LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Joseph Remy upon the occa-
sion  of his designation for special recognition after 45 years of dedi-
cated service to the South Hempstead 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  Joseph  Remy  upon
the  occasion  of his designation for special recognition after 45 years
of dedicated service to the South Hempstead Fire Department; and
  WHEREAS, Joseph Remy has been a member of  the  South  Hempstead  Fire
Department  since  1967;  he  proudly held the rank of Chief in 1977 and
served as a Commissioner for 20 years, from 1974-1994; and
  WHEREAS, He will be honored at the South Hempstead  Fire  Department's
Annual  Installation  Dinner to be held at the Hempstead Country Club in
Hempstead, New York on Friday, April 5, 2013; 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

Remy is such a firefighter; throughout 45 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,  there-
