CAMP VERDE - Kyle and Alicia French wanted to do something special to remember the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died June 30 fighting the Yarnell Hill wildfire.

So the couple, owners of Camp Verde Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center in the Wingfield Plaza, has decided to recognize July 19 as Fire Friday, a day to remember the lives lost in Yarnell and to thank local firefighters for their dedication, sacrifice and service.

"We wanted to do something nice locally, to show our appreciation," Alicia French said. "We then decided to get others involved. People were more than willing to get on board and do something nice."

On Fire Friday, 10 area businesses will provide discounts to local firefighters and their families. Three of those businesses, Camp Verde Chiropractic, Curves and Sweet Grace Restaurant, will be offering deals through the end of the month.

"We were trying to come up with something important," Kyle French said. "When you think of what you can do, it's limited to financial support for the families. As a token to what our local firefighters do for us, this is a way that we can give back."

"You get choked up thinking about the men who lost their lives helping us," said Rosi Whited of Sugars on Main. "So you can't help but want to help their families. We all know what it's like to lose something. But when you lose someone you love, the feeling is overwhelming. Anything we can do for the loved ones left behind."

Camp Verde Ace Hardware, Golden Bone, Hairbenders, The Horn, The Merry Merchants, Sugars on Main and Wingfield Bread Company are the other participating businesses for Fire Friday.

"We want to do anything we can to support the firefighters," said Steve Goetting, owner of The Horn restaurant. "It's a shame that a tragedy like this has to remind us of their sacrifice."

Not only is Golden Bone offering free dog treats to local firefighters' canines, but the shop is also collecting cash donations for animals that had to be relocated as a result of the Yarnell Hill fire.

"We appreciate our firefighters very much," said Golden Bone co-owner Nadia Caillou. "We're very lucky."
