This week parts of Southeast Michigan are expected to receive a considerable amount of rain. It is quite likely that some areas will flood. Water back-up issues are expected in Metro-Detroit.

Be sure to check the operation of your sump pumps and to mitigate potential losses by moving items off of the floor and into waterproof containers when able.

LANSING, Mich. -- Governor Whitmer has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff throughout the state of Michigan on Saturday, September 18 to honor the lives of firefighters who have died in the line of duty in 2020 and 2021, including those who have died of COVID-19. The flag honors will coincide with the Bureau of Fire Services Statewide Memorial on Saturday, September 18.

“Michigan’s firefighters courageously put their life on the line each and every day to serve our communities,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “The selflessness and dedication of these heroes do not go unnoticed especially as they worked to protect our state throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As we remember these fallen heroes, my thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones.”

The State of Michigan recognizes the duty, honor, and selfless service of these fallen firefighters by lowering flags to half-staff. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations also are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff.

To lower flags to half-staff, flags should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. The process is reversed before the flag is lowered for the day.

Flags should remain lowered on Sunday, September 19 to recognize former Staff Sergeant Natalie Barajas. Flags should be returned to full-staff on Monday, September 20.

They work around the clock to save property and lives. But when firefighters need help, who do they call? The wife of one firefighter who served at Engine 41 in Detroit before he died by su***de says in his honor, we need to talk about it.

IN-GOES determine OUT-COMES

9 minutes of good stuff from the late Sivad, got himself a fireboat named after him after he died saving girls from drowning off-duty. He was among DFD's finest. The least you can do is listen to his words now that he is gone. He has a cool page he was developing. God Bless...
