LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending Firefighter Richard E. Comstock upon
the occasion of his designation for special recognition after  50  years
of dedicated service to the Wellsburg 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, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Firefighter Richard
E.    Comstock upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 50 years of dedicated service to the Wellsburg  Fire  Depart-
ment, to be celebrated with a banquet on Saturday, March 22, 2014; and
  WHEREAS,  Richard  E. Comstock began his distinguished career with the
Wellsburg Fire Department in Wellsburg, New York in July of 1962; and
  WHEREAS, This esteemed man has held many important  positions  in  the
Wellsburg  Fire Department over the years, serving as Captain, Assistant
Chief, and Fire Chief; he has also served  in  the  executive  roles  of
Department Secretary, Vice President, and President; 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  Richard  E.  Comstock  is such a firefighter; throughout his 50
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  Richard  E. Comstock for 50 years of distinguished
service to the Wellsburg Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Richard E. Comstock.
