LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring outgoing Fire Chief Robert Von Werne
after many years of distinguished service to the New Hyde Park Fire
Department

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, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is proud to honor outgoing
Fire Chief Robert Von Werne after 21 years of distinguished service to
the New Hyde Park Fire Department to be celebrated at its Annual Instal-
lation Dinner on Saturday, February 9, 2013, at The Inn at New Hyde
Park, New Hyde Park, New York; and
WHEREAS, Robert Von Werne was appointed to the New Hyde Park Fire
Department on March 5, 1991; he served as Chief of the Department from
2008 until 2012; 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
Von Werne is such a firefighter; throughout 21 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
honor outgoing Fire Chief Robert Von Werne after many years of distin-
guished service to the New Hyde Park Fire Department; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to outgoing Fire Chief Robert Von Werne.
