This week, June 30, 2017, marked the 4th anniversary of the loss of our Yarnell 19- the Granite Mountain Hotshot’s who lost their lives protecting ours. In honor of that remembrance, we are re-posting our talk with former Prescott, AZ fire chief Dan Fraijo:
Episode #11 is up- This week Matt sits down with Dan Fraijo, former Fire Chief & current mayoral candidate for the City of Prescott, AZ
Fraijo was thrust into the national & international spotlight on June 30, 2013 when the city and his department suffered one of the greatest tragedies in firefighter history- the loss of the entire Granite Mountain Hotshots crew, now known as the Yarnell Hill 19.
Listen in as Fraijo talks about his history, how he became a firefighter, how he, his department, his city dealt with the loss of 19 friends and family members, and how he believes he can help his city if elected mayor.
