Flags at Half-Staff until Sunset on August 4th

Posted on July 31, 2018


Please accept the attached information regarding Memorial Services for National Park Service Fire Captain Brian Hughes – August 4, 2018.
In addition, please return the flags to full staff and all Fire Personnel please un-shroud your badges at sunset, Saturday, August 4, 2018.


Please be advised that San Rafael Mayor Gary Phillips has authorized that the flag of the United States be lowered and flown at half-staff at San Rafael facilities until further notice, in honor and remembrance of Fallen Firefighters. Along with the firefighters, four Shasta County residents also have been killed, including a 70-year-old woman and her two great-grandchildren and someone who was found in an evacuated home. Approximately 19 people are still missing.

We extend our heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Fire Family.  Please keep them in your thoughts, as fires continue to rage in California. San Rafael Fire Personnel please shroud your badges.
