LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 140th Anniversary of the Oswego
Fire Department

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commemorate the 140th Anni-
versary of the Oswego Fire Department and to honor its past and present
firefighting members for 140 years of fire protection to the citizens of

Oswego County, New York, was established in 1876 and is the second
oldest career fire department in New York State; and
WHEREAS, In addition to fire suppression, the Oswego Fire Department
provides emergency ambulance service, water rescue, and hazardous mate-
rials emergency response; and
WHEREAS, Currently, the Oswego Fire Department includes 59 members, a
number of whom are legacy firefighters, or relatives of those who have
served the residents of Oswego in years past; and
WHEREAS, The history of the Oswego Fire Department sadly includes the
loss of five members in the line of duty; and

the Oswego Fire Department in public service and fire protection is one

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

their own by serving as firefighters; and

special recognition to those who work so assiduously for the betterment
of their communities, and acknowledge publicly the heroic good works
performed by the fire departments of this great Empire State, their

proudly commemorate the 140th Anniversary of the Oswego Fire Department;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Oswego Fire Department.
