Gov. Ricketts Orders Flags to Fly at Half-Staff to Honor Fallen Fire Chief

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts ordered flags to fly at half-staff on April 13, 2022, to honor the passing of Elwood Volunteer Fire Department Chief Darren Krull.

 

“Susanne and I were heartbroken to receive news of the passing of Fire Chief Krull,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “Our prayers go out to his family and community as they mourn his loss.  The bravery shown by Fire Chief Krull exemplifies the selfless service that makes our state great.  As we reflect on his heroic sacrifice, we’re reminded of the courageous firefighters working in harm’s way across Nebraska to protect lives and property.  We salute their dedication and pray for their safety.”
