Cass County Fire and Rescue Venturers

The Cass County Mutual Aid Association, in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America will be holding its first monthly Cass County Fire and Rescue Venturers meeting at the Cass County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) on Monday, November 24 at 7:00 pm. The CCEMA is located on the northeast corner of the Cass County Fairgrounds.

The program is teen-driven. Members will decide what areas of fire and rescue they would like to investigate and adult advisors will act as resources for the venturing crew, facilitating their learning. Teens who are freshmen in high school through 18 years old are invited to attend. There is a $15 membership fee due at the second meeting. The hope is that, after attaining the age of 19 years old, program participants will join their hometown fire departments, preserving the heritage of volunteering in Cass County. Please call 250-8139 for more information.

The Cass County Mutual Aid Association, in partnership with Boy Scouts
of America, is starting a Fire and Rescue Venturing Program for
high-school-aged young adults county-wide.
The purpose of the Fire and Rescue Venturing Program is to recruit and
retain firefighters and EMTs throughout the county. By recruiting
high-school age young adults and exposing them to the exciting careers
of fire and rescue, they will learn the basics of EMS and fire safety
and suppression with the intent of transitioning into their local
volunteer fire departments upon graduation upon their 18th birthdays
or graduation from high school, whichever comes later.

The bi-weekly meetings of the Venturers will be held at the Cass
County Emergency Management Agency in Weeping Water, NE. They will
emulate real fire department business meetings and experienced EMTs,
first responders and firefighters will provide training. The Venturers
will also apply concepts, techniques and skills they have learned
through hands-on activities and mock rescue drills outside of their
meeting times.

They will have roles and responsibilities within the program mirroring
a real fire department as well, with adult advisor counterparts.
Through this model, the Fire and Rescue Venturing Program will provide
Venturers with leadership opportunities, the ability to steer their
own program, to have some control over what areas of fire and EMS they
want to explore and to give them opportunities for success.

The Cass County Mutual Aid Association Venturing Program, although
focused on fire and rescue, will also adhere to the core goals of the
Boy Scouts of America Venturing Program. Young adults involved in
Venturing will experience a program that is fun and full of challenge
and adventure, become a skilled training and program resource for Cub
Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other groups, acquire skills in the areas of
fire and rescue, experience positive leadership from adult and youth
leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles, and
have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive environment full of
fun and adventure.

Venturers are expected to know and live by the Venturing Oath and Code.
They promise to be faithful in religious duties, treasure their
American heritage, help others, seek truth and fairness and act with
honor, dignity and fairness.
There is a reward and recognition program associated with Venturing which will honor participants for their achievements on a quarterly and an annual basis.
The Venturing Program participants will work
together on a collective goal and, at the same time, will be able to
explore other areas of expertise and may excel independently from the

The hope of the Mutual Aid Association is that this Venturing Program
will truly be a county-wide, collaborative effort with each fire
department taking some ownership and contributing to the program in
whatever capacity in which it is able.

Teens who are interested in joining the Cass County Mutual Aid
Association’s Venturing Program or adults willing to assist are
encouraged to call the program coordinator, Ann Robbins, at 250-8139
for more information. Brochures explaining the program are available
at the Cass County Emergency Management Agency and at individual fire
departments throughout the county.

  A Season of Gravy!

 There can be no better holiday, then a festival of Feasting, and the ceremonial  Watching of College football

I mean what do we work hard all year for?


This is a great Country!

I am a little concerned however about this recent "Fitness Fashion Trend" that is gaining momentum in Louisville. I had the great opportunity to interview Shannon Josoff and it left me feeling guilty about what I plan to do for the next few days:

Eat and Goof Off

She just SOUNDS so darn Healthy when you talk to her. She was using a cell phone, and I kept hearing these loud "Clinks" like she was lifting weights while we were talking! 

She was pumping iron,

and I was thinking pumpkin pie..

For some reason, I get a mental picture of Shannon shaking her head and scowling at the idea of me with whipped cream behind my right ear, and a huge Apple Pie in my sights. Gulp!

I know she is right, she has the combined weight of the world's medical community on her side, and I have the combined weight of several Yams, Mashed Potatoes, Drumsticks and Stuffing - plus 2 helpings of PIE!

I have the additional burden of a very great cook for a wife, and we had a feast, this last weekend in preparation for the official Family Feast on Thursday. A Pre-Feast Feast


Well, I figure it is gonna be LENT before we know it, I will give up food for 40 days, plus I plan to work up a real sweat watching Nebraska Humiliate Colorado on Friday.

  I can always tell Shannon, ok, ...I give up - Give Me the Works!

She will get me back in shape in time for next Year's Feast!
