Mission Statement
Our mission is to minimize loss of life, personal injury, and damage to property and the environment from disasters, natural or manmade.
Agency Services
Emergency Planning
Emergency Management develops and maintains the Teton County/Town of Jackson Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), which consists of several governmental emergency and mitigation plans. We also assist local businesses with Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) and work with regional partners to develop congruent emergency plans.

Training & Exercises
Our office facilitates a community exercise program for emergency responders, private partners, and others. We also deliver courses to the public including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, FEMA's "Are You Ready?" personal preparedness course, NWS's Weather Spotter course, NWS's Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, & Snow (CoCoRaHS) network training, and others.

Wireless Communications
Emergency Management maintains the County's wireless infrastructure for public safety. This includes all mountain top repeaters, base stations, mobile radios, and portable radios. We also work to integrate existing technologies such as amateur radio into the County's communication plan.

Grant Assistance & Administration
Our agency is responsible for several grants issued by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS). We also assist other public safety agencies with Homeland Security grant acquisitions and requirements.

Equipment Research & Acquisition
Emergency Management assists other public safety agencies with Homeland Security equipment acquisitions and requirements. We also research emerging technologies to help better prepare the public and to establish greater efficiency in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

Emergency Operations Center Management
Our agency manages and maintains the Teton County Emergency Operations Center (EOC). This is the facility where major policy level decisions, disaster declarations, situation monitoring, and recovery efforts are coordinated from during a disaster.

Emergency Alert System Coordinator
Teton County Emergency Management coordinates the various methods used to alert and immediately inform the public during an emergency situation. These methods are all part of our local area Emergency Alert System (EAS).
