LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Barnard, New York, past Fire Chief
Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 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, Born on August 29, 1916, Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt served as
Barnard, New York, Fire Chief from 1955 to 1957; and
WHEREAS, Joining the Barnard Fire Department on July 2, 1945, Clarence
"Buzz" Hoyt became a member of the Barnard Exempt Firemen's Association
on December 2, 1963; and
WHEREAS, Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt was employed by the Eastman Kodak Compa-
ny in the Naval Ordinance Division in Rochester, New York, and then for
Johnson and Johnson; and
WHEREAS, The oldest living Barnard past Fire Chief, Clarence "Buzz"
Hoyt is also the oldest living past Fire Chief in Monroe County, New
York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Barnard, New York, past Fire Chief Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt upon the occa-
sion of his designation for special recognition after many years of
dedicated service; this auspicious occasion will be celebrated on Satur-
day, May 18, 2013, at the Barnard Fire Department's Exempt Banquet; 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; past
Fire Chief Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt is such a firefighter; throughout his
many 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 Barnard, New York, past Fire Chief Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after many years of
dedicated service; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Clarence "Buzz" Hoyt.
