his designation as recipient of a Liberty Medal, the
highest honor bestowed upon an individual by the New
York State Senate

WHEREAS, It is incumbent upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize and acknowledge those within our midst who have made
significant contributions to the quality of life therein; and

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize the
caring concern and heroic acts of exemplary citizens who take prompt and
appropriate action in emergency situations, and in doing so, help others
to avert life-threatening danger; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commend James John
Vlacich upon the occasion of his designation as recipient of a Liberty
Medal, the highest honor bestowed upon an individual by the New York
State Senate; and

WHEREAS, The New York State Senate Liberty Medal was established by
Resolution and is awarded to individuals who have merited special
commendation for exceptional, heroic, or humanitarian acts on behalf of
their fellow New Yorkers; and

WHEREAS, On January 20, 2022, at approximately 5:30 a.m., James John
Vlacich noticed his neighbor's house on Manhasset Trail in Ridge, New
York, was on fire; without regard for his own safety, he entered the
home engulfed in flames, found the seriously injured resident, and
brought her to safety outside; and

WHEREAS, Shortly thereafter, a Ridge Fire Department Ambulance crew
arrived on the scene and transported the woman to Stony Brook University
Hospital; and

WHEREAS, Praised for his swift actions, James John Vlacich
demonstrated his true character and genuine compassion for the welfare
of others, personifying, by virtue of his actions, the collective
concern of ordinary citizens across the community of the State of New
York who voluntarily respond when others are in need; and

WHEREAS, Justly recognized as a hero, James John Vlacich richly
merits the admiration of this Legislative Body and his community for his
consummate courage and heroic actions; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend James John Vlacich upon the occasion of his designation as
recipient of a Liberty Medal, the highest honor bestowed upon an
individual by the New York State Senate; and be it further
