Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy has directed that flags in Pierce County facilities be lowered to half-staff until further notice in honor of Margaret Anderson, the Mount Rainier National Park ranger who was killed in the line of duty last week.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Anderson family, the National Park staff and the entire community," Executive McCarthy said.
Update: this directive expired Jan. 11, the day after Ranger Anderson's memorial service.
