LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Firefighter Theodore Scardino of the
West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association for his valiant service
while responding to a call on December 24, 2012

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to pay tribute to
citizens of the State of New York whose lifework and civic endeavor
served to enhance the quality of life in their communities and the great
State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Citizens across our State and Nation are inspired by and
indebted to our noble firefighters who exhibit courage and bravery every
day in the course of their duties; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to honor Firefighter
Theodore Scardino of the West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association
for his valiant service while responding to a call on December 24, 2012;
and
WHEREAS, 48 year-old Theodore Scardino earned his associate's degree
in Business and Computers, and has honorably served as a volunteer for
the West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association for the past year and
one-half; and
WHEREAS, Throughout his tenure, Theodore Scardino has gone about his
duties quietly and purposefully, devoting a significant amount of his
time to the Firemen's association; and
WHEREAS, Theodore Scardino is a former member of the Laurelton Volun-
teer Fire Department in Rochester, New York, and recently completed his
Firefighter 1 training; and
WHEREAS, In faithful service to his community, Firefighter Theodore
Scardino was wounded in the line of duty after responding to an emergen-
cy call on December 24, 2012; and
WHEREAS, Firefighter Theodore Scardino should be meritoriously
commended for taking prompt and appropriate action in an emergency situ-
ation, remaining calm under pressure, in an effort to protect the citi-
zens he so ably serves; and
WHEREAS, With him throughout have been his wife, Karen, and their
three beloved children, Christina, Robert and Austin, all of whom feel
privileged to be a part of his life and rejoice in his achievements; 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; Theo-
dore Scardino 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
honor Firefighter Theodore Scardino of the West Webster Volunteer Fire-
men's Association for his valiant service while responding to a call on
December 24, 2012; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Theodore Scardino.
