Fire Safety Week

It has been a great week, Payette Fire Department met with 413 children along with 22 adults during Fire Safety week at Payette Primary and Pioneer School. This year we emphasized on STOP, DROP & ROLL along with what to do if your house is on fire.

Coming up this Saturday 10/22 Payette Fire will have a table setup at the Payette Senior Center at 137 N. Main St. in Payette from 9am to 1pm for their Health fair. We will be doing blood pressure checks along with providing information on our smoke detector program. For any residence within the City of Payette who is unable, to replace their smoke detector batteries we will come out and replace them. In addition, if you live within the City of Payette or within the Payette Rural Fire department response area we have received a grant to provide a smoke detector and or carbon monoxide detector if you do not have one installed.

TEXT TO 911

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.
