LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Dave Heineman is encouraging Nebraskans to fly U.S. and Nebraska flags at half-staff on Sunday.

The flag-lowering is part of the annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. The remembrance honors firefighters and other first responders who have sacrificed their lives to save others.

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will honor 107 firefighters who died nationwide in the line of duty in part of 2012 and all of 2013.
