LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Glenn W. Cooper upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of
dedicated service to Southport 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, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Firefighter Glenn
W. Cooper upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to Southport Fire Department to be
celebrated at a banquet on Saturday, February 16, 2013; and
WHEREAS, Glenn W. Cooper joined the Southport Fire Department on
September 4, 1962; and
WHEREAS, In addition, Glenn W. Cooper served as a Fire Instructor in
Chemung County for 23 years, before retiring on December 30, 2002; 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; Glenn
W. Cooper is such a firefighter; throughout 50 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 Firefighter Glenn W. Cooper for 50 years of distinguished
service; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Glenn W. Cooper.
