LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney
upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition as he
completes his outstanding service as the East Williston Fire Depart-
ment's Truck Captain

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 Outgoing Truck
Captain Thomas Devaney upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition as he completes his outstanding service as the East Willi-
ston Fire Department's Truck Captain; and
WHEREAS, Thomas Devaney will be honored at the East Williston Fire
Department's Annual Installation Dinner to be held on Saturday, April
13, 2013 at the Stewart Manor Country Club on Salisbury Avenue in
Stewart Manor, New York; 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; Thomas
Devaney is such a firefighter; throughout his many years of devoted
service, this volunteer, Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney, has
heroically performed, above and beyond the call of duty, those responsi-
bilities which define the task of fire protection; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney for his distinguished
service to the East Williston Fire Department and his community; and be
it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Outgoing Truck Captain Thomas Devaney.
