LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending outgoing Fire Chief James Allen upon
the occasion of his designaton for special recognition by the North
Merrick Fire Department for his many years of dedicated service

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 Fire Chief
James Allen upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
by the North Merrick Fire Department for his many years of dedicated
service, to be celebrated at its Annual Inspection and Installation
Ceremonies on Saturday, January 26, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Long
Island Hotel, Hauppauge, New York; 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; James
Allen is such a firefighter; throughout his years of devoted service,
this volunteer 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 Fire Chief James Allen upon the occasion of his desig-
nation for special recognition by the North Merrick Fire Department for
his many years of dedicated service; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to outgoing Fire Chief James Allen.
