LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Gary West upon the occa-
sion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of  dedi-
cated 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 Gary
West upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition  after
50  years of dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company
of Queensbury, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Gary West, owner of the G.A. Sign Company  in  Hudson  Falls,
has served the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company as Chief and is current-
ly the company's Safety Officer; 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;  Gary
West  is such a firefighter; throughout his 50 years of devoted service,
Gary West 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 Gary West for 50 years of distinguished service; and
be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Gary West.
