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.

    A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region today, which will allow temperatures to become warmer and closer to average statewide.  However, some lingering low-level moisture and daytime heating could trigger a few hit or miss thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours.  Gusty winds and lots of lightning will be […]
  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
