Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) recently attended an informational event regarding installation and maintenance of residential smoke detectors at the 6th Street Firehouse in Troy. The event was sponsored by the American Red Cross in conjunction with September as National Preparedness Month. Local officials and Red Cross volunteers will work throughout the month to deliver free smoke detectors and fire safety information to residents.
“This event offered residents a tremendous opportunity to obtain free smoke detectors and information that will help keep their families safe during the unfortunate event of a home fire,” McLaughlin said. “Troy residents have been plagued by fires and other dangerous residential issues for many years due to the city’s older infrastructure and prevalence of abandoned properties. Public safety is an issue I take very seriously and I pledge to work with local leaders and volunteers to ensure the safety of residents in Troy and every area I represent.”
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,
