Residents Reminded to Clear Fire Hydrants of Snow

Pocatello Fire Department

With increasing snow accumulation, the Pocatello Fire Department is reminding residents of the importance of maintaining access and keeping snow away from fire hydrants.


“If you can’t see it, neither can we.  Any delay in locating and accessing a fire hydrant can cause a fire to grow rapidly and have devastating results,” said Fire Chief David Gates.  “We are asking residents and business owners to assist us in ensuring their fire hydrants are clear of snow and accessible.” Pocatello has hundreds of fire hydrants throughout the city.  


Residents can assist by:

  • Removing any snow and ice from the hydrant
  • Clear a wide enough perimeter around the hydrant for firefighters to work (about 3 feet)
  • Clear a path from the hydrant to the street

For more information on hydrant maintenance, please contact the Pocatello Fire Department at 208-234-6201
