HONORING Firefighter Thomas Piazza upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the North
Greece Fire Department

WHEREAS, Citizens across our State and Nation are inspired by and
indebted to our noble volunteer firefighters who exhibit courage and
bravery every day in the course of their duties; and

WHEREAS, Volunteer Firefighters exemplify the power of human
compassion and the strength of the American spirit through actions of
the most heroic magnitude; their sacrifices and their selfless
dedication merit tribute and recognition by all citizens of this great
country; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Firefighter
Thomas Piazza upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the North Greece Fire
Department, to be celebrated with a Banquet on Saturday, April 14, 2018;
and

WHEREAS, Thomas Piazza joined the North Greece Fire Department on
December 10, 1967; and

WHEREAS, Throughout his illustrious tenure with the North Greece
Fire Department, Thomas Piazza served as Fire Chief from 1986 to 1991,
and as a line officer for more than two decades; and

WHEREAS, Thomas Piazza has chaired and served on numerous
committees, and continues to be one of the Department's most active
members, regularly responding to emergencies, drills, meetings and
functions; and

WHEREAS, Firefighters unwaveringly serve our great State with pride,
valor, and integrity; these respected volunteers are often the first to
respond to an emergency, whether the emergency is a fire, transportation
accident, natural disaster, act of terrorism, medical crisis, or spill
of hazardous materials; 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 Piazza 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
honor Firefighter Thomas Piazza upon the occasion of his designation for
