Flags at half-staff Saturday

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Governor Inslee is deeply saddened by the death of East Olympia Volunteer Fire Captain John Ostergard, 63, and directs that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in his memory on Saturday, January 5, 2019. 

Captain Ostergard suffered a medical emergency while on the scene of a December 14 structure fire south of Yelm.

The Governor’s Office has no objection to agencies lowering the flags at the close of business on Friday, January 4, 2019. Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Saturday, January 5, or first thing Monday morning, January 7.

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

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on January 5 at the Mountain View Church of the Nazarene, 940 Israel Road SW in Tumwater. The service is open to the public and is full line-of-duty honors.

Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions about this flag lowering.
