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.
