Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with President Joseph R. Biden’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered on Sunday, Oct. 9 for National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.

“October 9 through October 15 is Fire Prevention Week,” Woodward said. “We encourage all residents to embrace the 2022 Fire Prevention Week theme, Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.”
