This is our main headquarters station. We are housed with the Sheriffs office on one side and the 911 Center on the other. We are directly across the street from the Jackson County Courthouse in Ripley, West Virginia. Ripley is the County seat of Jackson County.
The main office of J.C.E.M.S. is located here. We have a living quarters in this building along with the two bay garage which houses two ambulance's. This station is also the closest to Jackson General Hospital. We have two crews running from this station 6 days a week, 1-12 hour crew, and one 24 hour, 7 day a week crew stationed here.
This station is centrally located geographically in the county with quick access to the interstate. Ripley is the busiest and most congested of the two towns in Jackson County with, not only I-77, but two other major highways meeting in the middle of town, Rt. 21 and Rt. 33.
During the summer months, Ripley is a very active town. We host the Country's largest, small town, 4th of July celebration, along with the Mountain State Arts and Craft Fair at Cedar Lakes Conference Center. Then at the end of the summer, we have the Jackson County Junior Fair, just outside of Ripley in Cottageville, West Virginia.
Ripley is growing leaps and bounds, and the pains of growing are showing in the burst of buildings being built and the number of business locating in Ripley.
