Lodging Operator Emergency Checklist Released

Gallatin County Emergency Management

Emergency Management recently completed the development of an Emergency Checklist for lodging operators with the help of Hebgen Basin Fire District, Big Sky Fire Department and the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office.  This checklist provides operators of lodging facilities information on what they should be doing when large incidents are affecting their facility, or may affect it in the future.  People visiting our communities are often challenging to effectively communicate with, and have different needs during a large incident than people who live here.  Lodging operators are a critical link between emergency officials and their current, and future, guests at their facilities.  With the ability to now provide affected lodging facilities this checklist everyone will be clear on roles and responsibilities ensuring clear information is provided to our visitors.  More information is available in the Business Continuity portion of ReadyGallatin.com.
