THE JACKSON FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION represents local Firefighter/EMTs in the town of Jackson. Our firefighters respond to fire and medical emergencies from Station 1, in downtown Jackson and Station 7, in Adams Canyon.
The Jackson Firefighters Association provides funding for firefighter training courses and continuing education, life saving equipment aboard our fire apparatus as well as emergency funds for the families of local fallen or injured firefighters. Recently the Jackson Firefighters Association purchased new cardiac monitors that allow EMT’s and Paramedics to better and more rapidly diagnose heart attacks in the field. The Association also helped purchased a new fire engine for Station 7 which protects the Melody Ranch and Rafter J area. Simply put, the Jackson Firefighters Association is there when the county cannot afford it, and supports local firefighters just like they support the Jackson community.
THE FIREMAN’S BALL is the Association’s primary means of generating revenue for measures not provided by county funding. For the past 76years, the Firefighters Association has been hosting the Fireman’s Ball, making it one of the oldest traditions in our valley. We will host live music, local food vendors, live and silent auctions, gun raffles and of course, ice cold beer and cocktails served by Jackson’s bravest.
