Half-Staff Alert - January 17, 2020
For Minnesota Only

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday ordered all U.S. and state flags to be flown at half-staff on Friday in honor of Howard Lake Fire Chief Daryl "Taddy" Drusch, who died earlier this week.

"Fire Chief Daryl 'Taddy' Drusch dedicated 30 years of exemplary service to the Howard Lake Fire and Rescue/Ambulance Service, serving as chief since 2014," the proclamation from Walz read. "With its deepest gratitude, the State of Minnesota recognizes Fire Chief Drusch for his dedicated service to, and sacrifice for, his fellow citizens, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and entire community."



**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the Half-Staff or Half-Mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
