LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney
upon the occasion of his  designation  for  special  recognition  as  he
completes  his  outstanding  service  as the East Williston Fire Depart-
ment's Truck Captain

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  Outgoing  Truck
Captain  Thomas Devaney upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition as he completes his outstanding service as the  East  Willi-
ston Fire Department's Truck Captain; and
  WHEREAS,  Thomas  Devaney  will  be honored at the East Williston Fire
Department's Annual Installation Dinner to be held  on  Saturday,  April
13,  2013  at  the  Stewart  Manor  Country  Club on Salisbury Avenue in
Stewart Manor, New York; 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; Thomas
Devaney is such a firefighter; throughout  his  many  years  of  devoted
service,  this  volunteer,  Outgoing  Truck  Captain Thomas Devaney, has
heroically performed, above and beyond the call of duty, those responsi-
bilities which define the task of fire protection; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That this Legislative Body pause in  its  deliberations  to
commend  Outgoing  Truck  Captain  Thomas  Devaney for his distinguished
service to the East Williston Fire Department and his community; and  be
it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney.
