History: New toys
October 10, 2013
"Snowmass rescue upgrades equipment," announced The Aspen Times in October 1981. "A memorial fund in the name of Snowmass resident Jeff Kest has accumulated enough money to buy new rescue equipment for the Snowmass Fire and rescue station." Kest was one of nine who died in a two-airplane collision in June 1980. He was the Snowmass Rescue Chief, an emergency medical technician, a first-aid teacher and village squire for the Village Property Management Co. of Snowmass at the time of the accident. He also was instrumental in obtaining a new ambulance just before his death.
