Governor's Proclamation

I hereby order all flags flown in the state of Montana to be flown at half-staff on Friday, August 23rd, 2019 until Sunday August 25th, 2019 to honor DaryLynne Day, a Powell County emergency medical technician, who lost her life in the line of duty on August 19th, 2019.

DaryLynne Day was a devoted mother, a courageous medical professional, and a selfless public servant who stood ready to perform her medical duty the night of this tragic event. The thoughts and prayers of my family and administration are with the family, friends, and colleagues of DaryLynne Day and Montana's emergency medical professionals across the state.

Dated this 23rd day of August 2019.
