LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Odane Purcell upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after five years of
dedicated service to the North Amityville Fire Company, Inc. on April
27, 2013

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 Odane
Purcell upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after five years of dedicated service to the North Amityville Fire
Company, Inc., to be celebrated at its 73rd Annual Installation Dinner &
Awards Ceremony on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at the Hyatt Wind Watch in
Hauppauge, New York; and
WHEREAS, Firefighter Odane Purcell is the current Captain of Fire
Police of the North Amityville Fire Company; he previously served as a
Lieutenant of Fire Police; 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; Odane
Purcell is such a firefighter; throughout five years of devoted service,
this volunteer has 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 Odane Purcell for five years of distinguished
service to the North Amityville Fire Company and his community; and be
it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Firefighter Odane Purcell.
