LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter John Peck upon the occa-
sion of his designation for special recognition after 55 years of  dedi-
cated 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 John
Peck 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; John
Peck is 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,  there-
fore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter John Peck for 55 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 John Peck.
