LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter  Edward McGill upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  37  years  of
dedicated service to the Otterkill Engine Company No. 1

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 Edward
McGill upon the occasion of  his  designation  for  special  recognition
after  37 years of dedicated service to the Otterkill Engine Company No.
1 to be celebrated at its Annual Banquet on Saturday, November 1,  2014;
and
  WHEREAS,  Edward  McGill  joined the Otterkill Engine Company No. 1 in
1976; 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; Edward
McGill is such a firefighter; throughout 37 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 Edward McGill for 37 years of distinguished service;
and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Edward McGill.
