    Unhappy 14 FF's dead-July 6th 1994

    9 years ago....it seems like only yesterday.

    On July 6, 1994, fourteen wildland firefighters lost their lives when a wind shift resulted in a blow-up fire condition that trapped them on the uphill and downwind position from the fire on Storm King Mountain, Colorado.

    The fourteen firefighters included smokejumpers Don Mackey, Roger Roth, and James Thrash; Prineville Hot Shots John Kelso, Kathi Beck, Scott Blecha, Levi Brinkley, Bonnie Holtby, Rob Johnson, Tami Bickett, Doug Dunbar, and Terri Hagen; and helitack crew members Richard Tyler and Robert Browning.



    Rest in peace....

    I cant belive its almost been 10 years,
    Yeah and Jim Roth of Storm king Mountain Technologies www.stormkingmtn.com has been the leading company in coming up with the better shelter, and I think everyone owes him a big thank you, or we would all be using the old shelter for another 10 years+

    Stay Safe,
