[ARCHIVED] Rescheduled live burn

IFFD_Live Burn_Summer 2023

The public may see heavy black smoke and flames north of Idaho Falls near the intersection of 25th East and Highway 20 tomorrow morning, Aug. 29th, as the Idaho Falls Fire Department conducts a live burn training exercise from 9 a.m. to noon. 

The training was originally scheduled for Aug. 26 but needed to be rescheduled.

The structure that will be used for the training exercise was generously donated to the IFFD by the owners of Equipment Share, a new equipment rental and sales company located in Idaho and Wyoming. 

Firefighters will be closely monitoring the weather conditions and the fire to ensure everyone's safety. The public is asked to maintain a safe distance from the burn. 

These live burn simulations are an important part of the department's training program and allow firefighters to safely and efficiently fight fires in a controlled and supervised environment. 

If you have a structure that you are willing to donate to the IFFD for training purposes, please contact Station 1 Headquarters at (208) 612-8495. 

Media Note: To make arrangements to attend the live burn, please contact IFFD Public Information Officer Kerry Hammon at (208) 612-8122 or [email protected].
