LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter Allen Williams upon the
occasion of his designation as Firefighter of the Year by the  Roosevelt
Fire Department of Roosevelt, New York, on April 20, 2013

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 Allen
Williams upon the occasion of his designation as Firefighter of the Year
by the Roosevelt Fire Department of Roosevelt, New York, which was cele-
brated at its Annual Installation Dinner on April 20, 2013, at the Coral
House, Baldwin, 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; Allen
Williams is such a firefighter; throughout  his  devoted  service,  this
volunteer  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 Allen Williams upon the occasion of his  designation
as  Firefighter  of  the Year by the Roosevelt Fire Department of Roose-
velt, New York; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Allen Williams.
