LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Les Parks upon the occa-
sion of his designation for special recognition after 57 years of  dedi-
cated  service  to  the  Youngsville Fire Department of Youngsville, New
York

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  Les
Parks upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
57  years  of  dedicated  service  to the Youngsville Fire Department of
Youngsville, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Les Parks will be honored at  the  Youngsville  Fire  Depart-
ment's  Annual  Appreciation Dinner and Dance, to be held at the Youngs-
ville Fire Hall on Saturday, April 13, 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; Les
Parks is such a firefighter; throughout 57 years of devoted service, Les
Parks has 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 Les Parks for 57 years of distinguished  service  to
the Youngsville Fire Department and his community; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Les Parks.
