Flags ordered to half-staff in Lubbock County

Flags ordered to half-staff in Lubbock County

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK -

Following the deaths of a Lubbock firefighter and police officer, and the injury of another firefighter, all on-scene at a crash Saturday morning, County Judge Curtis Parrish has ordered flags be lowered to half-staff for the next week.

Here is a statement from Parrish:

The Lubbock community mourns the loss of our honored First Responders.  Our hearts go out to their families, the men and women of the Lubbock Police Department and Lubbock Fire Rescue, and to the entire community in this time of loss.  

As such, it is fitting that flags should be lowered immediately to half-staff in memory of those who lost their lives. Therefore, I direct the flags which fly over Lubbock County buildings be immediately lowered to half-staff on Saturday, January 11, 2020, in memory of those who lost their lives.  Flags should remain at half-staff through sunset on Friday, January 17, 2020.  

Individuals, businesses, municipalities, other political subdivisions, and entities within Lubbock County are encouraged to fly their flags at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of honor and respect.  Brenda and I extend our prayers of comfort to the families and all the men and women of the LPD and LFR and we will continue to keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
