October Journal - 3

October 8, 2023, 5:19pm-7pm moving information from "draft" posts for "ghost writers" to this area of journal:


City of Prescott failed to give me Darrell Willis's Yarnell Hill Fire 2013 as well as State Forestry


City of Prescott failed to give me in a Public Records Request, the public records of Darrell Willis' for Yarnell Hill Fire 2013


as well as State Forestry / DFFM failed to do the same for me yet here it is from DFFM to another entity in which now I own,


most recent one, but he has been in many prior times in my PRRs:

another one:





and it was found "lost/shuffled" in a general section that came from DFFM to another entity (tsk. tsk.)- I own it now...and now you all can see it too.


You will see later when I go over Cole and Willis's June 30, 2013, documented in a future post why I want these areas to the Public at Large.


Strange how I gained the records ... Always keep at it kids ... if they tell you NO RESPONSIVE or NO RECORDS ...


there is always gonna be a way ... keep at it. Sad to see I waited almost ten years but here ya go... hmmm:











 

This song came coming in my head as I saw the records for Willis:


 

In Closing, how come the Custodian of Records - CITY OF PRESCOTT and STATE FORESTRY / DFFM failed to give me the above information when I requested all records they had on DARRELL EUGENE WILLIS.


Just sayin'...


and the funny part is when I scan the documents at a later date and come back and add them here...you are going to scratch your head because the paper trail leads back to DFFM.


????????????????????


This is so disappointing.

----------------------------

Before Willis' file was this one:



Is this the same Whittington who Yarnell resident - paralegal Paula told me to go see when I had the Marsh case? Odd, the same name. ???


After Willis file, is this person:



I will show you later more ... short on time but wanted this at least for the Public at Large that finally after all my PRR requests almost ten years later I finally got the records and all this possibly could be on Investigative Media - let me go peak and see...

What does InvestigativeMEDIA mean to Joy A. Collura? Why did she first venture to IM Chapter One? P3


What does InvestigativeMEDIA mean to Joy A. Collura? Why did she first venture to IM Chapter One? Part Three

These questions above- I have the documents in the FOIA / PRR storage area so I will highlight this yellow as an area to come back with the actual documents but the answer is YES there is a public document. I do remember there was something inaccurate about that area though.

calvin… I hear ya. I have revisited this ‘morning briefing’ timing myself a number of times now and I am still not sure WHAT to think. – SAIR says 7:00 AM, no mention of length. – Brendan McDonough ( In Kyle Dickman interview ) says it was 8:00 AM, and lasted about 20 minutes. – Joy Collura says she met Marsh on ridge at exactly 8:07 AM and has published photographs of that moment. – Resource work order for June 30 says they were supposed to be there at 6:00 AM. – Chief Andersen says he say the GM Hotshot Buggies drive by his house in Yarnell circa 8:03 AM, and said he shook his head seeing that late time because he knew they already lost the time to fight the fire with calm winds. Granted… Chief Andersen may have seen those buggies drive by his house ( I am looking up his address now ) AFTER the ‘briefing’ and when they were headed out towards Sesame trail through town… but even so… that totally negates the possibility of Joy Collura seeing Eric Marsh all the way out on the ridge just FOUR minutes later. So fer cryin’ out loud. Which IS it? When did GM actually GET there? When did Marsh ( not Steed ) have this ‘briefing’? When did the get out to the end of Sesame Trail? When did Marsh really get out onto the ridge? When did the rest of them get up there? I still tend to trust Joy Collura’s times for Marsh’s arrival on the ridge and the actual ascent of the crew almost ONE FULL HOUR later. She was there. She saw it. She photographed it. She hikes with scientific instruments. I have no reason to doubt ANY of her ‘times’. The angle of the sun seen in the Joy Collura photos even matches what the Naval Observatory website says would be absolutely correct for that time of day at that exact latitude/longitude. As for the rest of it? ( SAIR times, work order times, other witnesses )… who knows. It all remains to be PROVEN.

Joy A Collura says

another important person to reach to time stamp this is long time resident Rick MacKenzie- he saw them that morning and that will time stamp this for you.

WantsToKnowTheTruth says

I have now done at least 3 dozen ‘flyovers’ and ‘flythroughs’ using Google Earth of the exact path that Marsh/Steed/Crew took when they left the spot of the MacKenzie video on their death march.

It is an ABSOLUTE FACT that, the moment you come around that high peak just south of the ‘lunch spot’ and the Boulder Springs Ranch comes into view for the first time… you would have absolutely NO IDEA where that trail went unless someone had either fully explained it to you… or you took the time to closely examine Google maps of the area before you went up there.

The hikers ( Joy Collura and Tex Gilligan ) have now sworn in two separate public interviews that they first met Eric Marsh that day at EXACTLY 8:08 AM up on that ridge when he was tying pink ribbons on bushes to mark the way up there for the crew… and that when they met… Eric Marsh asked THEM… “How do I get to the top of this ridge?”

That is even more proof-positive that NO ONE at that official incident briefing at the start of the work day took any time at all to make sure Marsh had the correct ‘situational awareness’ he needed that day.

And that’s just Marsh.

I think it has already been proven that even what little Marsh knew about any of those roads up there was EVER passed on to the man who would actually be directly responsible for Granite Mountain that day ( Steed ).

And the official conclusion of the ‘Special Accident Investigation Report’ is that everyone did everything exactly right that day?

Give me a big… loooong…. break.

Acting with integrity - Met expectations2. Working as a team- Met expectations3. Having a personal commitment and loyalty- Met expectations4. Solving Problems- Met expectations5. Taking Pride in excellent results- exceeds expectations6. High Level of productivity- exceeds expectations7. Being nice- DOES NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS signed off by both Steinbrink and Willis Eric is committed to making the off district crew the best it can be, and does a good job on the day-to-day operations of the fuels crew.

Work Quality- exceeds expectations7. Planning/Organization/Project Mgmt.- Met expectations8. Initiative- exceeds expectations9. Safety Practices- exceeds expectations10. Interpersonal Relations- DOES NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS signed off by both Steinbrink and WillisEric is an outstanding teacher [ where is Wildland Instructor course certificate to be a teacher ??? ] In a classroom setting, Eric is very competent in the instruction of Basic wildland firefighting. He is very good at planning and organizing his daily operations in fuels management, and safety is number one in all aspects of business. Again, Eric losses job effectiveness and efficiency by yelling at the crew and by not accepting the crews quality of work. Supervisory Positions OnlyJob Duties1. Supervisory Skills- DOES NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS signed off by both Steinbrink and Willis2. Leadership- DOES NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS signed off by both Steinbrink and Willis3. Budget Execution- Met expectations4. Council Relations- Met expectations5. Policy Administrations- Met expectations6. Ethics- Met expectationsMost of Eric's supervisory performance expectations meet the requirements. He needs to learn not to yell when jobs are not performed to his standards. He also needs to learn to assign tasks and allow his subordinates to complete the job without constantly looking over their shoulders. Paperwork is not one of Eric's strong points. While on assignments he needs to get better at all paperwork associated with wildland firefighting. Eric becomes very agitated and does not accept positive criticism well. Blames other people for his misgivings. -Previous Years Performance Plans / Goals / Training - Goal1. Project a professional image at all times when dealing with internal/external customers. -DOES NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS signed off by both Steinbrink and Willis2. As a first-time supervisor: 1) Get the job done (meeting the depts goals/ objectives) (2) keep the work area free of health and safety hazards (3) build teamwork and cooperation (4) develop member skills (5) Maintain records and reports (6) enforce dept rules and regulations - Met expectations except number 3- not met. Needs to work on teamwork and cooperation. 3. Assist in making Crew 7 the best type II crew in the Nation- Met expectations4. Provide defensible space for 3 homes per day- Met expectations5.Provide exceptional customer service- Met expectationsNew Plans/Goals/Training for the Next Rating PeriodGoal1. Be nice2. Do not yell when things don't meet your expectations3. Practice all aspects of "the Prescott Way"4. Continue with wildland fire training5. Contact Employee Assistance Program to help resolve problems that affect your personal and work life.6. Meet with your direct supervisor on a monthly basis over the next 6 months for an evaluation.Supervisor's Narrative on PerformancePay for performance needs to be justified here. What has the employee accomplished since the last performance appraisal in meeting objectives, achieving standards, improving performance and expanding responsibilities, Provide specific and detailed examples. Attach supporting documents if necessary. This is Eric's six-month evaluation for the position Wildland Captain. He has many strong points that are needed for the crew to succeed. He is an excellent classroom teacher [ where is the certification that he can be a classroom Instructor ???] and he knows what to do in wildland fire situations. He gives good direction to subordinates in furthering their wildland education/. Eric's behavior is unacceptable when reporting to work. He is un-approachable, grumpy, and will not speak when spoken to. His paperwork on wildland fires is below standards, but with help this can be overcome. I do not see Eric as being Superintendent of Crew 7 at this time, but with listed changes, he will continue to function as the Captain of Crew 7. To help you reach your goals, follow the six step plan listed above. If this plan is not followed you will not succeed as a wildland fire captain and demotion may follow. We want all our employees to succeed and we will do whatever that takes to make that happen.Eric's Self Appraisal is handwritten: Completing the work at Station 7 was great. We accomplished a lot of hard work in fuels over the Winter and we had fun and stayed positive through it all. The crew performed great during the recruit academy. The biggest thing was the crew embodying the Prescott Way daily no matter what.Recommendations outlined in the end of season report ( that season report is on my blog...to post or not to post article)Keeping the lines of communication open, providing additional training for all risk incidents, continuing to develop fuels management.I would like to be the Superintendent of Crew 7.I will continue with fire training (RX-300, S-339)and will concentrate on leadership skills development, remember that I am a teacher, and remember why to me this is the best job in the world, another words, don't forget to have fun daily. @Arizona_Desert_Walker 1 second ago78 subscribers

Now let's look at 2004 jobs and what he says almost 7 months later:2004:copy of ESM job application: August 4, 2004, City of Prescott officially stamped Aug. 4, 2004. ESM stated he had been employed by City of Prescott April 2003 to current as a WF for the Prescott Fire Dept for $12.50 hourly and his boss was Steinbrink. Stated he supervised 1-20 personnel in all aspects of Wildland firefighting and also, fuels reduction and the creation of defensible space in the Prescott basin. Application shows he worked City of Prescott fire dept 4-23-03 to application date but before that he has a gap of employment. Showed he worked Lifeline Ambulance April 2001-January 2003. So a few month gap of zero jobs. Showed he was an EMT-B started at $6.50hr. and final salary was $7.33hr with Lifeline. Application states by ESM that he completed 4 years of college at Appalachian St. University (Boone, NC) (141 Units) (B.S. degree diploma) ESM. I fact checked with all jobs- Sunrise Park Resort stated the application reported 12/98 through 03/01 at $10hr with Denny Walton as a Pro Patroller - they showed no records for him but they remember him visiting the resort but not as an employee. His ex-wife stated they went to the Sunrise Ski Resort (in person, she told me 4-10-23). The Employer said as a visitor not a paid employee. Social Sec. records would be the only area to fact check that. Now almost 7 months later2005: Application states by ESM that he completed 4 years of college at Appalachian St. University (Boone, NC) (141 Semester Hours) (B.S. degree diploma); same as Aug 04', "PAY ATTENTION FOLKS"...Aug 4, 2004 application said he supervised but now it says he went from $12.50hr to $14.50hr. and he is now working for the Wildland Division as a Squad Boss / Acting Captain but where do we yet see in his file the Squad Boss certificate or task book or red card that shows it on Master Record ??? right? 2005 is the first time ESM mentions he is a Squad Boss / Acting Captain of Crew 7. (So 2005 can be recognized as the year they became FUELS CREW - CREW 7.) In 2005 Application the difference in Aug 2004 to Feb 2005 application are he stated he made $6.50 to then $7.33 but on this application is was made a different pay scale so which one is it? 2005 he reported $7.50-$11.00. Now for the false information on 2005 application by ESM and I fact checked and verified fully- Nesbit's Surface Specialist is on record to state he never met nor had ESM as an employee but ESM put that employer down on his application. ??? as an Engine Boss making $12hr June 2002 to July 2002. The employer went back to his payroll files and checked. No. ESM was never employed by him. That is falsifying a leadership job title on his application. I went as far back to the person who in Human Resources did the fact checking...I went deep to make sure and I can state ESM lied on his application in 2005 placing him as a leadership position and he never was according to all the fact checking I did including reaching the Employer and Human Resources. Show less

now in this application, he handwrites he worked "12 seasons as a Wildland Firefighter." He stated he was an "acting Wildland Captain since September 2004." Do we see that in 2003 or 2004 in his file about working 12 fire seasons, no. ???? @Arizona_Desert_Walker 1 second ago78 subscribers

@Arizona_Desert_Walker 19 minutes ago (edited)78 subscribers City of Prescott Announcement of Employment Opportunity- IN HOUSE. FUELS MANAGEMENT FIELD SUPERVISOR. Wildland Fire Division. Pay range: $17.09 to $24.32 which beats the gap in work moment and EMT (Lifeline) @ $6.50-7.33...right? and the Ski Patrol place that said he visited (formally verified Wednesday, June 5th, 2019 at 5:14 PM with Employer) but was not on their payroll. So, we have EMT-B (appx 640 days completed), FUELS MNGT CDL DRIVER (August 1, 04) so far...where now to this posting which we are going to pay attention to the "QUALIFICATIONS" for this position: HS diploma (done) and 2 years of Supervisory experience (so was EMT-B considered "Supervisory" transporting patients and doing paperwork? I really fail to see two solid years of that in his applications or resume) (I say "shelved" not "DONE"--not in files to say he even qualified for this position possibly yet let's keep looking), NWCG red card a minimum of TASK FORCE LEADER task book completed (and in the file there is none for ESM at this year on that. So, another not qualified to even apply for position possibly), possess a valid AZ driver's license. (done), meet NFPA 1001 standards for physical fitness and all we know due to HIPAA no content but physician Dr Halterman was in charge of that action in August 2004. (unknown)...So, folks did you see already in all I provided that ESM had the following required training - task booked: Task Force/ Strike Team Leader (S-330), Crew Boss (S-230), Intermediate Wildland Fire Behavior (S-290)??? Let us look at the required knowledge had to be: Procedures, tools, materials, and equipment used in a variety of Wildland fire incidents. Budgetary practices, planning, and managing operations and monitoring programs. Supervisory practices, evaluating, scheduling, and coordination of work activities and projects of work crews. Must be skilled in establishing and maintaining to meet NFPA 1001 standards for physical fitness; able to lift 140 pounds. Sufficient and safely perform duties, operate required vehicles, equipment, and machines; read handwritten and typewritten materials. Sufficient to clearly, concisely, and effectively communicate in person, over the radio, and telephone. Freedom from mental disorders which would interfere with performance of duties as described. (You the people make the assessment as I am giving you his file in chronological order so you "Hiring Fire Leaders" out there- from what I showed you does ERIC SHANE MARSH even qualify to apply? Did it matter about the Task Force Leader as it was part of Quals and required training so at this point his file lacked training - task booked: Task Force/ Strike Team Leader (S-330), Crew Boss (S-230), Intermediate Wildland Fire Behavior (S-290)Application must be received by 5pm 3-8-05' - Willis and Jolaine Jackson sign off on this opportunity. STEP ONE dated 4 10 05. 17.0915.

@Arizona_Desert_Walker 0 seconds ago78 subscribers copy of ESM job application: August 4, 2004, City of Prescott officially stamped Aug. 4, 2004. ESM stated he had been employed by City of Prescott April 2003 to current as a WF for the Prescott Fire Dept for $12.50 hourly and his boss was Steinbrink. Stated he supervised 1-20 personnel in all aspects of Wildland firefighting and also, fuels reduction and the creation of defensible space in the Prescott basin. Application shows he worked City of Prescott fire dept 4-23-03 to application date but before that he has a gap of employment. Showed he worked Lifeline Ambulance April 2001-January 2003. So a few month gap of zero jobs. Showed he was an EMT-B started at $6.50hr. and final salary was $7.33hr with Lifeline. Application states by ESM that he completed 4 years of college at Appalachian St. University (Boone, NC) (141 Units) (B.S. degree diploma) ESM. I fact checked with all jobs- Sunrise Park Resort stated the application reported 12/98 through 03/01 at $10hr with Denny Walton as a Pro Patroller - they showed no records for him but they remember him visiting the resort but not as an employee.

We have a firefighter who was close to Steinbrink's son who feels that person could offer more on YHF13' so daily my prayer is just that. So please add that topic into your thoughts and prayers too.

If you both came and brought your own printer and paper and printer ink --- I would allow just you two to have a copy of Eric Shane Marsh's file. No one else would have it but you two and myself. I will not make copies for anyone. I have done enough in my research on YHF13'. Addressing my health only. However, you can "time stamp" it now, I would allow you a copy of the file which offers more than what is public if you came and did it here with your equipment then I would make that one time offer that I would make the copies here in person for you with your equipment.

@Arizona_Desert_Walker 51 minutes ago78 subscribers 8:26. I was there. Yes, winds changed. However, I own the records for "more" so one must question the Officials and Media ...did they know what I own? Were they (un)intentionally being disingenuous to the Public at Large? Why am I as a daughter of law enforcement and the eyewitness to that fire being asked to Summon in a court setting to have them clarify such? Hmmm. Interesting, they want me to financially do that in a judicial system that has already allowed a glazed narrative(s) ... sound bites we locked on for the Dude Fire that was well televised in 1990 and their story worked with a few whispering truth telling souls since then.

@Arizona_Desert_Walker 26 minutes ago78 subscribers 9:58. The winds. I am the eyewitness who had a Kestrel up on the Weavers on June 30, 2013. Ready. The wind was squirrely at moments. Shifts in the winds, yes. 22mph, yes but even less and more at different sections. Causal factor, possibly. However, what about what is not shown to the Public at Large yet? Outside the wind topic.

Yet, Yavapai County Sheriff's Office documented into inventory something that also requires me to do a Summon in court--- why? When the satellite images tell the story so why would I spend finances on something like that ??? Right. Why do they refuse to do the proper difficult right thing? Read more 1 Reply


@Arizona_Desert_Walker 59 minutes ago78 subscribers 7:30. Incorrect. The Granite Mountain Hotshots were not just "civilians" --- Tex and I would be labelled that word but not the firefighters that perished. They were one of the first Crews attempting to be tied to a Municipal to become a Federal Hot Shot Crew. If you look back on CDF and other regions...speak with Norb Sczcurek retired from Lake Tahoe- there was a question who was truly the FIRST to be tied to a City. To clarify, some of the first discussions of the Crew to become a Fuels Crew first than GMHS/GMIHC. Interesting "key folks" --- some firefighters that were on the deadly Dude Fire June 26, 1990, were significant roles in making the Crew 7. I will state Tex and I were civilians June 30, 2013 on the Weavers with the GMHS but the firefighters were Hotshots prior City Fuels Crew. I own their records and we can walk through each file at a later date if you want to hear their quals and credentials. Read more 1 Reply
