michelle Fyfe said 44 paramedics graduated at the ceremony, while 39 ambulance officers were inducted.

She said it was a big night for the organisati­on, with stalwarts farewelled, outstandin­g service recognised and the next generation welcomed.

“We are very grateful to all staff who were recognised this year,” Ms Fyfe said.

“This ceremony is an opportunit­y to highlight the remarkable employees at the core of St John, and their commitment to the WA community.”

Jerramungu­p community paramedic Andrew Brooker was another staff member to receive a National Service Medal.
