    Designating December 15, 1993, as ``National Firefighters Day''.

Whereas there are over 2,000,000 firefighters in the United States;
Whereas firefighters respond to more than 2,300,000 fires and 8,700,000 
  emergencies other than fires each year;

  property damages;
Whereas firefighters have given their lives and risked injury to 
  preserve the lives and protect the property of others;
Whereas the contributions and sacrifices of valiant firefighters often 
  go unreported and are inadequately recognized by the public; and
Whereas the work of firefighters deserves the attention and gratitude of 
  all individuals in the United States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That Decem-P ber 15, 1993, is 
designated as ``National Firefighters Day'', and the President of the 
United States is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation 
calling upon the people of the United States to observe the day with 
appropriate ceremonies and activities.
