LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Rita  George,  Brian  Edmister, and
Robert Ford in recognition of their heroic actions in saving the life of
a Genesee Valley Central School District student

WHEREAS, It is the sense of  this  Legislative  Body  to  recognize  the
caring  concern  and  heroic  acts  of those exemplary citizens who take
prompt and appropriate action in emergency situations and, in so  doing,
preserve the lives of others; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commend
Rita  George,  Brian  Edmister,  and Robert Ford in recognition of their
heroic actions in saving the life of a Genesee Valley student; and
  WHEREAS, On February 13, 2014, a student  at  Genesee  Valley  Central
School  District  suffered a cardiac arrest while lifting weights in the
gym after school; due to the  swift  and  professional  actions  of  the
school  nurse, Rita George, the kindergarten through sixth grade princi-
pal, Brian Edmister, and a college and former  Genesee  Valley  student,
Robert Ford, the student's life was saved; and
  WHEREAS,  Robert  Ford  witnessed  the  cardiac arrest and immediately
requested help which initiated the rescue of the  student's  life;  Rita
George  and  Brian  Edmister  then administered cardiopulmonary resusci-
tation (CPR) and the Automated External Defibrillator  (AED)  until  the
rescue crew arrived; and
  WHEREAS,  Rita  George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford, through their
spontaneous  and  heroic  actions,  demonstrated  their  character   and
compassion  for  the  welfare of others; the life of a student was saved
due to the virtue of their behavior and the collective concern of  ordi-
nary citizens across the community of the State of New York; now, there-
fore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford in  recognition  of
their  heroic  actions  in  saving  the life of a Genesee Valley Central
School District student on February 13, 2014; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford.
