Taylor Vecsey, the captain of the Bridgehampton Fire Department’s EMS company, was honored with both the Nancy Makson EMS Award of Excellence and the Ralph Oswald Distinction for Inspirational Leadership, when the Southampton Town EMS Advisory Committee held its ninth annual awards dinner on May 11.
The celebratory evening was presided over by Violetta Zamorski, chairwoman of the committee, and was held at The Coast Grill on Noyac Road in North Sea.
EMS agencies that serve throughout the town were asked to nominate members for the awards. Six others received accolades.
Vecsey has been a member of the Bridgehampton Fire Department since 2010 and has served as the EMS company’s captain for the past three years.
In addition to receiving both the Nancy Makson Award of Excellence and the Ralph Oswald Distinction for Inspiration Leadership, Vescey received a proclamation from Southampton Town honoring her for her service. That proclamation was presented by Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni.
