Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew (GMIHC)
learning and tribute center
>> 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 and operate a wildland fire learning center that honors the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew (GMIHC) by telling their story, displaying and housing artifacts/memorabilia, and educating visitors about wildland fire, firefighting, and prevention.
>> 2018 Center Statistic <<
