Press Release, State Assemblyman Steve Hawley

ALBION – Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) announced today that he will be hosting two free Yellow Dot programs later this week in Albion and Corfu.

The programs will be conducted by both the Orleans and Genesee County Sheriff Departments. Orleans County Sheriff Randall Bower is expected to attend the event in Albion on Wednesday.

Yellow Dot is designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention during that first “golden hour” after a car crash or emergency.

“Yellow Dot is truly a life-saving program,” Hawley said. “This is a free program that is especially important as road conditions become more dangerous during the winter months. Participating in the Yellow Dot Program is as easy as filling out a brief medical card and placing the yellow dot sticker on your car window. I encourage all who are available to stop by and pick up your free Yellow Dot Kit at one of these events this week or contact your local sheriff’s department.”

The event in Albion will be 12:30p.m. Wednesday at the Albion Academy Apartments, South Entrance, 16 E Academy St.

Hawley will also lead a program at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday at Corfu United Presbyterian Church, 63 Alleghany Rd.
