Flags at Half Staff

You might have noticed flags in public places today being lowered to half staff.  In respect to Las Vegas and pursuant to the Presidential Proclamation, flags will be lowered to half-staff today, October 2nd, until sunset on October 6, 2017.

The procedure is, in the morning, raise the flags briskly to full staff, then lower them slowly and respectfully to half staff.  In the evening again raise the flags briskly from half-staff to full-staff, then lower them slowly and respectfully, without letting them touch the ground, fold them appropriately for the night.  Thank you, Chief Larry Crabtree.
