Ferrellgas Community Involvement
Program Dedicates New Propane Bobtail to Fallen Heroes
commemorate the lives of the 19 firefighters of the Prescott Fire
Department, a group commonly referred to as the Granite Mountain
Hotshots, Ferrellgas unveiled a charity bobtail propane delivery truck
in their honor.
This group of firefighters lost their lives while
battling a 2,000-acre forest fire on June 30, 2013. Devastating the city
of Prescott, Arizona and making headlines across the world, this is
considered the worst loss of life for a wildland firefighting crew in
the U.S. in more than 80 years.
This bobtail joins a fleet of charity propane delivery trucks offered by Ferrellgas as part of its
Community Involvement Programs. This specific delivery truck will benefit the Prescott Fire Fighter Charities.
Founded in 2008, Prescott Fire Fighter Charities is an
organization that seeks to provide aid to members of the community
during their time of need.
