Senate Resolution No. 1952

BY: Senator KAPLAN

COMMENDING Ex-Captain/President Peter Whitcomb
upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to
the Atlantic Hook & Ladder Company No. 1

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 commend
Ex-Captain/President Peter Whitcomb upon the occasion of his designation
for special recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the
Atlantic Hook & Ladder Company No. 1, to be celebrated at its 133rd
Annual Installation and Inspection Dinner in Port Washington, New York,
on Saturday, June 15, 2019; and

WHEREAS, Peter Whitcomb was elected to membership in the Atlantic
Hook & Ladder Company No. 1, in December of 1968; in addition to serving
as both Captain and President, he has served in nearly every other
firefighting and administrative officer position; today, he remains
active as a Trustee of Company No. 1, and Safety Officer for the Port
Washington Fire 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;
Ex-Captain/President Peter Whitcomb 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 Ex-Captain/President Peter Whitcomb upon the occasion of his
designation for special recognition after 50 years of dedicated service
to the Atlantic Hook & Ladder Company No. 1; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Ex-Captain/President Peter Whitcomb.
