About the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew Learning and Tribute Center

We hope visitors will be inspired by the men who died fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire and also learn more about wildland firefighting and how they can help prevent future fires.

Our Story

The Prescott Fire Department has held in trust all items the community left at Station 7 and sent from around the world mourning the loss of the Granite Mountain Hotshots on June 30, 2013. Community members called for action on the items, and recognize the need for a place to commemorate the nineteen fallen hotshots. Over the ensuing months, a nonprofit group was born: The Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew
Learning and Tribute Center.

Our Mission

Our mission is to establish, operate and maintain a wildland fire learning center that honors the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew (GMIHC) by telling their story, housing artifacts/memorabilia, and educating visitors about
wildland fire, firefighting, and prevention.

Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew Learning and Tribute Center

The loss of our 19 hotshots on June 30, 2013 made a profound impact on hearts and souls throughout our local communities, the state of Arizona, the United States, and other nations. This event is now part of local history, and it is our duty and honor to preserve the legacy of the nineteen, to illustrate the heartfelt kindness and generosity which poured out locally and globally, to recognize the unique character and work of firefighters worldwide, and to educate-so that this may never happen again.
