The Silver Lifesaving Medal is issued by the United States Coast Guard. The awards were first established by Act of Congress, June 20, 1874; later authorized by 14 U.S.C. § 500. The decoration is of the oldest medals in the United States and was originally established at the Department of Treasury as Lifesaving Medals First and Second Class. The Department of the Treasury initially gave the award, but today the United States Coast Guard awards it through the Department of Homeland Security. It is not classified as a military decoration, and may be awarded to any person.
