LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Honorary Chief George Hechler upon the
occasion  of  his  designation for special recognition after 65 years of
dedicated service to the East Islip 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, This Legislative Body is  proud  to  commend  Honorary  Chief
George Hechler upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion  after 65 years of dedicated service to the East Islip Fire Depart-
ment, to be celebrated  at  the  East  Islip  Fire  Department's  Annual
Installation Dinner, on Saturday, February 22, 2014; 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,  Honorary  Chief George Hechler has been a member of the East
Islip Fire Department for 65 years, joining in 1949 after attending East
Islip High School; and
  WHEREAS, Honorary Chief George  Hechler  served  his  country  in  the
United States Army and is a veteran of the Korean War; he further served
in  the  Suffolk County Police Department obtaining the rank of captain,
until his retirement in 1989; 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; George
Hechler is such a firefighter; throughout 65 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 Honorary Chief George Hechler upon the occasion  of  his  desig-
nation  for  special  recognition after 65 years of dedicated service to
East Islip Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
