"But to realize the potential of the present, we need to heed the wisdom of the past." - Eric Greitens
There are defining moments that shape every person. Those moments become the slides one uses for future events and decisions. Not every event will be the magnitude of a South Canyon or Yarnell Hill, but influence us regardless.

Ron Garcia shares his experience of responding to the South Canyon fire in the days following the tragic event.
