The return of the Granite Mountain Hotshots' "buggies" to Prescott drew a large crowd July 4, 2013, honoring the 19 firefighters killed in the Yarnell Hill fire. The buggy is the crew's mode of transportation to and from fires and acts as a mobile command post/work station for the team while they are at base camp.

On the four-year mark of the Granite Mountain Hotshot tragedy, the buggies that transported the elite firefighters to their final mission are scheduled to leave town, and the fire station they called home is on the market.
