The Annual Hotshots 19 Memorial WOD
The annual Hotshots 19 Memorial WOD honors the nineteen fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots while providing support to the families of those fallen heroes.
On June 30, 2013, nineteen members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots tragically lost their lives while fighting a fire in Yarnell, Arizona. The Yarnell Hill fire is considred the sixth deadliest American firefighter disaster and the deadliest ever in Arizona as it resulted in the highest wildland firefighter death toll in the United States since the 1993 Griffith Park Fire that killed 29 firefighters.
Ignited by lightning on June 28, 2013, the Yarnell Hill fire eventually overran and killed the 19 City of Prescott firefighters on June 30. All were members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite group among firefighters often called to respond to large, high-priority fires due to the firefighters' extensive training, high physical fitness standards, and ability to undertake difficult, dangerous and stressful assignments.
The fire was finally contained by July 10, 2013.
