Yarnell Hill Fire 2013
Members of SYCSRT were the first YCSRT units to arrive on scene on Sunday morning. We were initially assigned to conducting notification of residents in the immediate path of the fire of the YCSO order for an immediate and mandatory evacuation. Once those notifications had been completed our units operated road blocks to limit access to the evacuated areas to emergency crews and to assist residents with retrieving family members, medications, pets, etc. from homes being threatened by fire.
The entire following week, SYCSRT was again called upon to man the road block on Highway 89 just north of Congress.

Crown King Area “Gladiator” Fire 2012
The Southern Unit of YCSRT was contacted by Sgt. Martin concerning the need for a road block on roads entering Crown King from the south. There was a concern for people entering into an area where the Gladiator fire was growing and endangering the town. It was decided that the bottom of the Crown King Trail (at the “CK” rock, that connects to FS 711, needed blocking as well as the FS 362/FS 192 roads intersected.
The unit responded and set up blocks at the two locations. It was decided to maintain a “soft” barricade (unmanned) at the 362/192 intersection and concentrate on the more important CK trail. Shifts were set up to maintain day watch and turn back the public from venturing up the road. Harry Tilly, Tom Mueller, Mike Seltzer, Pat and Linda Brown, JR Borsos, Ed Wade, Doug Jarmuth, and Jim O’Neill all responded and we maintained security until the 27th when the public were allowed back into town. Members worked a total of 329 hrs and drove 4,125 miles!
