LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending outgoing Fire Chief James Allen upon
the occasion of his designaton for  special  recognition  by  the  North
Merrick Fire Department for his many years of dedicated service

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 outgoing Fire Chief
James Allen upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
by  the  North  Merrick  Fire Department for his many years of dedicated
service, to be celebrated at  its  Annual  Inspection  and  Installation
Ceremonies  on  Saturday,  January  26,  2013, at the Hyatt Regency Long
Island Hotel, Hauppauge, New York; 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; James
Allen is such a firefighter; throughout his years  of  devoted  service,
this  volunteer 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 outgoing Fire Chief James Allen upon the occasion of his  desig-
nation  for special recognition by the North Merrick Fire Department for
his many years of dedicated service; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to outgoing Fire Chief James Allen.
