Return to Full Staff: When all of the victims have been laid to rest

For Immediate Release: 5/15/2022 GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL

GOVERNOR HOCHUL DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF TO HONOR VICTIMS OF TOPS SUPERMARKET SHOOTING IN BUFFALO


Governor Kathy Hochul today announced flags on state buildings will be flown at half-staff on May 16 in honor of the victims of the horrific shooting at Tops Supermarket in Buffalo. Flags should be lowered to half-staff at sunrise on May 16 and should remain lowered until all of the victims are laid to rest.

"The violence we witnessed at the hands of this white supremacist is sickening, unacceptable and it must stop here," Governor Hochul said. "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us, and we must confront white supremacy head on. My heart is with our neighbors in Buffalo, the victims and their families — their legacy will live on."

“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defense force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”
~ Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999
