For Kansas Only
In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has ordered flags in Pottawatomie and Pratt Counties to be flown at half-staff beginning sun-up Saturday, January 6 through sun-down on Sunday, January 7 to honor Firefighter John Randle of the Wamego Fire Department. Randle lost his life from injuries sustained in the line of duty on January 2nd.
"On behalf of all the citizens of Kansas, Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer and I, along with our families, extend our deepest sympathies to Firefighter Randle's family," said Governor Brownback. "Our prayers are with his family, friends and the entire law enforcement community."
Randle was a 14-year veteran of the Wamego Fire Department.
**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.
