LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter Robert Edwards upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  60  years  of
dedicated service to the Youngsville 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 Robert
Edwards upon the occasion of his  designation  for  special  recognition
after  60 years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department,
to be celebrated at its Appreciation Dinner and Dance on Saturday, April
12, 2014, at the Youngsville Fire House, Youngsville, 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; Robert
Edwards is such a firefighter; throughout 60 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  Robert  Edwards  for  60  years  of  distinguished
service; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Robert Edwards.
