Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today ordered flags on state government buildings to be flown at half-staff on Tuesday, September 3rd until internment in honor of former Cayuga County undersheriff Stephen McLoud, who died from an illness resulting from his work at the World Trade Center site following the September 11th terrorist attacks.
"Officer McLoud was a dedicated public servant and hero who ultimately sacrificed his life helping our city, state and nation recover at Ground Zero following the September 11th terrorist attacks," Governor Cuomo said. "His selfless service embodies the heroism and bravery exhibited by all first responders who answered the call to serve following that fateful day, and I am directing flags to be flown at half-staff to honor his memory. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences to Officer McLoud's friends and family. We will never forget his service and his sacrifice."
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
