LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Outgoing Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts
upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition by the
Roosevelt Fire Department of Roosevelt, New York, on April 20, 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 Outgoing Chief
Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition by the Roosevelt Fire Department of Roosevelt, New York,
which was celebrated at its Annual Installation Dinner on April 20,
2013, at the Coral House, Baldwin, 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; Chief
Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts is such a firefighter; throughout his 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 Outgoing Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts upon the occasion of his
designation for special recognition by the Roosevelt Fire Department of
Roosevelt, New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Chief Thomas Wiltshire-Pitts.
