A memorial is being planned to honor the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots that died in the Yarnell Hill fire four years ago.

The Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial Partnership intends to place the memorial near the Yavapai County Courthouse.

According to the organization's website, their primary purpose is to help ensure that the Hotshots sacrifice, bravery, and dedication will be remembered.

The City of Prescott is asking people from around the country to submit ideas for the memorial. 

Submissions are being accepted through June 15, 2017. For more information, visit the partnership's website.
