Three members of the XSite Braehead team have been presented with the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal in recognition of their services as first responders.

XSite Breahead’s first responders have been specially trained by the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service and the Scottish Ambulance Service to deal with certain kinds of emergencies and provide assistance and reassurance until emergency services arrive.

Acting as a token of the nation’s thanks, the Platinum Jubilee Medal follows a long history of awarding medals to mark Royal Jubilees, with the first one awarded to mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1887.
