Pocatello Fire, Police Departments Announce “Cool Rain in the Park” Schedule


If Mother Nature is on the Pocatello Fire and Police Departments’ side, it’ll be raining in Pocatello’s parks with blue skies and sunshine a few days this summer.

Wednesday, the departments announced dates for their “Cool Rain in the Park” series. The first will be held Tuesday, June 19 at Raymond Park. During the events, firefighters station an engine in the park and turn the hoses on, giving park-goers a chance to cool off in the simulated rain. Firefighters and officers will also be on hand to talk to children about bullying, smoke alarms, and home escape planning.

“On a hot summer day, it’s a great way to cool off and meet some of your local first responders,” said Kim Stouse, Community Relations/Education Specialist.

Cool Rains have also been planned for Thursday, July 26 at Alameda Park and Thursday, August 2 at Caldwell Park. All events begin at noon, will last approximately a half-hour, and are weather/emergency call permitting.

For more information on the Cool Rain events, visit the Pocatello Fire Department Facebook page or contact Kim Stouse, Pocatello Fire Department Community Relations/Education Specialist, at 208-234-7083.
