LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter  W. Garry Reed upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  50  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 W.
Garry Reed upon the occasion of his designation for special  recognition
after  50  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; W.
Garry Reed 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, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter W. Garry Reed for 50 years of distinguished  service
to the Fairport Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter W. Garry Reed.
