The Memorial began at 11:00 AM Pacific Tuesday, July 9, 2013 and run thru 1:00 PM.
AZCentral.com reports all available tickets for the service at the 5,000-seat Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley are gone. The bulk of the tickets were issued to family of the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew and support "fire family" personnel.
Authorities have set up jumbotrons for spectators to watch outside of the center. Officials advise that there's no shading or seating provided; they encourage people to bring their own lawn chairs unless they're willing to stand. The forecast calls for high temperatures in the mid-90ss and humidity of about 13 percent. Water stations will be available.
Again... live feed from AZCentral should begin at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern
