BODY
WHEREAS, Firefighter Catherine Wall has served Miami-Dade County residents with honor and distinction over a 25 year career; and
WHEREAS, during her career, Firefighter Wall distinguished herself as a courageous and caring firefighter and paramedic, working at busy stations most of her career, often going back after a call and helping people in need with medical care, food and clothing; and

WHEREAS, Firefighter Wall was raised in North Miami Beach and worked for much of her career there as a paramedic and firefighter; and
WHEREAS, Firefighter Wall has been battling leukemia, which has sidelined her career and forced her to stop working in the field for medical treatment; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Finds that Firefighter Catherine Wall has made a direct, significant lifetime contribution to this community, and approves the dedication of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Station 31 located at 17050 N.E. 19 Avenue, North Miami Beach in honor of Firefighter Catherine Wall.
