LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter James Erbland posthumously
upon  the  occasion  of his designation for special recognition after 55
years of dedicated service to the Fairport 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  James
Erbland  posthumously  upon  the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 55 years of dedicated service  to  the  Fairport  Fire
Department to be celebrated at its Annual Banquet on Saturday, March 30,
2013; 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;  James
Erbland  was such a firefighter; throughout 55 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  James Erbland posthumously for 55 years of distin-
guished service to the Fairport Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the family of the late James Erbland.
