Payette City Fire Responds to Structure fire 11/11/2015

Click on the photo below to see video taken by Erica Padilla 



The program, known as “Text-to-911,” enables people to open a new text message and enter “911” as the recipient and then indicate their exact location and the nature of their emergency in the text message. Lt. Creech says a voice call is still the most reliable way for dispatchers to locate a person who needs help. "Dispatchers can get location information from a call even when the caller cannot tell us. A location transmitted with a text message may be less precise for responders.” Read the entire press release here.

Brush Fire 6/23/2015

Payette Rural Fire responded to Maple Ct. on 6/23/2015 for a brush fire. Once on scene units found a fire that was burning over an embankment. As brush trucks started to suppression of the fire a structure engine was placed next to a residence for structure protection. Mutual-aid was requested from Ontario Rural Fire for an additional brush truck. As the fire was being attacked from the top crews were sent to the bottom with a portable pump and hose using a creek below to work the fire from below. Fire crews were out approx. 4 ½ hours mopping up the fire. Thanks you Ontario Rural Fire for your assistance at the fire.
