We know that this can be a very difficult time of year for many individuals, and want you to know that there is always help. If you, or someone that you know, is feeling suicidal, PLEASE reach out for help! There is always someone available to listen!

Some of the members of Blackfoot Firefighters had the chance to go to Idaho Falls and listen and learn from Curt Isakson for the last 2 days, and it was well worth the time of anyone who went.

Thanks to Blackfoot Fire Department, IF Fire Department, INL Fire Department, Eastern Idaho FOOLS, and Eastern Idaho Fire Chiefs Association for bringing him to Idaho Falls.

East Idaho State Fair is here, and in full swing! We would like to offer a few tips to help provide a safe and enjoyable time for everyone attending the fair!

1-Please be aware of our first responders and clear a path if you see them responding at the fair.

2-Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! With the warm weather it's important to drink WATER.

3-Keep track of your children at all times.

4- Don't drink and drive! It's not worth putting yourself or other's safety in jeopardy!

5-Have fun and enjoy the Eastern Idaho State Fair!!

🚨FAIR SAFETY TIP 🚨

Blackfoot Police are reminding parents and guardians to take a photo of their child the same day they go to a big event like a fair or parade.

This potentially will allow foot patrol, bike patrol, detectives, and uniformed officers to locate the lost child faster in the event they are separated from their parents or guardians.

Taking the picture the same day allows officers to know exactly what to look for and increase the chances of locating the lost child faster.

Our thanks to the College of Eastern Idaho for loaning us their driving simulator! It has been a great experience for all of our Firefighters as well as our Explorers. It has also helped our City officials see that driving an ambulance or fire truck is not even close to driving a car.

Stay safe!!
