Mike Moore
Claymont Fire Company
10/22/2008 - December 29, 1942-October 22, 2008

Mike Moore, 65, of Wilmington, DE died Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at Christiana Hospital after a lengthy illness.

He was a son of the late James A. and Mary Margaret Moore of Newark, DE. Mike loved and devoted 48 years to the emergency services as a Firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and educator. He began his vocation as a Firefighter for the Claymont Fire Company in 1960, serving for many years as their training officer and remaining an active member until retiring in 2003 due to disability. He was also a Firefighter/EMT for the Modena, PA Fire Company and was employed as an EMT at the Avondale and Longwood, PA Fire Companies, the city of Wilmington, and the city of Chester. Mike provided medical coverage for various concerts and sporting events with NES Event Medical.

A knowledgeable and talented instructor, Mike taught countless Firefighters, rescue workers, and EMS providers from across Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. He was an instructor for the Delaware State Fire School for almost 30 years. He developed and taught technical rescue courses for Rescue Training Associates. A committed CPR/First Aid instructor for the Delaware Chapter of the American Red Cross (1962 - 2008) and a CPR instructor and trainer for the American Red Cross (1980 - 2008) he taught hundreds of courses to countless personnel. As an EMS instructor for the PA Department of Health Mike participated in starting two successful EMT training programs in Delaware County and the city of Philadelphia. He was a water rescue instructor for the PA Fish and Boat Commission, and a DNREC water rescue/boating safety instructor. Mike visited and ''rode along'' with Fire Departments all over the United States, US Virgin Islands, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, Australia, Canada, Tahiti, and Sweden. He frequently taught impromptu classes while visiting with these firefighters who were eager to learn from him. Mike proudly volunteered at the World Trade Center site after the September 11 attacks helping his brother firefighters sort through the wreckage, doing whatever he could to help. Outside the Fire Service Mike was a teacher at the New Castle County VoTech School District from 1977 - 2000 and he belonged to the Local Union 313, I.B.E.W. from 1960 - 2008. He served in the Delaware Army National Guard from 1966 - 1971.

Mike will be carried on a Claymont fire truck from Mealey Funeral Home, Limestone and Milltown Roads, back home to his fire station in Claymont in a full Firefighter's funeral procession on Saturday, October 25, 2008 at 10 am. A memorial service honoring Mike will follow at 11 am at the Cohee Memorial Hall of the Claymont Fire Company, 3223 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE.
