Guns and Hoses

Local public safety officials will go head-to-head at Calfee Park Saturday, August 8 in the first "Guns and Hoses" charity softball tournament.
Funds raised from this event will benefit Safe Haven Child Visitation Center in Pulaski. The Center was created in 2008 and was designed to provide a safe, conflict-free environment for supervised visitation and monitored exchange between custodial and non-custodial parents and guardians for children who have been subject to or victims of domestic violence or abuse.
Safe Haven is a non-profit organization, run primarily on the service of volunteers. It serves the entire 27th judicial district and handles referrals from courts, law enforcement, attorneys and other organizations.
Autumn DeHart, who is a Safe Haven volunteer, said she started brainstorming this past spring about fundraising to benefit the Center. She introduced the idea of "Guns and Hoses" to the center director, Ken Hall and Ellen Mitchell, administrative assistant, and the plans for the event just grew from there.
Along with benefiting Safe Haven, this game will be played in memory of Jeff Reed, a Pulaski firefighter who recently passed away; Reed’s family members will be honored guests at the tournament.
Serving on the "Guns" team will be representatives from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office and the Pulaski and Dublin police departments.
The "Hoses" team will include players from the Pulaski Fire Department, along with the Newbern, Dublin, Hiwassee, and Fairlawn volunteer fire departments.
In addition to the game, the Virginia Department of Forestry- Pulaski County Wildland Crew, Pulaski County Emergency Management, REMSI and other agencies will provide displays of emergency vehicles and public safety information, and demonstrations will be given by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office and the Dublin Police Department K-9 units.
Appearances will be made at the game by Smokey Bear, Patches and Pumper, Fire Pup and Safe T. Sam. In addition, fire hats and badges will be given out to the first 200 children (accompanied by an adult) to arrive at the game.
Gates open at 5 p.m. and the game will start at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under.
