“The Yarnell Hill Fire always will be remembered for the loss of our brave 19 firefighters from the elite Granite Mountain Hotshots. The tragic human toll felt by their families, friends and the community is truly immeasurable. I commend the Serious Accident Investigative Team for its swift, expert work to examine and report the facts that led to the tragedy.

“I appreciate the recommendations they have made to the state with the aim to help improve wildfire safety and suppression in the future. I hope that the findings of this nationally-recognized team of investigators will further the healing process and give guidance for wildland firefighters in Arizona and around the nation.”
