Everyday across Delaware, thousands of firefighters are prepared to put their lives on the line to pull their neighbors out of harm’s way. Almost all of these individuals are volunteers who have bravely committed to serving their communities. In honor of the men and women who have died while protecting Delawareans, in recognition of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service (to be held on Sunday) and in concurrence with an order from President Obama, Governor Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff beginning this afternoon until the start of business on Monday, October 7.
