Senate Resolution No. 386

BY: Senator FUNKE

COMMENDING Firefighter Lewis Stewart upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Victor
Volunteer Fire Department

WHEREAS, The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout
the Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the
arduous field of fire protection and prevention; and

WHEREAS, Since the early days of "teapot steamers," the volunteer
firefighter has been the cornerstone of our great Nation's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Firefighter Lewis
Stewart upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Victor Volunteer Fire
Department to be celebrated on March 2, 2019, in Victor, New York; and

WHEREAS, Lewis Stewart joined the Victor Volunteer Fire Department
on March 3, 1969; from 1988-1991, he served the department as its Vice
President; and

WHEREAS, Volunteer firefighters and fire departments not only
provide the critical service of fire protection but also engage in other
activities of great benefit and importance to the communities they
serve; 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;
Lewis Stewart 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 Firefighter Lewis Stewart for 50 years of distinguished service;
and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Firefighter Lewis Stewart.
