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).
