LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Honorary Chief George Hechler upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 65 years of
dedicated service to the East Islip 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, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Honorary Chief
George Hechler upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 65 years of dedicated service to the East Islip Fire Depart-
ment, to be celebrated at the East Islip Fire Department's Annual
Installation Dinner, on Saturday, February 22, 2014; 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, Honorary Chief George Hechler has been a member of the East
Islip Fire Department for 65 years, joining in 1949 after attending East
Islip High School; and
WHEREAS, Honorary Chief George Hechler served his country in the
United States Army and is a veteran of the Korean War; he further served
in the Suffolk County Police Department obtaining the rank of captain,
until his retirement in 1989; 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; George
Hechler is such a firefighter; throughout 65 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 Honorary Chief George Hechler upon the occasion of his desig-
nation for special recognition after 65 years of dedicated service to
East Islip Fire Department; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Honorary Chief George Hechler.
