Lifesaving Award

Thank you so very much, Officer Jayson Hoff, for your dedication and hard work in earning the Lifesaving Award. If it was not for Officer Hoff, the individual who was the subject of the call would not have survived.

So again, thank you for all that you do every day to train, educate, and prepare yourself for situations such as this one, Officer Hoff.

Siren Testing

The Lea County Communication Authority (LCCA) will be testing the emergency warning sirens and public address system in the Hobbs area at 10:00am on Wednesday, April 6th. Citizens will hear a voice broadcast and one minute siren activation.

Please direct any questions to the LCCA at 397-9265.

DWI Enforcement

Hobbs Police Department will be conducting DWI Checkpoints and Saturation Patrols throughout the month of April 2016. These checkpoints and saturation patrols will be conducted at undisclosed locations in an effort to locate persons operating motor vehicles under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.


The Hobbs Fire Department has begun updating contact information and detailed site plans of all businesses within the City of Hobbs. This is an annual process the department conducts in order to have current information available in the event of an emergency. These updated plans will be scanned into our database and utilized by the staff of the Hobbs Fire Department. The responding personnel will utilize this information to better assess the needs of the incident and determine the resources needed to mitigate the issue.

The information gathered and the responsibilities of the crew initiating the Pre-Incident plan will vary according to the building occupancy and overall size of the structure. Fire crews will be visiting area businesses to gather the information for the Pre-Incident plan. It is important to keep in mind this is not an inspection and is primarily for the response considerations and emergent efforts of our responding personnel. The pre-incident planning process also plays a vital role in our Insurance Service Office rating which could potentially affect fire department funding and insurance policy rates within the City of Hobbs.

We appreciate the cooperation of all business owners and citizens with respect to this process. The Hobbs Fire Department's commitment and overall concern for the community will continue to be important as we move forward. If you have any further questions or need additional information please contact Captain Paul Thompson at 575-397-9308.
