LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Chief Robert Podesta upon the
occasion  of  his  designation for special recognition for his dedicated
service to the Seaford 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
Robert Podesta upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion for his dedicated service to the Seaford Fire District; and
  WHEREAS,  Outgoing Chief Robert Podesta will be honored at the Seaford
Fire District's Annual Installation Dinner, to  be  held  at  Milleridge
Cottage in Jericho, New York on Saturday, April 27, 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  Robert  Podesta  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 Robert Podesta for his distinguished service to
the Seaford Fire District and his community; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Outgoing Chief Robert Podesta.
