LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  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

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;
