LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Deputy Chief Shawn Conrad for 25 years
of distinguished service to the Brewster Fire Department

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,  Firefighters exemplify the power of human compassion and the
strength of the American spirit  through  actions  of  the  most  heroic
magnitude;  their  sacrifices  and  their  selfless dedication merit the
tribute and recognition of all citizens of their community, their  State
and the Nation; 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 Deputy Chief Shawn
Conrad for 25 years  of  distinguished  service  to  the  Brewster  Fire
Department; and
  WHEREAS,  Deputy Chief Shawn Conrad was honored by the Department at a
Reception hosted by the Department at its Main Station  in  Brewster  on
April 13, 2013; 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, Deputy Chief Shawn Conrad joined the Brewster Fire Department
25 years ago and has ably served the Department in many capacities; 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;  Deputy
Chief  Shawn Conrad is such a firefighter; throughout more than 25 years
of devoted service, he 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  Deputy  Chief Shawn Conrad for his distinguished service to the
Brewster Fire Department  upon  the  occasion  of  his  designation  for
special  recognition  by  the  Department  on  April 13, 2013; and be it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Deputy Chief Shawn Conrad.
