LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Robert Wade Jr. upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  20  years  of
dedicated  service  to  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  Robert
Wade  Jr.  upon  the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 20 years of dedicated service to 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; Robert
Wade Jr. is such a firefighter; throughout 20 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  Wade  Jr.  for  20  years  of  distinguished
service  to 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 Firefighter Robert Wade Jr.
