On Friday January 6, 2017 just after noon Payette Rural responded to a roof collapse of a barn with a horse trapped. On scene crews were able to remove part of the roof and move debris to safely rescue the horse. The horse received some minor cut from the collapse.
The Payette Fire and Rescue, Ontario Fire & Rescue, Payette County Sherriff's Office, Ontario Police Department, Treasure Valley Paramedics and OSP responded for a river rescue on the Snake River Monday morning.

Payette Fire Assists With Senior Project
Payette Fire teamed up with multiple agencies on Sunday, to shoot a senior project video on drunk driving. We hope that the end project really brings awareness to people on the consequences of drunk driving. We were honored to be apart of this!
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.
