Memorial to the Granite Mountain Hot Shot team


Second in a series by Richard Lefever of Bishop Services about their experiences on the Yarnell, Ariz. fire.

For more than 25 years Bishop Services has been feeding and showering fire personnel. We provide the social arena within a fire camp where friendships are formed and close personal bonds are made. This was especially the case with the Granite Mountain Hot Shots. Only a week earlier while catering the Doce fire in Prescott, Ariz., the Granite Mountain Hot Shots personally thanked us for our meals and as ambassadors of Prescott welcomed us to their city. We spent additional time in our dining tent sipping coffee while reminiscing on past fires and speculating on the season ahead.
