LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter Richard Keenan 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 Richard
Keenan  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; Richard
Keenan 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 Richard Keenan 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 Richard Keenan.
