LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter John Harley upon the occa-
sion  of his designation for special recognition after 10 years of dedi-
cated 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 Firefighter John
Harley upon the occasion of  his  designation  for  special  recognition
after 10 years of dedicated service to the North Amityville, Fire Compa-
ny,  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,  Firefighter  John  Harley  is currently the Second Assistant
Chief of the North Amityville Fire Company; he previously  served  as  a
Third  Assistant Chief and a Captain of Fire, as well as a Lieutenant of
Rescue; 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; John
Harley is such a firefighter; throughout 10 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 Firefighter John Harley for 10 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 Firefighter John Harley.
