LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Gary West upon the occa-
sion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of dedi-
cated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company

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 Gary
West upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
50 years of dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company
of Queensbury, New York; and
WHEREAS, Gary West, owner of the G.A. Sign Company in Hudson Falls,
has served the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company as Chief and is current-
ly the company's Safety Officer; 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; Gary
West is such a firefighter; throughout his 50 years of devoted service,
Gary West 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 Firefighter Gary West for 50 years of distinguished service; and
be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Gary West.
