HONORING Joseph Weber upon the occasion of his

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 Joseph Weber
upon the occasion of his designation as recipient of the 2016
Distinguished Fire Service Award by the Lake View Volunteer Fire

WHEREAS, A vital member of the Department, Joseph Weber has
consistently been named a Top Responder for the last several years; and

WHEREAS, Dedicated to the Lake View Volunteer Fire Department,
Joseph Weber enjoys sharing his skills and knowledge with both the
younger and new members of the Department; 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;
Joseph Weber is such a firefighter; throughout many years of devoted
service to the Lake View Fire Department, 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 Joseph Weber upon the occasion of his designation as recipient of
the 2016 Distinguished Fire Service Award by the Lake View Volunteer
