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 by educating visitors about wildland fire and firefighting.
Board members of the GMIHC Learning and Tribute Center are: Chairman John Marsh (father of Hotshot Eric Marsh), Diane Clevenger, Nancy Christie, Mardi Read, Jason Lohman, Karen Norris (mother of Hotshot Scott Norris), Tom Haney, Tony Shaw and Dennis Bueschel. Katie Cornelius was retained as curator.
The City of Prescott has partnered with Prescott Gateway Mall to realize the hopes of many with the opening of the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew Learning and Tribute Center on Friday, June 29th at noon. We are hopeful that 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 tragedies.
