LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  outgoing  Fire Chief Robert Von Werne
after many years of distinguished service to  the  New  Hyde  Park  Fire
Department

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,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is proud  to  honor  outgoing
Fire  Chief  Robert Von Werne after 21 years of distinguished service to
the New Hyde Park Fire Department to be celebrated at its Annual Instal-
lation Dinner on Saturday, February 9, 2013, at  The  Inn  at  New  Hyde
Park, New Hyde Park, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  Robert  Von  Werne  was  appointed to the New Hyde Park Fire
Department on March 5, 1991; he served as Chief of the  Department  from
2008 until 2012; 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
Von Werne is such a firefighter; throughout 21 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
honor outgoing Fire Chief Robert Von Werne after many years  of  distin-
guished service to the New Hyde Park Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to outgoing Fire Chief Robert Von Werne.
