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.

    Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department sends out a reminder of the right way to release fish when you turn them back into the water. Al Langston of the Game and Fish recently sent out that reminder, so I thought I’d pass it along to you. When the water gets warm this time […]
  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
