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

Charter  Member of Forestburgh Fire Company No.1, Forestburgh, New York,
upon the occasion of his designation for special  recognition  after  50
years of dedicated service; and
  WHEREAS,  Thomas McCormick will be honored at Forestburgh Fire Company
No. 1's 50th Annual Fire Company Dinner,  to  be  held  at  Mr.  Willy's
Restaurant in Monticello, New York on Saturday, April 20, 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

and  a  tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with family

McCormick is such a firefighter; throughout 50 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,  there-
