JACKSON HOLE, WYO \u2014 Prevention-minded interagency partners are excited to announce a new visitor injury prevention campaign called \u201cOne Square Hour.\u201d The public safety measure will kick off for the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend.\r\n\r\nAgencies will support the effort by sending staff to the square for an hour of visitor contact time, and to provide visitors with a free bookmark noting the most frequent visitor injuries and prevention tips.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe hope is to reduce visitor injuries and enhance our visitors\u2019 safe and positive experience while in the valley,\u201d stated Fire Marshal Kathy Clay.\r\n\r\nThe interagency agencies involved include Jackson Hole Fire\/EMS, Town of Jackson Police and Mounted Police, Teton County Sheriff Deputies, Search & Rescue, Bridger Teton National Forest, and Grand Teton National Park. Support from the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce will assist the campaign.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe are excited to help our visitors have a great stay in the valley,\u201d said Fire Chief Brady Hansen. \u201cOften it only takes a little reminder to stay hydrated, think about safety measures like helmets and seat belts, to be ready for a thunderstorm, or to not approach wildlife. A little reminder in the form of a handy bookmark could make a difference for many visitors. Plus, this is a great opportunity for our agencies to interact with the public.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe number one injury for visitors and community members is unintended impact associated with ground-falls. Wearing helmets is an important protection addition to many outdoor activities; horseback riding, bike riding, motorcycling riding, skateboarding, rollerblading, or scooter riding. Falls in the home are common as well and handrails can greatly reduce the risk of home falls.\r\n\r\nFor further questions on the One Square Hour program or other risk reduction questions, feel free to contact Fire Marshal Kathy Clay at 307-733-4732.
