Wind River Eclipse: Turn off Security Lights #helpatourist
Promoting tourism in Fremont County is everyone’s responsibility. We’re all ambassadors for this great community. To ensure that we’re all equipped with the stories of Wind River Country that make our culture fascinating and unique, the Wind River Visitors Council has sponsored this #helpatourist content series.
The Wind River Eclipse is just around the corner, and the Wind River Visitors Council thanks you all for being ambassadors of our community. Every time you help a tourist, you help your town by encouraging them to stay longer, spend more time and money at local businesses, and share their experiences with fellow travelers.
The Wind River Eclipse is drawing thousands of people to our part of Wyoming, and we’re all doing our best to ensure a quality viewing experience. Though we can’t keep clouds out of the sky, we can make sure the sky goes dark at the greatly anticipated moment of totality.
This is our final reminder before the big event: Please remember to completely turn off all security lights prior to the eclipse. If they are set to turn on when day turns to night, they’ll do so at approximately 11:35 a.m. when the moon totally blocks the sun as well. Please ensure you, your neighbors, and your guests get everything out of the Wind River Eclipse we all hope for.
How can you be an ambassador? Tell visitors that if cell service and internet aren’t available to them, the best way to get up-to-date information during eclipse weekend is by tuning in to local radio stations.
