The Lifesaving Medal (German language: Rettungsmedaille am Band) was a civil decoration of the Kingdom of Prussia. Established 1 February 1833, it was awarded to individuals who had saved another person's life, at risk to their own. This medal is referred to the Lifesaving Medal on Band to differentiate it from a previous non-portable award established in 1802.
