The procession was led by the Hotshot Team's buggies.

The buggies are the same ones used in the Yarnell Hill Fire where the 19 Granite Mountain hotshots lost their lives protecting the town of Yarnell Hill four years ago.

The arrival began with a ceremony including the United Phoenix Firefighters Honor Guard, pipes and drums. 

One of the buggies will stay at the museum indefinitely.

The other buggie will be taken to a similar museum in California which is home to several members of the Yarnell 19 hotshots.
