Medical Emergency Exercise Today

C-130

What if Teton County found itself isolated while facing a medical emergency?  Teton County Public Health, St John’s Medical Center and Teton County School District #1 will be joined by Teton County Emergency Management, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS, Teton County Sheriff’s Office and Jackson Police Department today as participants in a state-wide exercise focusing on the distribution of “simulated” emergency medical supplies to practice community responses in the event of a public health emergency.    The Exercise begins with the arrival of a National Guard C-130 in Jackson Hole transporting simulated emergency medical supplies. Then under a security escort, those supplies will be taken from the Jackson Hole Airport to Teton County Public Health office.  Public Health Emergency Response Coordinator Tammy Marshall points out that Teton County has very unique geographical and jurisdictional situations that require special considerations and coordination between multiple agencies that most areas do not have to contend with.  Marshall says residents are likely to see more than usual emergency vehicle activity throughout the community as the exercise takes place.

  • Simple steps can help you get your goat - September 22, 2014
    In Wyoming, antelope hunting is often an afterthought. We tend to focus on elk, and deer are a close second. Not many of us do a whole lot of planning for our antelope hunts. Maybe that’s partly because compared to deer and especially elk, antelope hunting can be pretty easy. As long as you’re not […]
