HONORING Firefighter Earl Zimmerman upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to the Snyder
Fire Department

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
Earl Zimmerman upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the Snyder Fire
Department of Amherst, New York; this milestone will be celebrated on
Sunday, March 6, 2022; and

WHEREAS, Firefighter Earl "Bud" Zimmerman has consistently
demonstrated a level of commitment, dedication, integrity and
professionalism which truly exemplifies excellence in the volunteer
service; and

WHEREAS, Throughout his illustrious career which has traversed five
decades, Earl Zimmerman has held several positions within the
department, including Junior Captain, Lieutenant, Captain, Second
Assistant Chief, and Director; he has also served as a Fire District
Commissioner since 1990; and

WHEREAS, Earl Zimmerman's passion has always been his family; he is
married with four adult children and several grandchildren; and

WHEREAS, Currently working part-time for the Town of Amherst Highway
Department, Earl Zimmerman recently retired from full-time employment;
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;
Earl Zimmerman is one such firefighter; throughout his 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 Earl Zimmerman upon the occasion of his designation
for special recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the
Snyder Fire Department; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Firefighter Earl Zimmerman.
