LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood
upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition for his
dedicated service to the North Bellmore Fire District

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 Outgoing Chief
Douglas J. Sherwood upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition for his dedicated service to the North Bellmore Fire
District; and
WHEREAS, Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood will be honored at the
North Bellmore Fire District's Annual Installation Dinner, to be held at
the Huntington Hilton Hotel in Melville, New York on Saturday, May 18,
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
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; Outgo-
ing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood is such a firefighter; throughout his many
years of devoted service, he has 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 Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood for his distinguished service
to the North Bellmore Fire District and his community; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Outgoing Chief Douglas J. Sherwood.
