The Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew Learning and Tribute Center is currently accepting applications for volunteers to act as visitor hosts and guides.
Volunteer shifts are three hours. Volunteers serve primarily as greeters and guides, and will conduct some retail transactions. All volunteers are subject to a background check, and will be trained.
The Center is located at the Prescott Gateway Mall and is open Friday 10 a.m. -4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sunday 11 -4 p.m.
“This is a good fit for individuals who have served as first responders, particularly the fire service,” said Board Chair John Marsh, “Compassionate individuals from all walks of life are welcome.” The Center is a non-profit organization, and is entirely volunteer operated. The Center houses artifacts, memorabilia and stories from the 19 heroes who gave their lives on June 30, 2013 while battling the Yarnell Hill Fire. During the first year of operation, the Center hosted over 23,000 visitors. For more information, and to sign up, go to GMIHC19.org.
