LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Ex Chief Ronald Sopp upon the occasion
of  his  designation  for  special recognition after 25 years of distin-
guished service to the Stewart Manor Fire Department, on May 4, 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  Ex  Chief  Ronald
Sopp  upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
25 years of distinguished service to the Stewart Manor Fire  Department,
to  be  celebrated  at  the Department's 86th Annual Chiefs installation
Dinner, Saturday, May 4, 2013, at the Stewart Manor Country Club; 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; Ex
Chief Ronald Sopp is such a firefighter;  throughout  his  25  years  of
devoted  service, he has heroically performed, above and beyond the call
of  duty,  those  responsibilities  which  define  the  task   of   fire
protection; and
  WHEREAS,  Firefighters exemplify the power of human compassion and the
strength of the American spirit  through  actions  of  the  most  heroic
magnitude;  their  sacrifices  and  their  selfless dedication merit the
tribute and recognition of all citizens of their community, their  State
and their Nation; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Ex Chief Ronald Sopp upon the occasion of  his  designation  for
special  recognition  after  25  years  of  distinguished service to the
Stewart Manor Fire Department and his community; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Ex Chief Ronald Sopp.
