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.
