LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Bruce Hoskins upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of
dedicated service to Westport Hose Company

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 Bruce
Hoskins upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to Westport Hose Company to be cele-
brated Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the Westport Hose Company Banquet; and
WHEREAS, Bruce Hoskins joined the Westport Hose Company on May 1,
1963; in addition to serving as a firefighter, he served many years as
the treasurer of the Westport Hose Company, volunteered for the emergen-
cy squad, and continues to serve as a member of the Westport Hose Compa-
ny Fire Police; 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, Bruce Hoskins has been married to his loving wife, Nona, for
57 years; they are the proud parents of seven children, David, Kathe-
rine, Tammy, Cheryl, Peggy, Robert, and Willie, and eight grandchildren;
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; Bruce
Hoskins 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,
therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter Bruce Hoskins for 50 years of distinguished service;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Bruce Hoskins.
