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.

Maybe that’s partly because compared to deer and especially elk, antelope hunting can be pretty easy. As long as you’re not […]

Your skinning knife’s on your belt. Your license is in your back pocket. Your cartridges are … uh, oh. They’re sitting on the seat […]
