I recently acquired this Japanese firefighter badge/medal and would really appreciate it if someone could translate it for me.

@Toritoribe
I've got another one if you would be so kind. Last one, I promise! Think these might be upside down though...

the upper picture (yes, this is upside down)
表彰
commendation

the second one
島根縣
消防協會
Shimane prefecture
firefighters association

Judging from the kanji used there, this medal would be older than the initial one.

The Japan Firefighters Association was founded in 1948, and the old kanji system was used officially until around 1949, so the medal would be in those years.
