Idaho Power Coloring Contest Teaches Kids about Wildfire Safety

School’s out for summer (or soon will be) and many parents are looking for activities for kids. From now until July 14, Idaho Power is holding a coloring contest to help educate kids on the importance of wildfire and firework safety as the Fourth of July draws near. Entries will have a chance to win a basket of summer toys worth $50.

More details on the contest, how to enter, and the full terms and conditions can be found at

Idaho Power also reminds customers that preventing wildfires helps prevent power outages. Should outages from wildfires occur, have an outage kit prepared in advance. Kids can help gather items for the kit, like bottled water and non-perishable food. For a full list of recommended items and other tips on what to do if the power goes out, visit
