LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch upon
the occasion of his designation for special recognition after  40  years
of dedicated service to the North Amityville Fire Company, Inc. on April
27, 2013

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 Ex-Chief Firefight-
er  Lon  Gooch upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 40 years of dedicated service to the  North  Amityville  Fire
Company, Inc., to be celebrated at its 73rd Annual Installation Dinner &
Awards  Ceremony on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at the Hyatt Wind Watch in
Hauppauge, New York; and
  WHEREAS, In addition to serving as Chief, Firefighter  Lon  Gooch  has
also served the North Amityville Fire Company as a Captain of Fire and a
Lieutenant  of  Rescue,  as well as Financial Secretary, during his long
tenure; 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; Lon
Gooch is such a firefighter; throughout 40  years  of  devoted  service,
this  volunteer  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 Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch for  40  years  of  distinguished
service  to  the North Amityville Fire Company and his community; and be
it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch.
