Why flags will be at half staff on Sunday

Flags in Southborough and elsewhere will be a half staff on Sunday, October 3 in observance of the 29th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.

During the service, a plaque bearing the names of 80 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2009 — including several from Massachusetts — will be added to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, located on the National Fire Academy campus in Emmitsburg, MD. The plaques surrounding the Memorial, which was established in 1981, will contain the names of more than 3,400 firefighters.
