Senate Resolution No. 1336
 
BY: Senator GRIFFO
 
        HONORING   Firefighter   Richard  Frank  upon  the
        occasion of his designation for special  recognition
        after  60  years of dedicated service to the Massena
        Volunteer 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
Richard   Frank  upon  the  occasion  of  his  designation  for  special
recognition after 60 years of dedicated service to the Massena Volunteer
Fire Department; and
 
  WHEREAS, Firefighter Richard Frank received  this  auspicious  award
for  his  steadfast  and unremitting commitment to the Massena Volunteer
Fire Department at this year's Fire Prevention Week Banquet; and
 
  WHEREAS, Richard Frank, affectionately known  as  Dick,  joined  the
Massena Volunteer Fire Department in October of 1961; and
 
  WHEREAS,   Today,  after  six  decades  of  tireless  service,  this
extraordinary 86-year-old  continues  to  respond  to  calls,  directing
traffic  during fires; he is truly one of the most trusted volunteers in
the Department; and
 
  WHEREAS, In addition to his instrumental role in fighting  countless
local  fires  over  the years, Firefighter Richard Frank is known as the
jack-of-all-trades  around  the  station,  fixing   numerous   plumbing,
electrical and heating issues; and
 
  WHEREAS,  The  enthusiasm,  devotion  and  camaraderie Richard Frank
brings to the Massena Volunteer Fire Department will forever stand as  a
paradigm and inspiration for others; 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;
Richard Frank is one such firefighter; throughout 60  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 Richard Frank upon the occasion of his designation for
special recognition after 60 years of dedicated service to  the  Massena
Volunteer Fire Department; and be it further
 
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Firefighter Richard Frank.
