One proclamation is on the agenda for Thursday’s Pocatello City Council meeting. At the meeting, Mayor Brian Blad is scheduled to proclaim October 9 through October 15 as “Fire Prevention Week” in Pocatello. This year’s theme is “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years.” Firefighters are seeking “to educate the public about the vital importance of replacing the smoke alarms in their homes at least every ten years and determining the age of their smoke alarms by checking the date of manufacture on the back of the alarms.” The proclamation was requested by the Pocatello Fire Department and will be accepted by Chief David Gates. Thursday’s meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
