Governor Orders Flags Lowered Today in Honor of Fallen Firefighter
Governor Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. flags at the Capitol and other state buildings to be lowered to half-staff today in honor of Brian Woehlke, a Westland firefighter who was killed on May 8th.
The 29-year-old Woehlke who was from Dearborn, died from injuries sustained while fighting a strip mall fire.
Snyder extended his condolences to Woehlke’s family and in a statement said “Brian is an example of the brave men and women who protects our communities every day, and his loss is a painful reminder of the risks they endure to keep us safe.”
Woehlke is survived by his wife Jennifer, and their daughter Ava.
