LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Hugh-
sonville Fire Department

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commemorate the  100th  Anni-
versary  of  the  Hughsonville Fire Department and to honor its past and
present firefighting members for 100 years of  fire  protection  to  the
citizens of the Town of Wappinger, New York and its surrounding communi-
ties; and
  WHEREAS,  This  Legislative  Body  is also justly proud to commend the
Hughsonville Fire Department for  its  assistance  and  support  in  the
September  11th  cleanup  and, more recently, for its assistance on Long
Island helping Massapequa, New York with the  cleanup  after  Superstorm
Sandy; and
  WHEREAS, Fire departments are an integral part of community protection
services  in every locality of our State; during the past 100 years, the
courageous and devoted firefighters of the Hughsonville Fire  Department
have  valiantly  responded to all types of fire emergencies and have won
the praise and respect of the community which they serve; and
  WHEREAS, With a membership of dedicated firefighters,  the  record  of
the  Hughsonville  Fire Department in public service and fire protection
is one to be envied; for 24 hours a day, for 365 days a  year,  for  100
years,  whenever  the  alarm  sounded, these noble volunteers left their
homes and went to the aid of their neighbors; and
  WHEREAS, The brave firefighters of the  Hughsonville  Fire  Department
are  prepared  to  risk  their lives every day to help save the lives of
others and to protect homes and property from the destruction caused  by
fire; and
  WHEREAS,  In addition to the skill and devoted service demonstrated by
individual firefighters, the Hughsonville Fire Department  reflects  the
history and development of firefighting over the past 100 years; and
  WHEREAS,  This Legislative Body cannot express sufficient gratitude to
those devoted individuals who recognize that the  preservation  of  life
and property is a sacred responsibility and who make that responsibility
their own by serving as firefighters; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body that we should give
special recognition to those who work so assiduously for the  betterment
of  their  communities,  and  acknowledge publicly the heroic good works
performed by the volunteer fire departments of this great Empire  State,
their officers and auxiliaries; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
proudly commemorate the  100th  Anniversary  of  the  Hughsonville  Fire
Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Hughsonville Fire Department.
