Yarnell Hill Fire Investigation

Yarnell Hill Fire Investigation

The official investigation into the deaths of 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots killed June 30, 2013, on the Yarnell Hill Fire began Tuesday. On Friday, July 5, 2013, the Serious Accident Investigation Team issued the 72-Hour Preliminary Report. The report indicates the 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots were entrapped when flames overran their position in the late afternoon on Sunday, June 30, 2013. Eye witnesses state that fire behavior was extreme with heavy winds.

The Serious Accident Investigation Team (SAIT), made up of specialists from state, local and federal agencies around the country, will conduct an accident review of the Yarnell Hill Fire. The team will conduct interviews, collect documentation and perform a site review. The data and information gathered can be used to help gain an understanding of events. The team will deliver a factual and management report to the Arizona State Forester once the report is compiled. The intent of the investigation is to learn from the events leading up to this accident to help prevent a similar tragedy in the future.

The process is meticulous and it will take time in order to provide the most thorough, comprehensive product possible, ensuring that lessons learned are shared across all agencies. Examples of how previous serious accidents and incidents have been utilized to facilitate learning within the wildland fire community can be found via the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center at http://wildfirelessons.net.
Yavapai County Emergency Management Moves Toward Recovery

Yavapai County Emergency Management Moves Toward Recovery

Community Meetings Continue for Residents

PRESCOTT, Ariz. – The Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management is moving toward a recovery mode, focusing on the needs of residents of Yarnell and Peeples Valley in the wake of the deadly Yarnell Hill Fire, which started June 28.
Before residents return to their homes, critical services have to be restored – water, electricity, gas, communications and transportation. At this time, there is no established estimate for when Yarnell residents will be able to return to the area, but crews from various response agencies are working hard to reopen the community as quickly as possible. In the meantime, State Route 89 remains closed.

The county is working to establish community meeting days and locations in the Yarnell area to continue engagement with residents of the area after the mandatory evacuation order has been lifted. Currently, emergency management staff have been meeting each day with displaced residents. Those resident-only meetings have been taking place at the shelters at 11 a.m. in Wickenburg and at 6:30 p.m. at Yavapai College in Prescott.

Yavapai County’s first concern is for the health, welfare and safety of residents of the region. A strong presence from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office remains in the area and an individual assistance service center location is being established to aid residents once they can return to the area.

Residents with questions can contact the Yavapai County call center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 928-777-7481. Evacuated residents are urged to contact the call center to register.
