Around seventy people turned out at 10:00 on Saturday morning to see the official unveiling of a statue that was presented to the Jasper Fire Department as it celebrates it’s 75th birthday.

Local art enthusiast Roy James said the bronze sculpture “Call To Duty” by Max Turner, which was placed in a small landscaped area at the front door of the fire department, symbolized the many volunteer fire firefighters and what they do each day for their communities.

James, who served as project manager for the effort to bring the statue to Jasper, thanked Golden Triangle businessman Tom Harken and his wife Melba, along with local state Farm Agent Brent Meaux and his wife Heidi, also Fred Rape of Jasper Lawn Service along with Mary Ashy and Marie Smith, for helping to make the sculpture possible.

A crowd of seventy people, which consisted of fireman from Jasper and the surrounding areas, along with police, emergency workers and others attended the unveiling.

Last week, Jasper Mayor David Barber signed proclamations not only recognizing the birthday of the fire department, but also fire prevention week, which began today.

Assistant Fire Chief Gary Lameroux said the department had recently received a total of ten recruits that wanted to serve as volunteers and that the future of the department was in the hands of new members as they continue to carry on the tradition of helping their community.
