INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are proud to announce Jason Games, a Rockville, Ind. resident, as a 2014 honoree of the Colts Anthem Angels program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Games will be recognized at the Colts home game this Sunday, October 19, 2014, for his outstanding contributions to the community.
In his eighteen years with the Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department and his ten as Chief, Jason Games has been a dynamic figure in his community. Chief Games worked his way through much of the state-offered training in several categories, often to the highest possible degree. As a Hazardous Material Technician, Fire Officer, and paramedic, Chief Games educated himself and, in return, those around him; in his time with the department, he has trained over 1,200 students.
Chief Games is also an advocate for his fellow man. A colleague proudly reports: "He is always looking for grants and other alternative sources to provide his men with the proper gear and training they need to save others." Furthermore, the department has obtained all new fire trucks during his tenure. Speaking to the security and morale Chief Games has provided the community the colleague continues, "He took a poor, underfunded volunteer department and turned it into something more: a department that the community he serves is proud to call its own."
As part of the Homeland Security Department's district task force he also assists communities beyond his own; he reported to sites in both Henryville and on the East Coast after each were impacted by tornadoes and Hurricane Sandy, respectively. He is an expert in response and safety, whose commitment to volunteerism is an extension of his career outside of the fire department. Chief Games is a civic-minded man who, to quote another colleague, "is the type of person that goes the extra mile to make sure at the end of the day everyone comes home to their families safely."
It is our pleasure to honor our Anthem Angel, Jason Games.
