Emergency Management develops and maintains the Teton County/Town of Jackson Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), which consists of several governmental emergency and mitigation plans. We also assist local businesses with Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) and work with regional partners to develop congruent emergency plans.

Our office facilitates a community exercise program for emergency responders, private partners, and others. We also deliver courses to the public including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, FEMA's "Are You Ready?" personal preparedness course, NWS's Weather Spotter course, NWS's Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, & Snow (CoCoRaHS) network training, and others.
Emergency Management maintains the County's wireless infrastructure for public safety. This includes all mountain top repeaters, base stations, mobile radios, and portable radios. We also work to integrate existing technologies such as amateur radio into the County's communication plan.
Grant Assistance & Administration
Our agency is responsible for several grants issued by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS). We also assist other public safety agencies with Homeland Security grant acquisitions and requirements.
