Nineteen members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, part of the Prescott Fire Department, lost their lives Sunday, June 30th, while battling the Yarnell Hill fire south of Prescott.
My name is Darin Fisher, and I am the Crew Superintendent of the Prescott Hotshots in Prescott, Arizona. We are raising funds for the direct support of the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The Granite Mountain Hotshots were our brothers in the field, and we are doing everything in our power to support the families and the community after our loss. For a short background, the Prescott Hotshots are a Type 1 Hotshot Crew based in Prescott, Arizona. We are a U.S. Forest Service Hotshot Crew. You can find more information on our crew here.
We applaud the amazing amount of support that our small community has received from people all over the world. In response to that support, and in response to an overwhelming demand, we have created a shirt memorializing the fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots. We are offering them to you in an effort to raise funds for the families of those Hotshots.
This fundraising effort and the shirts are officially sanctioned by the Prescott Hotshots and the Prescott Fire Department. 100% of the proceeds will be given to the families left behind.
Thank you for your support.
