Teledyne Marine Sales Manager Presented with High Honor
Teledyne Marine announces that Mr. Alan Koong, Sales Manager for Teledyne Marine in Singapore, was recently awarded the Public Service Medal for commendable public service.
Mr. William Egan, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Imaging & Instruments at Teledyne Marine, responded to the announcement, “On behalf of everyone at Teledyne Marine, I am delighted to congratulate Alan on his well-deserved prestigious National Award.”
The Public Service Medal was initially instituted in 1973 for those who have rendered commendable public services in Singapore for their achievements in science, business, arts, sports, and professions of the labor movement. Mr. Koong was awarded the prestigious medal for his work in leadership as the Chairman of the Potong Pasir Community Emergency and Engagement Committee.
Mr. Koong has served on multiple grassroots community organizations. Under his leadership, he has recruited countless volunteers and worked in education and outreach to residents through first aid and life support courses. During the Covid-19 pandemic, he continued to serve the community by actively engaging the seniors through house visits and encouraging them to be vaccinated. He has spearheaded many grassroots events under Potong Pasir C2E. One of those successful events that were well received by residents is CPR and AED courses, now a flagship event held quarterly for the constituency. Besides providing lifesaving training to residents, Mr. Koong has organized several blood drives to educate and encourage residents to donate blood and save lives.
Mr. Koong has maintained strong relationships with Potong Pasir's community partners through several collaborations. During the pre-Covid period, he organized firefighting and fire evacuation drills in condominiums and worked closely with the Management Corporation Strata Title Councils. He continues to solicit feedback from residents and has initiated many events to educate the community and tenants on the importance of emergency preparedness. He has contributed significantly to Potong Pasir CCC activities, including the festive celebrations of the Chinese New Year, National Day, and Year End Celebrations. The award will be presented to Mr. Koong on November 27, 2022, during the Investiture of 2022 National Day Awards. The honor will be bestowed by the President of Singapore, Mdm Halimah Yacob.
