A Memorial Service for Fallen Prescott Firefighter/EMT Tye James Seets will be held on Saturday March 27, 2021, at the Heights Church, located at 2121 Larry Caldwell Drive, in Prescott, Arizona.
The ceremony will begin at 10:00 AM. It will be a full honors ceremony, combining both Firefighter and Military honors. The International Association of Firefighters has deemed this a Line of Duty death and all commensurate honors and ceremony will be afforded Firefighter Seets.
The service will be open to all wishing to show their respects, with family, friends, and local firefighting family being seated first, then remaining seats for other parties will be filled. Overflow seating will be available, if needed.
There will not be a public procession to the church.
According to Fire Chief Dennis Light “the outpouring of support to the Seets/Garcia family has been much welcomed and as such we’d like to thank the greater Prescott community for all they have done to see us through this very challenging time”.
Departments wishing to send apparatus to pay their respects, for the fixed reception at the Heights Church, should contact the Prescott Fire Department Administrative office at 928-777-1700 by noon on Friday March 26. Vehicles will need to be in place by 0830 on the day of the service.
Following the Memorial Service, there will be a Reception and Story Telling gathering at Watson Lake Park, located at 3101 Watson Lake Park Rd. Prescott, Arizona.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Prescott Firefighters Charities (www.prescottffcharities.org), of which Tye was the president; or to the Mighty Oaks Foundation (www.mightyoaksprograms.org), an organization for veterans suffering from PTSD.
For those organizations that cannot donate money through the charities, flowers can be ordered and delivered to the Heights Church by 9:00 AM on Saturday the 27th.
The Prescott Fire Department wishes to express our deepest gratitude to all of the people, as well as local, state, and federal organizations that have come together to assist us with honoring the life of Firefighter Tye James Seets.
Take Care. be Careful. pass it On.
