LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts
upon the occasion of his designation  for  special  recognition  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 Outgoing Chief
Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts upon the occasion of his designation for  special
recognition  by  the  Roosevelt  Fire Department of Roosevelt, New York,
which was celebrated 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;  Chief
Thomas  Wiltshire-Pitts  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  Outgoing  Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts upon the occasion of his
designation for special recognition by the Roosevelt Fire Department  of
Roosevelt, New York; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts.
