Flags at Half Staff on October 6, 2019

On October 16, 2001, President George W. Bush approved Public Law 107-51 requiring the American flag to be lowered to half-staff on all Federal buildings to memorialize fallen firefighters annually in conjunction with National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.

Remember to lower the American flags at your home, fire department, and business on Sunday, October 6, 2019. When you lower your flag this year, you will recognize the brave men and women who died protecting their communities from natural and manmade emergencies and disasters and those who carry on the proud tradition.
