The Snake River Hotshots are a Type I Interagency Hotshot Crew dedicated to wildland fire suppression. The crew is stationed in Pocatello, Idaho.

In December 2014, the Snake River Hotshots moved into a new facility on South Valley Road. For the first time since the crew’s inception in 2001, we have our own building, with space for classroom training, offices, and physical training, as well as a workshop and garage.

The location of the facility near the new Cheyenne Crossing interconnect allows us to access the City of Pocatello’s greenbelt trail system for additional physical training opportunities. MORE
