Gov. Kate Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, Oct. 6 in recognition of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Day.
” Our firefighters protect our land, our communities, and their fellow Oregonians, ” Brown said. ” I am thankful for the dedicated service of these brave men and women. We honor the legacy of those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and pause for loved ones of those lost. ”
