LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Gilbert Faulkner 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 Gilbert
Faulkner 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;  Fire-
fighter  Gilbert  Faulkner 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  Gilbert  Faulkner  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 Gilbert Faulkner.
