Idaho Power Donation Supports Gooding County Search and Rescue

Promoting safety, supporting communities and providing recreation on the Snake River are all important goals for Idaho Power — and a recent donation to Gooding County Search and Rescue workers helps the company achieve all three.

Idaho Power contributed $2,500 to train volunteers and provide needed safety equipment to the swift-water rescue team. Regional Manager Joe Kendall led a group of Idaho Power employees who delivered the donation to Gooding Country Search and Rescue officials at our company’s Lower Salmon boat launch near Hagerman.

“This stretch of river gets a lot of recreational use from our employees and community members, as well as being a staple in our hydropower generation efforts,” Kendall said. “We enjoy partnering with our local sheriff’s office, fire departments and search and rescue workers, and we’re thankful knowing this donation will keep us all safer on the water.”
