Lathrop Manteca Fire District

Flag Retirement


In conjunction with local organizations the District collects worn, faded and otherwise unserviceable flags, and ensures their proper retirement according to law. Flags can be dropped off during normal business hours at any of the District's Fire Stations.


Collected flags are burned during special flag retirement ceremonies conducted by local organizations with assistance from the District. The laws relating to the flag of the United States of America, including its proper disposal, are located in the United States Code (Title 4, Chapter 1).
