Rescue Equipment Stolen

August 11, 2011 Jackson Hole, Paradise Valley, Teton County No Comments
AED

An Automated External Defibrillator that is kept at the Sheep Gulch Boat Ramp at the end of a popular whitewater stretch along the Snake River managed was recently stolen along with a dry bag, backboard straps, neck braces and head chocks for the backboard.  “The AED that they took is the unit that gave the 16-year old another chance at life,” says Bridger-Teton National Forest River Ranger David Cernicek, referring to a river rescue August 3rd last summer where River Rangers met a group with a 16 – year old youth who had no heart beat.  They successfully got his heart beating again through use of the AED from the Sheep Gulch boat ramp.  The unit was purchased with donations from the Snake River Fund to be available in just such emergencies.  The Forest Service asks that anyone with information about the missing equipment call them at 739-5417.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
