Some friendly driving tips from AAA to help you stay safe in winter weather and slick road conditions. *Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks. *Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage. *Make certain your tires are properly inflated. *Never mix radial tires with other tire types. *Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up. *If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather. *Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand). *Always look and steer where you want to go. Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.

Goshen County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Management Launches See Something - Say Something campaign. The program encourages residents to report suspicious activity to the toll-free number or local law enforcement. "Every resident can assist by being the eyes and ears of our community. So if you see something, say something," Sheriff Jeremy Wardell said. Residents can report suspicious activity or behavior to the toll-free number 833-446-4188 or local law enforcement in Goshen County through Dispatch at 307-532-7001. Suspicious activity is any observed behavior that could indicate terrorism or terrorism-related crime. Activity includes, but is not limited to: -Unusual items or situations: A vehicle is parked in an odd location, a package or piece of luggage is unattended, a window/door is open that is usually closed, or other out-of-the-ordinary situations. -Eliciting information: A person questioning individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building’s purpose, operations, security procedures and/or personnel, shift changes, etc. -Observation/surveillance: Someone pays unusual attention to facilities or buildings beyond a casual or professional interest. This includes extended loitering without explanation (particularly in concealed locations); unusual, repeated, and/or prolonged observation of a building (e.g., with binoculars, unmanned aerial vehicle [UAV] or video camera); taking notes or measurements; counting paces; sketching floor plans, etc. “It is important for residents to be aware of their surroundings and feel empowered to report suspicious activity,” WOHS Director Cameron said. If residents see a suspicious behavior or activity taking place, they should call and it will be answered by on-call personnel in Wyoming and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The program will be administered by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. The Goshen County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Management join other community statewide participating in the national program. “It is important for residents to be aware of their surroundings and feel empowered to report suspicious activity,” Shelly Kirchhefer said. If you see suspicious behavior or activity taking place, call 833-446-4188 or, Dispatch at 307-532-7001. In case of emergency, dial 9-1-1.

We have experienced some severe rainy weather the last few days, and forecasters are saying there is more to come. Here are some tips for driving on wet roads: 1. Take your time. Slowing down is the only way to keep your vehicle from hydroplaning. 2. Turn your headlights on so other drivers can see you. 3. Give other vehicles more space. Add 1-2 extra seconds of following time in the rain. 4. Avoid the use of cruise control. To hydroplane, all you need is one-twelfth of an inch of rain on the road and a speed of more than 35 miles per hour. If you start to hydroplane, let off the accelerator slowly and steer straight until you regain control.

Today is a great day for first responders in Goshen County.

Due to an abundance of grass and weed stands in Goshen County, the Goshen County Fire Warden has initiated a partial fire ban effective July 5th. In addition to the fire ban, the Fire Warden suggests rural property owners consider taking proper steps such as mowing and cleaning weeds and debris from around buildings. Your best means of protection includes putting fire lines around vulnerable areas. Please do not park or drive in tall grass and weeds as hot exhaust systems can easily cause a fire. Control burns are allowed but not recommended. Please call dispatch at 307-532-7001 before burning and make sure you have an established clear zone with enough manpower, water & equipment to prevent the fire from spreading. If you have any questions, please contact the Goshen County Fire Warden at 307-532-7952. If you have questions or need advice on establishing a defensible zone around your property, contact your local fire department.

While most people were enjoying their time off for the 4th of July, your Sheriff's Office was hard at work. The Patrol Division responded to 31 calls for service and the Detention Division provided safe, secure confinement for 45 inmates. The Sheriff's Office is here to serve the residents of Goshen County. We hope you had an awesome Independence Day!
