BY: Senator BORRELLO

HONORING Firefighter Trenwith Young upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 60 years of dedicated service to the Belfast
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
Trenwith Young upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 60 years of dedicated service to the Belfast Fire
Company, celebrated at the Allegany County Volunteer Firemen's
Association's 104th Annual Convention on Wednesday, July 10, 2019; and

WHEREAS, For his steadfast and unremitting commitment to both his
community and his company, Trenwith Young was named the 2019 Fireman of
the Year; and

WHEREAS, Trenwith Young joined the New Hudson Fire Company in 1959,
and transferred to Belfast Fire Company in 1960; throughout his 60 years
of service, he held several positions within the Department including:
2nd Assistant Chief, 1962-1964; and 1st Assistant Chief, 1964-1966;
Chief from 1966-1968; and President from 1972-1976; and

WHEREAS, The son of the late Donald and Roberta Young, Trenwith was
born on November 27, 1934, in Black Creek, New York; after graduating
from high school in Cuba, New York, he was employed with Acme Electric
holding various positions, such as draftsman and battery charger; and

WHEREAS, In September of 1969, Firefighter Trenwith Young was
appointed New York Fire Instructor for Allegany County and Fire
Investigator in 1976 and 1977; also he completed an Arson Investigation
course at the Academy of Fire Science in 1976; and

Donald and Douglas; two daughters, Donna and Deborah (late); three
granddaughters, Ashley, Sandi, and Christina; two grandsons, Donald, and
Brandon; and great-grandchildren, Jasmine, Lily, Thomas, Ayoras,

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;
Trenwith Young is one such firefighter; throughout 60 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 Trenwith Young upon the occasion of his designation
for special recognition after 60 years of dedicated service to the
Belfast Fire Company; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Firefighter Trenwith Young.
