LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Kenneth Riddick upon the
occasion of his designation as Probationary 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 Kenneth
Riddick upon the occasion of his designation as Probationary Firefighter
of  the  Year  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; Kenneth
Riddick 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 Kenneth Riddick upon the occasion of his designation
as Probationary Firefighter of the Year 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 Firefighter Kenneth Riddick.
