TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The only member of a hotshot crew to survive last year's tragedy in Prescott is changing jobs.

Brendan McDonough will work for the Wildland Firefighters Foundation, based in Boise, Idaho.

He'll help raise money and awareness of firefighters who deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; He said he's fighting it himself.

McDonough was on lookout duty apart from the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died last June when the Yarnell Hill Fire overran them.
