We would like to remind everyone to NOT use combustible devices indoors to keep your house warm. Generators, camp stoves, or charcoal grills should always be used outdoors and at least 20 feet away from windows. Never use a gas stovetop or oven to heat your home. These devices can generate carbon monoxide, which is a colorless and odorless gas that can be lethal. If you cannot stay warm in your home, please stay at the shelter provided at the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole.


Town of Jackson Public Works is requesting that if you have lost heat that you leave a pencil-width amount of water flowing from a faucet in your home/business to ensure that pipes do not freeze and possibly burst.
