Pocatello Fire Department Adds Fire Prevention Jeep to Fleet

The Pocatello Fire Department has added a vehicle to its fleet that will help start conversations about fire prevention.


Wednesday, firefighters officially unveiled the department’s Fire Prevention Jeep to members of the media. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler was donated to the department by Idaho Central Credit Union and had previously been used as one of their Green Machines. From there, local businesses chipped in to fully customize the vehicle with a wrap, tires, rims, bumpers, sound system, lights and more. 


“Much like the Pocatello Police Department’s D.A.R.E. Jeep, this vehicle will serve as a conversation starter at different events in the community,” said Kim Stouse, Community Relations/Education Specialist. “After we tell citizens about the Jeep, we’ll be able to get into topics like the importance of smoke alarms, fall prevention, fireworks safety, and more.” 


A list of businesses that sponsored the effort is included below: 


Idaho Central Credit Union            

Phil Meador Automotive Group

Sound Source

“Thank you to all of the businesses that helped make the Jeep possible,” Stouse said. 


The public will get their first chance to see the Fire Prevention Jeep out in the community at Pocatello’s Annual 4th of July Parade.
