Solar Eclipse safety, enjoyment, and success depends on preparedness, organization, and sharing the correct information. Teton County and Town of Jackson public safety planning efforts have been underway since 2015. The Public Safety team dedicated to eclipse preparedness consists of Teton County Emergency Management, Jackson Hole Fire and EMS, Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson Police Department, and public land partners including Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and the National Elk Refuge with support from Emergency Support Function Coordinators and support from state agencies.
Eclipse planning is in progress. Thank you for learning more about potential risks of wildfire, weather events, emergencies, and solar safety in advance of the Eclipse on August 21, 2017.
