Remembering our Fallen #Arizona19 (Updates and Tribute to Granite Mountain Hotshots)

Arizona and our nation lost 19 of our elite firefighters in the Yarnell Hill Fire on June 30, 2013.

The Granite Mountain Hotshots, established in 2002, were an elite ground firefighting crew known for their innovative problem-solving and history of safe, aggressive fire suppression.

Members of the crew were highly trained, came from diverse backgrounds, and worked long hours in extreme environmental conditions doing the most demanding of fireline tasks.

According to The Daily Courier

  • They carried 50-70 pounds on their back, hiked seven miles or more to where they needed to work, and worked up to 14 hours, sometimes longer.
  • The average age of the men in the hotshot crew was 27-years-old.
  • “They have to be ready to leave for an assignment on two hours’ notice, which sometimes means missing family events,”Wade Ward of the Prescott FD said last week. “They have to be prepared to be on that assignment for 21 days, get two days rest at home, and possibly be sent out on another 21-day assignment.”

The LA Times reports on 29-Jun-2015 the families of 12 of the 19 Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew members settled for $50,000 each, according to a copy of the settlement agreement. A workplace lawsuit will ensure the families of the other 7 firefighters killed on June 28, 2013, will receive $10,000 each from the Arizona State Forestry Division.

In addition to the financial settlements, the Forestry Division also agreed to make improvements in how it manages fires, including overhauling its radio communication efforts.

The Forestry Division also pledged to encourage the National Wildfire Coordination Group, a federal interagency firefighting group, to create a course that addresses “the reality of death,” and instructs firefighters to make estate planning and custody arrangements.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the families of the fallen Arizona 19 (a.k.a. Prescott 19), the cities of Yarnell and Prescott, and the entire FF/EMS Brotherhood.

Scroll down to see a moving memorial video to our brothers and may they continue to Rest In Peace...

Below iconic image of Granite Mountain Hotshots in a human pyramid formation is now the centerpiece of the Yarnell Hill Fire Memorial Park in downtown Yarnell AZ. It is a 9’ etched steel image, and was a photo recovered from the personal camera of hotshot Christopher MacKenzie. The photo was modified, with family permission, to include 2 members of the crew who were not present for the pic and Chris who was taking the photo.
