Governor Walz orders flags at half-staff for fallen firefighters

Governor Tim Walz today joined others states in directing all U.S. and Minnesota flags at federal and state buildings to be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Sunday, October 4, to honor firefighters who have been killed or injured in the line of duty.

“This act of recognition honors the goal of bringing every firefighter home safely at the end of every shift,” said Governor Walz. “Minnesota firefighters have served a vital role in responding and protecting people during this year’s tragic fire season on the West Coast.”
