Teton Eclipse Team Releases Comprehensive Eclipse Manual

Jackson, WY, August 1, 2017 – Multiple local coordinating agencies released an Eclipse Community Operations Manual today, providing a single source of information related to eclipse preparation, safety, viewing, and a host of other topics.

Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole Airport, the National Elk Refuge, Teton County, the Town of Jackson, and Teton Village all provided information, regulations, and plans for the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. The manual contains information and tips for residents, visitors, and businesses designed to assist with planning and preparing for this upcoming community event.

“The collective goal of the coordinating local agencies is to realize a safe and positive community experience during this once-in-a-lifetime eclipse event,” said Kathryn Brackenridge, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Special Event Coordinator contracted by the Teton County and the Town of Jackson.

“In the face of a rare and extraordinary event, it’s been remarkable to see emergency planners, businesses and residents embrace this opportunity to welcome visitors from all over the globe to our smaller and special community.”

“A good, quick take-away from the larger scope of the manual’s message is something we’ve gathered from other communities located on the path of totality: arrive early, stay put, and leave late,” Brackenridge continued. “We hope our community uses the manual to help inform and drive good decisions for everyone during the Total Solar Eclipse.”

The Teton Solar Eclipse Community Operations Manual is posted on www.tetoneclipse.com, which provides a single source for all local information related to the upcoming eclipse. Residents, visitors, and businesses are all encouraged to visit the site frequently for the most up-to-date information related to eclipse preparation, solar viewing and eye safety, designated public viewing areas and additional essentials.
