occasion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of
dedicated service to the Westport Volunteer Fire Department

WHEREAS, The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout the
Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the arduous
field of fire protection and prevention; and
WHEREAS, Since the early days of "teapot steamers," the volunteer
firefighter has been the cornerstone of our great Nation's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Firefighter Dale L.
Moss upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
50 years of dedicated service to the Westport Volunteer Fire Department
to be celebrated at the Department's Firemen's Banquet on Saturday, May
24, 2014; and
WHEREAS, An active member of the Westport Volunteer Fire Department,
Firefighter Dale L. Moss was also a member of its Emergency Squad; and
WHEREAS, In addition to serving his community, Firefighter Dale L.
Moss served his country as a member of the United States Air Force
during the Korean War; and
WHEREAS, Volunteer firefighters and fire departments not only provide
the critical service of fire protection but also engage in other activ-
ities of great benefit and importance to the communities they serve; and
WHEREAS, It takes a special dedication, a strong desire to help others
and a tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with family
and friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need; Dale L.
Moss is such a firefighter; throughout 50 years of devoted service, this
volunteer heroically performed, above and beyond the call of duty, those
responsibilities which define the task of fire protection; now, there-
fore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter Dale L. Moss for 50 years of distinguished service;
and be it further
