Hailey Fire and Rescue Department

What We Do

The Hailey Fire & Rescue Department provides the most comprehensive fire protection and rescue services possible while maintaining a reasonable cost to its taxpayers.

The Hailey Fire & Rescue Department is a combination fire department. There are currently four full-time firefighter/EMTs providing administrative support to approximately 25 paid-per-call or "volunteer" members. The paid-per-call members of the department are paid to attend training sessions and when responding to emergency scenes.

Our department responds to approximately 450 emergency calls per year. Of these calls, about 60% are emergency medical calls. The remainder of the calls is a combination of structure fires, wildland fires, mutual aid assistance, vehicle fires, rescue situations, and false alarms.

The Hailey Fire & Rescue Department consists of up to 25 paid-per-call members, a full-time fire chief, a volunteer assistant fire chief, a full-time fire marshal, a full-time fire inspector, and a full-time administrative assistant. The City currently has just one station located at 617 South Third Avenue. Our Business telephone number is (208) 788-3147.

The Fire Department is divided into two divisions, Administrative and Operations. The full-time personnel conducts virtually all administrative tasks such as plan reviews for new construction, fire inspections, fire investigations, and other routine administrative functions.

Both the full-time personnel and the paid-per-call firefighters are part of the operations division of the department. The operations division is responsible for medical response, fire suppression, maintenance, communications, support services, etc.

The paid-per-call members of the Hailey Fire Department serve in many capacities. Men and women over the age of 18 who desire to participate in the fire service are eligible to become members of one of the various membership categories. We routinely conduct new member orientation and training in February and September. Contact us at the number mentioned above to obtain more information.

A. You must first determine where the crime occurred. The agency having jurisdiction will take your report and determine what follow up work must be done. Reports can be made in person, over the telephone, at the scene of the crime, or in some instances via facsimile machine. You should always consider filing a theft report even in the event that it is a small loss and you believe the property is not recoverable or your deductible is too high to cover the loss. In some cases, we have recovered stolen property from cases filed years prior while investigating a new case. Many times we learn that property is stolen but we have no case or victim to return it to. This occurs quite frequently in the case of bicycle thefts.
