LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Chief  William Rieg for 40 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 Chief William  Rieg
for  40  years of distinguished service to the Brewster Fire Department;
and
  WHEREAS, Chief William Rieg was honored by the Department at a  Recep-
tion  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, Chief William Rieg joined the  Brewster  Fire  Department  40
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;  Chief
William  Rieg  is  such  a firefighter; throughout more than 40 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 Chief William Rieg for his distinguished service to the Brewster
Fire  Department upon the occasion of his designation for special recog-
nition by the Department on April 13, 2013; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Chief William Rieg.
