LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Robert Edwards upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 59 years of
dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department of Youngsville, New
York

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 Robert
Edwards upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 59 years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department
of Youngsville, New York; and
WHEREAS, Robert Edwards will be honored at the Youngsville Fire
Department's Annual Appreciation Dinner and Dance, to be held at the
Youngsville Fire Hall on Saturday, April 13, 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; Robert
Edwards is such a firefighter; throughout 59 years of devoted service,
Robert Edwards 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 Robert Edwards for 59 years of distinguished service
to the Youngsville Fire Department and his community; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Robert Edwards.
