LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Rita George, Brian Edmister, and
Robert Ford in recognition of their heroic actions in saving the life of
a Genesee Valley Central School District student

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize the
caring concern and heroic acts of those exemplary citizens who take
prompt and appropriate action in emergency situations and, in so doing,
preserve the lives of others; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford in recognition of their
heroic actions in saving the life of a Genesee Valley student; and
WHEREAS, On February 13, 2014, a student at Genesee Valley Central
School District suffered a cardiac arrest while lifting weights in the
gym after school; due to the swift and professional actions of the
school nurse, Rita George, the kindergarten through sixth grade princi-
pal, Brian Edmister, and a college and former Genesee Valley student,
Robert Ford, the student's life was saved; and
WHEREAS, Robert Ford witnessed the cardiac arrest and immediately
requested help which initiated the rescue of the student's life; Rita
George and Brian Edmister then administered cardiopulmonary resusci-
tation (CPR) and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) until the
rescue crew arrived; and
WHEREAS, Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford, through their
spontaneous and heroic actions, demonstrated their character and
compassion for the welfare of others; the life of a student was saved
due to the virtue of their behavior and the collective concern of ordi-
nary citizens across the community of the State of New York; now, there-
fore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford in recognition of
their heroic actions in saving the life of a Genesee Valley Central
School District student on February 13, 2014; and be it further
RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Rita George, Brian Edmister, and Robert Ford.
