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.

    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
