Episode 92 – Preparing for a Disaster with Rich Ochs

In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits with Rich Ochs. Rich discovered Jackson Hole after taking a summer job in the Grand Teton National Park over 20 years ago. He now holds the important role of Teton County Emergency Management Coordinator. Rich has helped Teton County through many big events that could have been chaotic if they weren’t planned out properly, such as the solar eclipse of 2017 and Zac Brown at Rendezvous Fest.

In this episode, Rich talks about crisis management, averting community crisis, and building relationships. Stephan and Rich also discuss the importance of having a family disaster plan and the Teton County COVID19 response.
