The Jackson/Teton County Emergency Management Agency issued an evacuation advisory this morning for an area including neighborhoods south of Broadway and east of Redmond. Residents were asked to take valuables and sentimental items with them to work, and those with mobility issues, special needs or livestock and pets were urged to consider leaving the area immediately. Officials decided not to evacuate when the first deadline for the decision passed at 8:00 am, and a second deadline for the determination was set for 10:00 am. Emergency Management Coordinator Rich Ochs explains that there is a boundary that has been determined that will act as a trigger point for evacuations should the fire approach that imaginary line. So far, the fire has not. Teton County School Superintendent Pam Shea says it is a school day as usual, but busses are on standby should any of the district’s schools be included in an evacuation area. Shea also says if an evacuation of a neighborhood takes place, students will be taken to the evacuation shelter that is set up rather than to their homes.
