LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Roy Wood 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  Roy
Wood  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, Roy Wood 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;  Roy
Wood  is such a firefighter; throughout 59 years of devoted service, Roy
Wood 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  Roy  Wood for 59 years of distinguished service to
the Youngsville Fire Department and his community; and be it further
