COMMENDING Past Chief Richard Trebilcock upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after more than 70 years of dedicated service to the
Chenango 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 proud to commend Past Chief
Richard Trebilcock upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition after more than 70 years of dedicated service to the
Chenango Fire Company; 68 of which he served as an active firefighter;
and

WHEREAS, On January 15, 1951, at the young age of 18, Richard
Trebilcock joined the Hinman's Corners Fire Company, which was renamed
the Chenango Fire Company Inc. in 1985; today, he is the longest tenured
member in company history; and

WHEREAS, For over seven decades, Richard Trebilcock has
enthusiastically responded to fires, accidents, storm damage, ambulance
calls and other emergencies within his community; and

WHEREAS, Richard Trebilcock rarely slows down, answering 141 calls
in 2015; furthermore, he has a true passion for driving fire trucks and
leading the Fire Police; and

WHEREAS, Throughout his 70 years of service, Richard Trebilcock has
held several positions within the Department, including Chief of
Department, President and as a member of the Board of Directors; he
served in various officer roles for over 56 years; and

WHEREAS, Richard Trebilcock has also received many service awards
and accolades throughout his years of skillful leadership, including the
Firefighter of the Year Award; and

WHEREAS, In addition to his extraordinary service as a firefighter,
Richard Trebilcock spent many years volunteering with the Chenango
Ambulance service; 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;
Richard Trebilcock is one such firefighter; throughout 70 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 Past Chief Richard Trebilcock for more than 70 years of
distinguished service to the Chenango Fire Company; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Past Chief Richard Trebilcock.
