  • IAFC Flags Half-Staff

    Here is a copy of an article I recieved today from the IAFC. Hope this provides advice and guidance to those of you wondering.


    NEWS RELEASE
    For immediate release


    FIRE DEPARTMENTS ASKED TO CONTINUE
    PERIOD OF MOURNING UNTIL OCTOBER 11, 2001

    Fairfax, VA, Monday September 24, 2001.... The International Association
    of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) requests that all of America's fire and emergency
    service agencies continue to fly flags at half-staff and shroud their
    badges until Thursday, October 11, 2001 to mark a formal 30-day period of
    mourning for the fire and rescue workers lost in the 9-11 terrorist
    attacks.

    Due to the nature of the situation at "Ground Zero" in New York City, the
    IAFC acknowledges that it may never be possible to fully account for all
    the personnel who responded to the World Trade Center incidents. Further,
    no date has yet been set for a formal memorial service for the fallen
    firefighters and rescue workers involved in the tragic incidents.
    Therefore, the recognition of a set 30-day period should provide a formal
    time frame for observance.

    Chief John Buckman, president of the IAFC, said today "Although President
    Bush's 'national period of mourning' may have ended, it is certainly not
    over for those of us in the fire service. It's important that the fire
    and emergency service join together as a whole to continue to show our
    support and respect for our fallen comrades," Buckman stated, "and it will
    be important to mark this sad period in our history with some closure for
    all of us as well."

    Stay safe everyone!
