Flags at half-staff Sunday

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Governor Inslee is deeply saddened by the death of Tom Zbyszewski, 20; Richard Wheeler, 31; and Andrew Zajac, 26, and directs that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in their memory on Sunday, August 30, 2015.

These three firefighters were killed when their truck crashed as they tried to escape the Okanogan Complex of wildfires.

The Governor’s Office has no objection to agencies lowering the flags at the close of business on Friday, August 28, 2015. Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on August 30 or first thing Monday morning, August 31, 2015.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.

Services will be held on Sunday, August 30, 2015, at 1:00pm at the Toyota Center in Wenatchee.

Please call 360-239-1317 if you have any questions about this flag lowering.
