LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Edward McGill upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 37 years of
dedicated service to the Otterkill Engine Company No. 1

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 Edward
McGill upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 37 years of dedicated service to the Otterkill Engine Company No.
1 to be celebrated at its Annual Banquet on Saturday, November 1, 2014;
and
WHEREAS, Edward McGill joined the Otterkill Engine Company No. 1 in
1976; 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; Edward
McGill is such a firefighter; throughout 37 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 Edward McGill for 37 years of distinguished service;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Edward McGill.
