incorporated on April 21, 1818, the freeholders of Esperance acquired
Deluge No. 1, as a used 18th Century Tub Engine from Schenectady, New
York, in 1815; and

WHEREAS, The Deluge is now located at the Old Stone Fort Museum in
Schoharie, New York, after serving the residents of Esperance for 60
years; it is known as the oldest fire engine in America, having been
originally built by Richard Newsham for New York City in 1731; it was

emergencies and have won the praise and respect of the community which
they serve; and


WHEREAS, With a membership of dedicated firefighters, the record of
the Esperance Volunteer Fire Department in public service and fire
protection is one to be envied; for 24 hours a day, for 365 days a year,
for 200 years, whenever the alarm sounded, these noble volunteers left
their homes and went to the aid of their neighbors; and

WHEREAS, The brave firefighters of the Esperance Volunteer Fire
Department are prepared to risk their lives every day to help save the

reflects the history and development of firefighting over the past 200
years; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body cannot express sufficient gratitude
to those devoted individuals who recognize that the preservation of life
and property is a sacred responsibility and who make that responsibility
their own by serving as firefighters; and

betterment of their communities, and acknowledge publicly the heroic
good works performed by the volunteer fire departments of this great
Empire State, their officers and auxiliaries; now, therefore, be it
