firefighter has been the cornerstone of our great Nation's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and

Parks upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after
57 years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department of
Youngsville, New York; and
WHEREAS, Les Parks will be honored at the Youngsville Fire Depart-
ment's Annual Appreciation Dinner and Dance, to be held at the Youngs-
ville Fire Hall on Saturday, April 13, 2013; 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 friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need; Les
Parks is such a firefighter; throughout 57 years of devoted service, Les
Parks has heroically performed, above and beyond the call of duty, those
responsibilities which define the task of fire protection; now, there-
fore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter Les Parks for 57 years of distinguished service to
