Peter Keillor Award
The Peter Keillor Award is the most prestigious and highest individual honour in the State Emergency Service Awards and is presented to a dedicated volunteer who has made an exemplary contribution to the SES during their time as a volunteer and specifically in the previous 12 months.
The award was named after Murray State Emergency Service Unit volunteer Peter Keillor, who used a wheelchair following an injury received during active service in Vietnam, in recognition of his courage, willpower, dedication and respect for others.
The first award was made in 1995.
Each year, Mrs Barbara Keillor presents the award to the recipient at the yearly conference.
