LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Outgoing  Chief Douglas J. Sherwood
upon the occasion of his designation for  special  recognition  for  his
dedicated service to the North Bellmore Fire District

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 Chief
Douglas J. Sherwood upon the occasion of  his  designation  for  special
recognition  for  his  dedicated  service  to  the  North  Bellmore Fire
District; and
  WHEREAS, Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood will  be  honored  at  the
North Bellmore Fire District's Annual Installation Dinner, to be held at
the  Huntington  Hilton Hotel in Melville, New York on Saturday, May 18,
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; Outgo-
ing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood is such a firefighter; throughout his many
years of devoted service, he has 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 Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood for his distinguished service
to the North Bellmore Fire District and his community; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood.
