Flags at half staff at firehouses today by order of the Governor

Governor Mike Parson has ordered U.S. and Missouri flags to  be flown at half-staff at all government buildings in central Missouri’s Boone County, 

That’s to honor  Boone County Fire Protection District Assistant Chief Bryant Gladney.  

On the morning of December 22,  Gladney was among the first responders who worked a crash on Interstate 70 westbound, east of Columbia. 

A tractor-trailer struck fire service and EMS vehicles, killing Assistant Chief Gladney in the line of duty. 

Flags are also at half staff today at the Firefighter Memorial of Missouri in Kingdom City and firehouses statewide.
