CENTER MORICHES, NY - The Center Moriches Fire Department recently held their annual installation and awards dinner at a local venue. While some may see a fire department dinner as just a night for the guys and ladies to get together and have fun, this is also a night to honor those who volunteer and serve their communities and take time away from their familes.
At the events, politicians are invited and tend to give out procamations and/or awards to members for various things such as years of service or life saves. It is also a night for the departments to honor the new chiefs and officers and have them take oaths of office, and most importantly for the members to be honored for various services to the departments. Awards were handed out for years of service, probationary firefighter of the year, firefighter of the year, and more.
