LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch upon
the occasion of his designation for special recognition after 40 years
of dedicated service to the North Amityville Fire Company, Inc. on April
27, 2013

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 Ex-Chief Firefight-
er Lon Gooch upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 40 years of dedicated service to the North Amityville Fire
Company, Inc., to be celebrated at its 73rd Annual Installation Dinner &
Awards Ceremony on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at the Hyatt Wind Watch in
Hauppauge, New York; and
WHEREAS, In addition to serving as Chief, Firefighter Lon Gooch has
also served the North Amityville Fire Company as a Captain of Fire and a
Lieutenant of Rescue, as well as Financial Secretary, during his long
tenure; 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; Lon
Gooch is such a firefighter; throughout 40 years of devoted service,
this volunteer 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 Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch for 40 years of distinguished
service to the North Amityville Fire Company and his community; and be
it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Ex-Chief Firefighter Lon Gooch.
