RESOLUTION

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association and commending the Association on its century of service to the State of Ohio.

Whereas the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association was established in 1910 in order to “provide an opportunity to discuss and study methods to apply in the endeavor to reduce to a minimum Ohio's loss of life and property through destruction by fire, and also to establish a medium through which there can be an interchange of ideas, practice and experience dealing with matters of general interest for the betterment of the service”;

Whereas the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association is a statewide organization supporting the interests of Ohio's fire chief officers, and through the work of its dedicated Board of Directors, committee volunteers, and professional staff, the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association continually focuses on being the premier fire and emergency services organization in the State of Ohio;

Whereas Assistant Chief Jack Welsh served as the first President of the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association in 1910;

Whereas Chief Clifford Mason presides as the current Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association President;

Whereas the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association has advocated for a comprehensive fire code that protects Ohio’s communities and residents, as well as on-going education for emergency medical responders and firefighters, an education designed to prepare current fire department leaders to address today's issues while training tomorrow's leaders to step forward;

Whereas the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association has taken a leading role in the fire service not only in Homeland Security efforts for the great State of Ohio, but also in organizing assistance in response to out-of-State emergencies;

Whereas the Cincinnati Fire Department was organized in 1853 and is the Nation’s oldest fully paid professional fire department, and has provided the pattern for fire departments across the State of Ohio and the Nation;

Whereas the 100th anniversary celebration of the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association will be held July 17, 2010, through July 21, 2010, in Sandusky, Ohio; and

Whereas firefighters valiantly and heroically risk their lives and throw themselves into harm’s way for the safety and public protection of civilians across the United States: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives—

(1)

celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association; and

(2)

commends the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association on its century of service to the State of Ohio.
