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.

    Thank goodness for non-hunting spouses. If it weren’t for our better halves, most of us who hunt would be completely unprepared for fall holidays. Halloween is certainly one of the days that would be far less exciting if there weren’t people in our households who think about other things besides late-season deer, ducks, geese, pheasants […]

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
