Tulare County Issues Proclamation to Honor the Arrowhead Interagency Hotshot Crew

On December 13, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors honored the Arrowhead IHC for their 30 years of service, their role in wildfire response and management in California and throughout the United States, and for their hard work and dedication to maintaining the safety of the crew and the public throughout the years.

In the first photo, the crew receives the proclamation: John Goss (Arrowhead Superintendent), Jesse Schmidt, Roberto Garcia, and Joe Suarez (Arrowhead Captain), and District One Supervisor Allen Ishida.

In the second photo: Joe Suarez, Roberto Garcia, Jesse Schmidt, and John Goss.


The National Park Service established its Interagency Hotshot Crew program in May of 1981, the Arrowhead Hotshot crew being one of the three crews formed at that time.  These three crews were the first non-Forest Service Hotshot crews established.  They were also the first Hotshot Crews to be funded by the Department of the Interior.  

Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks has been the home unit for the Arrowhead Hotshots since the crew's inception.  The crew's work center is located in the Grant Grove district of Kings Canyon National Park, California.
