Now that the memorial service is over for the 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots that died on the Yarnell Hill Fire, the attention will now turn to 19 funerals that are being held this week. We contacted the Incident Management Team that organized the memorial service to ask about the funerals, but they said no information can be officially released, due to the fact that some of the families want to keep the services low key.

We know that at least three will only welcome their family and close friends. But others, however, may allow the general public to attend. If you know of any families that will allow people they don’t know to be at their services, leave the details in a comment. But, be certain that the family is OK with publishing the information.

Information needed includes:

  • Name of the firefighter
  • Will the family allow the general public? yes/no
  • Name of the church or facility for the service.
  • Address of the facility.
  • Date and time.
  • Information for fire personnel, or departments who plan to bring fire apparatus; where & when to stage, who to contact, etc.
  • Remarks.
  • Web site for additional information.

Typos, let us know HERE, and specify which article. Please read the commenting rules before you post a comment.
