Chino Valley's 4th of July celebration in the Community Park will include a "Bell Ceremony" at 4 p.m. to honor the 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters who lost their lives in the Yarnell Hill fire.

Mayor Chris Marley will read the names of those who died, including two Chino Valley men, two Paulden men, and a Chino Valley High School grad whose current home was in Prescott Valley.

The residents of Chino Valley and Paulden are greatly sadden by the loss of these brave young men. Here are a few sentiments from local citizens.

"We need to pray for these families as it is going to be a tough road ahead for them and we need to help where we can." - Darlene Westcott

"I have known Wade Parker since he was born and have been friends with his dad Danny, who is also a firefighter for over 20 years. Wade grew up at the fire station. Firefighting was his life. You couldn't ask for a nicer young fellow. It's a tremendous loss." - Dave Mazy

"I remember Wade Parker well, and he was a fine young man. I remember him telling me when he was graduating that he wanted to be a firefighter. I was proud of him because he wanted to give back to our community." -

Glenna Hudson, former librarian at Chino Valley High School.

"This is a painful reminder of the brevity of life on this earth. The folks that give their lives in service to their community have a special place in our hearts." -Mayor Chris Marley
