RG247-2 Non-Commercial Research Intent Only. "YHF13' Daily Fire Updates" - Disc Two

July 2nd, 2023, 9:26am:

  • ALL The Polly Rosenbaum State Archives and History building's Reading Room YHF13 records are for this personal use only blog- InvestigativeMEDIA (John Dogherty) and Scott E Briggs must sign a different sheet for their educational purposes with the Arizona States Archive Library - AZSAL- you may redirect people with a link to my site. That is how my contract I signed was written. No copies are to be made just online for my personal reference for my personal blog.

I paid for the CDs --- with the records as a non-commercial purpose.



The documents are under strict order that it is for my personal use only [ not yours ] on my personal YHF13' educational purpose non-commercial purpose testimony blog which provides my Yarnell Hill Fire 2013 Testimony and Documentation in a research style to get documents to lead to a proper assessment / conclusion not like what we have seen for a decade from the Media and the Investigative folks out there.


I have always been non-commercial for educational purposes to see how come Sonny and I almost died June 30, 2013, but 19 did.


I always state on the Disclaimer and throughout my posts refrain from copying any of my materials just link the web address only.


My blog is set up to document everyone who arrives here and reads the content. I have a video how long you stay on each area of the posts and who you are and what you copy/save. I made sure to create my blog to protect me from the ill-mannered folks.


So, please respect / follow the disclaimers, law and rules.


Mostly, because I sign papers like this above, so I have zero concern doing this record gathering and sharing for my own personal use but if any of it circulates external from the blog- you are not allowed by law.


Get your own records as I always state.



We all matter!


I am unafraid of the politics in all this.


I will document what I do see, and these links will later be placed into the proper box number.


My curiosity to see what was on the discs and jump drive which then took priority over doing box one.


I requested the metadata of the CDs and here is that:







I want to place the documents [AZSAL-temp. location; not yet processed] with 'keeping in mind' that these records were gathered this week ( June 23, 2013 through June 30, 2013/prior appts ) at the Arizona State Archives Library- AZSAL by researcher, JOY A COLLURA.


I want to properly document the journey.


All documents were once were in the custodianship of State Forestry now Department of Forestry and Fire Management - DFFM.


DFFM, Bill Boyd, has yet to provide me, JOY A COLLURA, the transfer form records from when it went from their place to ???? but I can provide once AZSAL picked the eight boxes up from DFFM.


There are crucial documents missing from the boxes


and I requested a formal audit at the start of this year.


No status has been shown my way on that.


When the F B I reaches me about another issue - then I will let them know my concern as well with how the current permanent records look at this date. Incomplete.



Again, Bill Boyd during COVID 19 stated IRON MOUNTAIN stored DFFM documents and IRON MOUNTAIN has been helpful but limited, yet I still have not seen any transfer forms to and from IRON MOUNTAIN or from DFFM to AZSAL as I have requested all these forms from DFFM.


Zero Media / Reporters / Authors / Journalists saw these eight boxes.

So much for them doing research, eh.

None even asked to see them at AZSAL on the tenth remembrance anniversary.

???

I have heard that from time to time from entities that I am the only one who has delved as dip as I have...

and gathered as much as I have...

seems everyone accepted the redundant sounds bites that have been woven year after year and now I can say for a decade from Media.

Sigh.


Fred John Schoeffler and Joy A. Collura watched the eight boxes be unsealed for the first time in our presence along with lead staff member.


So, understand my frustrations when I hear Investigative reporter interviewing people who have caused me harm ill manners - that interview Ryman did with the Helm couple using my image without courtesy photo credit. ??? Really? Total lack of understanding what we all know back channel and we search for the documents that still remain missing a decade later.


What kind of Media are running the show here?


In my humble opinion, seems more than likely a Media that makes a conclusion and fill in the gaps versus gathering documents to lead to the conclusion(s).


Many know the truths back channel and yet we had to year after year have almost the same folks showed to us in the Media versus maybe Ryman doing her investigative duty if she wants to be labelled an investigative reporter and look at those eight boxes and see crucial documents are missing.


An official audit should be performed. Has it even begun all these months later?


Not only that but possibly certain financial sections should be reviewed and that I would provide back channel to show what entities / organizations / etc. should possibly be given a look over ...


...if the FBI just watches the general public areas to any Wildland Fire entities / foundations / organizations ... that would possibly be a good start for them.


For specifics, reach me FBI that are for the truth and not just close legit cases due to lack of resources or whatever reason I saw for DONNA GORDON....









Original Custodian: Arizona State Forestry (2013)

The office of the State Forester was established in 1966. Originally part of the State Land Department, the State Forester was established as a separate position in 2004. In 2016, the State Fire Marshal was placed under the authority and direction of the State Forester. Statutes were reorganized as the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management (DFFM) and may be found at A.R.S. §§37-1301 through 37-1426.

now:


Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management- DFFM

Transferred:

Researcher JOY A COLLURA reviewed/copied in full all eight boxes in

chronological order from June 23-30, 2023, and prior research appointment dates

which was gathered as a non-commercial purpose for the Public at Large so we all can make

a proper assessment of the June 28-July10, 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire 2013.

All documents I gathered in the ten years was for research for the Public at Large.


Very costly journey. I will never do a book or movie and only

InvestigativeMEDIA (John Dougherty) and Scott E Briggs have permission to use

my research for educational purposes only my blog content exempts ALL The Polly Rosenbaum State Archives and History building's Reading Room YHF13 records. They have to go get their own and sign a paper like I did.


Everyone else must "link" to Yarnell Hill Fire Revelations to review the material-

I give zero permission to copy / save any areas,

but those two men named above except the AZSAL files.

If I grant any permissions further, I must get a certified notarized "letter of intent" for my files exempt the AZSAL files.

Zero incoming technology communications are acceptable.

Yarnell Hill Fire Update Wednesday, July 5, 2013, 9:00 am

Fire Information Center Hours: 5:30 am to 9:00 pm


New Fire Information Phone Numbers: 928-427-3347 & 928-427-6202 New Media number: 928-427-6475

Yarnell Hill Fire Activity Continues to Diminish

Fire Facts

Fire Start Date: June 28, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. Location: West of State 89 between Yarnell and Peeples Valley

Size: Estimated at 8,377 acres Percent Contained: 80 percent containment

Cause: Lightning Personnel: 550 (includes 12 crews and 18 engines)

Aircraft: Five helicopters are assigned to the incident and available to support firefighters.


Evacuations: The evacuation for parts of Peeples Valley was lifted for residents at 6:30 pm on July 4. Residents of other sections of Peeples Valley and Yarnell, evacuated by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, June 30, remain out of their homes. The Yarnell Fire Department and Yavapai County are assessing homes and structures around Glen Ilah and Yarnell. For information on the status of your property, please call 928-777-7481. Red Cross shelters are open at Yavapai Community College in Prescott at 928-717-8210 and at the Wickenburg High School in Wickenburg at 480-213-0706. People and small animals are welcome at both shelters while large livestock can be taken to Hidden Springs Ranch on Highway 89.


Media Briefings: There will be media briefings today, July 5, at the south road block on State 89 at 8:30 a.m. and at the north roadblock at 10:00 a.m.


Fire Closures: State Highway 89 remains closed between mile post 270 and mile post 283 south of Kirkland. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has three different road blocks: the junctions of Highway 89 and Hays Ranch Road; Hays Ranch Road and Sickles Ranch Road; and at Buckhorn and Frontier Road. For updates on road closures call ADOT at 602-712-7355 or check their website at http://www.az511.gov or follow http://twitter.com/ArizonaDOT.


Fire Conditions and Weather: Temperatures are expected to continue in the low 90s. Predicted winds today, July 5, will be out of the southwest at 10 miles per hour. There is high potential for continued cooling and decreasing chance for major rain. The decreased relative humidity and increased drying could cause more erratic fire behavior. Overall fire behavior should continue to diminish due to fuels being consumed.


Firefighters will continue work on the two remaining areas of active fire. Firefighters will also support initial attack in the area as needed.


Updates throughout the day will be posted to the following websites:

Firefighters Make Progress on Yarnell Hill Fire

Fire Facts

Fire Start Date: June 28, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. Location: West of State 89 between Yarnell and Peeples Valley

Size: Estimated at 8,400 acres Percent Contained: 8 percent containment

Cause: Lightning Personnel: 596 (includes 8 crews and 44 engines)

Aircraft: Nine helicopters are assigned to the incident and air tankers are available to support firefighters.


Evacuations: Residents of Peeples Valley and Yarnell, evacuated by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, remain out of their homes. The Yarnell Fire Department and Yavapai County are assessing homes and structures around Glen Ilah and Yarnell. Red Cross shelters are open at YavapaiCommunity College in Prescott at 928-717-8210 and at the WickenburgHigh School in Wickenburg at 480-213-0706. People and small animals are welcome at both shelters while large livestock can be taken to Hidden Springs Ranch on Highway 89.


Meetings: There will be a community meeting today in Wickenburg at 11:00 a.m. at the Wickenburg High School.


Media Briefings: There will be media briefings today at the south road block on State 89 at 8:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and at the north roadblock at 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.


Fire Closures: State Highway 89 remains closed between Date Creek Road south of Yarnell and at mile marker 283 north of Peeples Valley. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has three different road blocks: the junctions of Highway 89 and Hays Ranch Road; Hays Ranch Road and Sickles Ranch Road; and at Buckhorn and Frontier Road.


Fire Conditions and Weather: Temperatures will be in the low 90s today, humidity 18-21 percent, and predicted winds out of the west/southwest at 4 to 6 miles per hour, gusting up to 12 miles per hour. If afternoon thunderstorms develop in the area of the fire, winds could increase dramatically and more erratic fire behavior will likely occur.


Today, firefighters will continue work on the eastern flank with a goal of connecting the contained areas on the northeast and southeast corners between Yarnell and Peeples Valley. On the northern portion, hot shot crews will continue to build line towards a ridge above PeeplesValley. More scouting will take place along the western flank and contingency plans will continue to be refined in case the fire becomes active again. Firefighters will also support initial attack in the area as needed.


Creeping and smoldering are expected to continue around the structures, though sometimes not showing until the afternoon, and some areas around structures are still holding enough heat to be a concern. A plan is being developed to restore utilities and infrastructure to the affected communities.


Across the nation today, firefighters on all incidents will take a brief operational pause to honor the fallen and reflect on the daily risks of fighting fire.

Evacuations: At 4:00 p.m. yesterday, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office advised residents in the communities of Peeples Valley and Yarnell to evacuate their homes. Within a few hours after evacuation, strong winds out of the North pushed the fire front into Yarnell and Glen Isla South of Yarnell. An estimated 200 homes and other structures burned in Yarnell and the Yarnell Fire Department and Yavapai County will continue to further assess the community Tuesday. Residents are advised that Red Cross shelters are open at Yavapai Community College in Prescott at 928-717-8210 and at the Wickenburg High School in Wickenburg at 928-446-1766. People and small animals are welcome at both shelters.


Number of Resources: The Southwest Area Type 1 Incident Management Team with Clay Templin as Incident Commander, assumed responsibility for the fire at 6:00 p.m. today. There are 18 engines, 18 fire crews, 8 support water tenders, 2 crash/rescue vehicles, 2 structure protection vehicles, and 4 dozers on the fire for a total of about 500 personnel.

Fire Conditions and Weather: Temperatures were in the 90s today, humidity in the teens and the winds out of the Southwest at only 5 miles per hour. There remains a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms and possible rain showers for tomorrow. Fire behavior may become erratic tomorrow because of the thunder storm generated winds, high temperatures and very dry fuels.


Fire Closure Update: State Highway 89 remains closed between Date Creek Road south of Yarnell and at mile marker 283 north of Peeples Valley. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has three different road blocks at the following: the junctions of Highway 89 and Hays Ranch Road, Hays Ranch Road and Sickles Ranch Road and at Buckhorn and Frontier Road.


Today’s Activities: Firefighters worked to secure the Eastern flank of the fire and protect other homes at risk from the evacuated areas. Air tankers dropped fire retardant on the north perimeter of the fire, where the fire remained active, and 5 helicopters assigned to the fire dropped water on hot spots in support of the firefighters.

Yarnell Hill Fire Activity Continues to Diminish

Fire Facts

Fire Start Date: June 28, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. Location: West of State 89 between Yarnell and Peeples Valley

Size: Estimated at 8,377 acres Percent Contained: 45 percent containment

Cause: Lightning Personnel: 681 (includes 15 crews and 26 engines)

Aircraft: Five helicopters are assigned to the incident and available to support firefighters.


Evacuations: Residents of Peeples Valley and Yarnell, evacuated by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, remain out of their homes. The Yarnell Fire Department and Yavapai County are assessing homes and structures around Glen Ilah and Yarnell. For information on the status of your property please call 928-427-6475. Red Cross shelters are open at Yavapai Community College in Prescott at 928-717-8210 and at the Wickenburg High School in Wickenburg at 480-213-0706. People and small animals are welcome at both shelters while large livestock can be taken to Hidden Springs Ranch on Highway 89.


Media Briefings: There will be media briefings today at the south road block on State 89 at 8:30 a.m. and at the north roadblock at 10:00 a.m.


Fire Closures: State Highway 89 remains closed between mile post 270 and mile post 283 south of Kirkland. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office has three different road blocks: the junctions of Highway 89 and Hays Ranch Road; Hays Ranch Road and Sickles Ranch Road; and at Buckhorn and Frontier Road. For updates on road closures call ADOT at 602-712-7355 or check their website at http://www.az511.gov or follow http://twitter.com/ArizonaDOT.


Fire Conditions and Weather: Temperatures are expected to be in the low 90s, with a slow drying trend causing humidities to drop to 15 percent. Predicted winds today will be out of the west at 5 miles per hour. Locally, gusts up to 30 mph may occur near isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. The decreased relative humidity and increased wind speeds could cause more erratic fire behavior. Overall fire behavior should continue to diminish due to fuels being consumed.


Firefighters will continue work on the eastern flank with a goal of connecting the contained areas on the northeast and southeast corners between Yarnell and Peeples Valley. On the northern portion, hot shot crews will continue to build line towards a ridge above Peeples Valley. Scouting will take place along the western flank and contingency plans will continue to be refined in case the fire becomes active again. Firefighters will also support initial attack in the area as needed.


Mop up will continue around structures as creeping and smoldering in some areas still holds enough heat to be a concern. A plan is being developed to restore utilities and infrastructure to the affected communities.


Evening updates will no longer be distributed unless significant fire activity occurs, however updates throughout the day will be posted to the following websites:
