Jackson Volunteer Fire Rescue Association Hosts Annual Ball

Jackson Volunteer Fire Rescue Association this weekend marks its 72nd annual Fireman’s Ball; raising money for firefighter training courses, life-saving equipment and emergency funds for the families of injured firefighters. This year’s chairman of the Fireman’s Ball, James Powell says the Fireman’s Ball is the Volunteer Fire Rescue Association of Jackson’s primary means of generating revenue for measures not provided by county funding. Such purchases, he says have included emergency equipment aboard the fire apparatus.  Powell recounts, “Two years ago we purchased new Hurst tools or “Jaws of Life” – they’re now on the rescue unit downtown – and a number of years ago, we purchased thermal imaging cameras which allow us to see heat inside of burning buildings.”   Last year, Powell says the event raised over $20,000 for the firefighters.  In addition to the socialization, dancing to a live band and bidding on roughly 500 silent auction items, each year the firefighters provide a significant door prize.  Powell says every ticket enters folks in to win the grand raffle prize which this year is an entire grass-fed buffalo from the Jackson Hole Buffalo Meat Company and a freezer to keep it in. Doors open at 6:00 pm and dinner will be available from local vendors there.  Admission is $25 per person or $40 per couple.

I was a little fella once, and I remember counting down the days until December 25th. There were no visions of sugarplums, but pocket knives, snowshoes, shotguns […]
  • Happy Thanksgiving, Wyoming! - November 27, 2014
    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
  • Very Windy in Many Areas, Developing Light to Moderate Snow - November 25, 2014
