In Memory

granite-mountain-hotshotsIn Memory of Granite Mountain Hotshots

The Groom Creek Fire District mourns the loss of the City of Prescott Firefighters from the Granite Mountain Hotshots. We, in addition to the entire Firefighting family and the Prescott  area, are overwhelmed by this event as present members of the District have served on the Hotshot Crew. We also had previous Groom Creek Fire District members who were currently serving on the Granite Mountain Hotshots on that tragic day.




In Memory of Greg Nordyke

It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of a dedicated Reserve Firefighter. Greg Nordyke lost his bout with gnordykecancer after years of fighting the disease. Greg joined the District in 2010 after retiring with over 30 years of service from the City of Prescott Police Department as a Lieutenant.

Greg approached his new Firefighting Career with a great attitude serving on the off-district wildland team and on Incident Management Teams as a Liaison Officer.

Greg assisted with the Arizona Wildfire and Incident Management Academy and took on special projects around the firehouse. Our newly acquired Engine 42 will be dedicated to his memory.

You will be missed.
