FIRE TRAINING ANNOUNCEMENT
Boise Fire Department will be conducting a "no fire" (smoke only) exercise over the next couple of months at 7324 West Hummel Drive in Boise.
BEWARE OF SOLICITORS ASKING FOR CASH DONATIONS FOR THE FIRE DEPARTMENT:
Boise Fire Department does not solicit, nor do they make phone calls asking for donations, especially for the fire department burnout fund. Beware of anyone who calls saying they are asking for money for the fire department. Boise Fire Department's fund-raising activities are all public events in which there is no solicitation by phone or door-to-door.
ICE ANNOUNCEMENT AND PRECAUTIONS:
As the temperatures hover close to freezing, areas of ice in ponds around Boise and on the Boise River remain a dander. Do not attempt to walk on the ice. If your pet becomes trapped in the water, please call 911 and let Boise Fire Department's dive team take to the rescue. They have the knowledge, training, and the proper tools to make a successul rescue without injury to any person. Just being in water for five minutes can cause hypothermia in a humnan. Let safety for yourself first be your guide when near ice.
