POSTPONED – 3/16/2020 Today we made the difficult decision to postpone the Pocatello Safety Fest scheduled for April 14-16, 2020. We are doing this at the recent recommendations to enhance the health and safety of the community, minimizing the spread COVID-19 (Coronavirus).


As you know from past Safety Fest events, the health and safety of our community is the top priority. We are looking at rescheduling the event in October 2020. More decisions will be made and more communication will come in the coming months. These measures are being taken out of an abundance of caution, hoping to helping slow the transmission of COVID-19, keeping our community safe and healthy. 


Thank you for understanding and your support. Please pass this message along to others in your organization who it effects. If you have not already done so, click HERE to opt-in to our email list and stay up-to-date on this event.

2020 will be our 11th year
