LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter  Charles Ogden upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  52  years  of
dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company

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 Charles
Ogden upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
52  years of dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company
of Queensbury, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Charles Ogden, a retired supervisor at Sandy Hill Corp.,  has
served  the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company as Chief and is currently a
member of its Board of Directors; 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; Charles
Ogden is such a firefighter; throughout his 52 years of devoted service,
Charles  Ogden  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 Charles Ogden for 52 years of distinguished service;
and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Charles Ogden.
