As of this week, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS has a second 24-hour a day, seven days a week paramedic level service at the Moose-Wilson Fire Station on Highway 390.  Over 10 years ago, Fire/EMS identified that the increasing number of EMS calls would necessitate an additional fully-staffed ambulance, in addition to the 24-hour staffed ambulance in Jackson. Since 2010, Fire/EMS has provided 7:00 am to 7:00 pm daytime ambulance staffing at Station 6.  The 24-hour staffing of this second paramedic level ambulance ensures timely response to 911 requests for service on the west bank of the Snake River, as well as providing response for calls throughout the county when necessary. This second ambulance also enhances the county’s ability to provide inter-facility transfers of patients from St. John’s Medical Center to regional specialty hospitals in Idaho or Utah; which has a cost savings for the patient and additional revenue stream for Jackson Hole Fire EMS.

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out. A backpack that isn’t the right size or shape for your back […]
