A Yuma crew made of firefighters and honor guard members arrived in Prescott Saturday to help the fire department there.
Somber moments for arizona and the nation as they watched 19 hearses sunday carrying the men who lost their lives battling the yarnell hill fire late last month.
The Prescott fire department lost 20% of it's personnel June 30th as the hotshots were battling the Yarnell Hill fire.
The Yuma fire community is stepping in to help the Prescott Fire Department by responding to calls to fire station 72.
Yuma Fire Department Captain Richard Root is one of three men in his group who arrived Saturday afternoon.
Members of the United Yuma Firefighters Association arrived Monday to prepare for the memorial services Tuesday.
Honor guard member Cory Tolman with UYFFA said they are there to help in any way. He said, "We may play the bagpipes, hoist the colors...or even fold the flags and hand them to the family members if we have to."
Tolman adds he's honored to show the community what a tight-knit family firefighters really have.
"Even though these guys weren't from our station they were still our brothers," he said.
Capt. Root said this a small gesture so the Prescott community can mourn in peace.
