Yarnell Fire 2013

As I organize the documents...

I hope eventually individuals and businesses can see how it works in fire ...

and the next few years what I share should help Law and Forensic Weather Investigators in their endeavors going forward...

Learn tools currently unavailable in a classroom but in real time is happening here in the fire industry. My data will help those who need it in the future.

...since more than likely the law failed those YHF13' claims big time especially Fred J Schoeffler's case.

I want to do my part to help Law and Forensic Weather Investigators.

I refuse to help any Media.

Their investigation reporting is to most likely listen to their Editors.


Watch folks, how Wildland Urban Interface- WUI use to be in Forestry areas and how you are seeing it more in our Arizona deserts.

I think as the years unfold; this blog will be a good tool for Insurance companies to properly investigate Wildland Fires.

Like most recipes, my best ingredients are the love/time I put in back-channel areas to do my part to help lessen Wildland Fire issues.

Someone asked me which side am I on?

The side of integrity and truth.

Which I think possibly most

all involved to the Yarnell Hill Fire 2013


Media and Fire Investigators

God Is Watching.

F B I: You know as well as me ... being online has its blueprints ... the answers are there. Look at these topics above and use that in your searches to see who still has a copy ... I can tell you I was brutally assaulted near the locations- Station 7, Wildland Firefighting Foundation and NIFC in Boise Idaho Summer 2022 and there is a clue there--- "Boise, Idaho" has the answers - please also check the Washington Office; online history.

If you are going to search finally---

I will give you more back channel too.

Especially the document Yavapai County Sherrif's Office who took into inventory and my paper trail ended there.

I can give you the deputies names, F B I.

I spent ten years of my time doing my best to get those records listed above.

Truth matters.

May the truth be revealed soon.

Remember others may not want that information or just settled with the glazed narratives, but I want to know...

I almost died, and I want to get to the bottom of this ...

We all matter.
