The Boise Fire Department and Ada County Paramedics have responded to four rescue scenarios in the foothills in the last two weeks. Spring, a time of year where water levels are rising, animals come out of hiding, and flowers start to appear. But with warmer weather, first responders have been sent out on four rescues in the foothills in the past two weeks. "Whether it's people crashing on their mountain bikes and having concussions or broken collar bones or broken bones to dehydration to anxiety attacks as well as significant calls like cardiac arrest, so it's a pretty wide range of things that occur, up in the foothills" said Cpt. Luke Miller of the Boise Fire Department. When dispatch gets an emergency call in the foothills the Boise Fire Department responds out of Station 1 near the Boise Bike Park.
