EVACUATION ADVISORY
BUDGE DRIVE HILLSIDE


The Jackson Police Department and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS have jointly issued an EVACUATION ADVISORY to all residents of Budge Drive due to the instability of the hillside in this area.  This advisory has been issued in consultation with Emergency Management, Town of Jackson staff, and engineering professionals.

An Evacuation Advisory is a notice to residents that an evacuation may be ordered in the near future.  Those with mobility issues and special needs may want to consider evacuating at this time.  Residents with special needs requiring assistance evacuating now can call 733-1430.

Residents under an evacuation advisory should have plans in place should they not be able to return to their homes for an extended period of time.  Plans should include provisions for pets, prescription medication, and any irreplaceable personal items including photographs, insurance policies, and their 72 hour emergency kits and place them in their vehicles to be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice.

The Jackson Police Department will be going door to door to advise residents of this evacuation advisory.  Should this notice be upgraded to an evacuation order, Jackson Police Department personnel will attempt to go door to door in the affected area to advise residents of the evacuation order if possible.

Residents can go to www.nixle.com website for more detailed information related to preparation for an evacuation advisory or evacuation order.  Residents are encouraged to register for the Nixle Notification System and can do so at www.nixle.com or by texting TETON_WY to 888777.
