LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Robert Stackrow upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after 50 years of
dedicated service to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment

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 Robert
Stackrow upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volun-
teer Fire Department at its Installation Dinner on Saturday, May 4,
2013; and
WHEREAS, Robert Stackrow joined the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer
Fire Department in 1962; for 50 years he has been a First Responder,
Interior Firefighter, Apparatus Driver and Pump Operator; he has taken
on leadership as well, serving as a line officer and as President of the
Fire Company; and
WHEREAS, In addition, Firefighter Robert Stackrow is a 20 year member
of the Board of Fire Commissioners, 10 of which he served as Chairman;
during his productive tenure with this esteemed Board he stabilized and
transformed the finances of the Fire District, which resulted in signif-
icant savings to the taxpayer and greater fiscal well-being for the
community; 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 people 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; Robert
Stackrow is such a firefighter; throughout 50 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 Robert Stackrow for 50 years of distinguished
service to the Averill Park-Sand Lake Volunteer Fire Department; and be
it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Robert Stackrow.
