News Release
Don't Commit a Pokémon No - 07/26/17

Hillsboro Fire Department appreciates any positive activity that brings members of the community together. With the recent Pokémon Go phone app, local landmarks (called "gyms" in the game) have become hot spots for new activities called "raids". These raids involve players meeting at gyms and banding together to defeat a Pokémon boss for points. This activity in turn has increased the number of visitors to our fire stations.

While participating in these events, please remember not to block emergency apparatus from responding to emergencies and please park in designated areas so you do not interrupt daily fire department business.

The Hillsboro Fire Department reminds everyone to be aware of their surroundings while being immersed in these types of games in order to avoid serious injuries.
