Granite Mountain Hotshots

The Granite Mountain Hotshots were a crew within the Prescott Fire Department whose mission was to fight wildfires and when not so, engaged in work to reduce growth of fire-prone vegetation. Originally founded in 2001 as a fuels mitigation crew, they were later formed into Crew 7, a Type II IA hand-crew in 2004, and eventually transitioned into a Type I Inter-agency hotshot crew in 2008.

On June 30th, 2013, 19 of the 20 members of the group perished fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire, and after the incident it was decided that they could not keep the crew and was disbanded in 2014.
