LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter Robert Edwards upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  59  years  of
dedicated 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 Robert
Edwards upon the occasion of his  designation  for  special  recognition
after  59  years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department
of Youngsville, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Robert Edwards  will  be  honored  at  the  Youngsville  Fire
Department's  Annual  Appreciation  Dinner  and Dance, to be held at the
Youngsville 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; Robert
Edwards is such a firefighter; throughout 59 years of  devoted  service,
Robert  Edwards 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 Firefighter Robert Edwards for 59 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 Robert Edwards.
