LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Robert Stackrow upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  50  years  of
dedicated  service  to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment

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  Robert
Stackrow  upon  the  occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volun-
teer Fire Department at its Installation  Dinner  on  Saturday,  May  4,
2013; and
  WHEREAS,  Robert  Stackrow joined the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer
Fire Department in 1962; for 50 years he has  been  a  First  Responder,
Interior  Firefighter,  Apparatus Driver and Pump Operator; he has taken
on leadership as well, serving as a line officer and as President of the
Fire Company; and
  WHEREAS, In addition, Firefighter Robert Stackrow is a 20 year  member
of  the  Board of Fire Commissioners, 10 of which he served as Chairman;
during his productive tenure with this esteemed Board he stabilized  and
transformed the finances of the Fire District, which resulted in signif-
icant  savings  to  the  taxpayer  and greater fiscal well-being for the
community; 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 people 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; Robert
Stackrow is such a firefighter; throughout 50 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 Firefighter  Robert  Stackrow  for  50  years  of  distinguished
service  to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer Fire Department; and be
it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Robert Stackrow.
