HONORING Firefighter James S. Fleischman upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Belmont
Fire Company

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
James S. Fleischman upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the Belmont Fire
Company, celebrated at the Allegany County Volunteer Firemen's
Association's 104th Annual Convention on Wednesday, July 10, 2019; and

WHEREAS, James S. Fleischman joined the Belmont Fire Company on
April 2, 1969; throughout his 50 years of service, he held several
positions within the Company including: Company Treasurer and an active
firefighter; and

WHEREAS, The son of Edward and Virginia Fleischman, James was born
on March 5, 1947, in Wellsville, New York; after graduating from Belmont
Central School in 1965, he was employed at Dresser Rand as a Machinist
and an Electrician, the position from which James S. Fleischman retired
upon the completion of 40 plus years of service; and

WHEREAS, Furthermore, James S. Fleischman worked with his son at F &
F Electric in Belmont, and with his wife, they built, co-owned and
operated Amity Deli, which is now known as Crosbies; and

WHEREAS, With him throughout have been his wife, Barbara; two sons,
Mark (Yvonne) and Steven (Elizabeth), one daughter, Erica (Emory); and
five grandchildren, Brooke, Brayden, Mason, Ella, and Lily; 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;
James S. Fleischman is one such 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 James S. Fleischman upon the occasion of his
designation for special recognition after 50 years of dedicated service
to the Belmont Fire Company; and be it further
