Flags to Half-Staff in Honor of Andrew Brake and Kirk Griess

Posted on August 11, 2018


Flag Half-Staff

The flag of the United States will be lowered and flown at half-staff at all City facilities in honor and remembrance of Cal Fire Heavy Equipment Mechanic Andrew Blake until further notice. Andrew was tragically killed while assisting with the Carr Fire on August 9, 2018.  We extend our heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Brake Family and Cal Fire.  Please keep them in your thoughts, as fires continue to burn in California.

The flag of the United States will be maintained at half-staff in honor of CHP Officer Kirk Griess. Officer Griess was tragically killed on August 10, 2018 on I-80 while conducting a traffic stop. Our thoughts are with the Griess Family, CHP, and the entire law enforcement community.
