Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags
I hereby direct that Washington State and United States
flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to
half-staff on Tuesday, February 24, in memory of Erik
Anderson, a Spokane Community College instructor and state
employee. Erik was killed yesterday in a tragic work related
accident on the college campus.
Please notify your staff and all of your field offices
and facilities around the state.
Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset Tuesday or
first thing Wednesday morning, February 25.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are
encouraged to join this recognition.
Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions
about this flag lowering.
