Memorialize Prescott firefighters on Facebook

Posted:

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - One of the biggest memorial pages for the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew from Prescott, Arizona was started by a Martin County Sheriff's deputy. 

Deputy Jon Folbrecht runs the page that has grown to more than 200,000 members in 24 hours. 

Folbrecht started a non-profit organization called "The Heroes Memorial Foundation," which launches memorial Facebook pages all over the country.

Folbrecht's goal has been to create a lasting memorial for the families of our fallen heroes. ""It's really moving to see the messages we get from people who know these heroes. Some of it is just downright heartbreaking," Foldbrecht told NewsChannel 5. 

Along with words of support, you can also buy a t-shirt through the Granite Mountain Hotshots Crew Memorial Facebook page. All of the proceeds from the sales will go to families affected by the Arizona fire.
