The Star Card is the Idaho driver's license or identification card (ID) that adds a Star for compliance with the REAL ID security standards. Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act requires uniform standards for credentials, such as driver's licenses and ID cards. You are required to have a Star Card when boarding a commercial flight. Without a Star Card or other form of accepted, government issued identification that complies with the REAL ID Act, such as a U.S. Passport or military ID, you will be turned away.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Closure Order terminated for the Rattlesnake Creek Fire, hazards remain McCall, Idaho – The Closure Order for the Rattlesnake Creek Fire was terminated on October 4th. With the change in weather patterns and associated precipitation in the fire area, fire behavior has decreased to creeping and smoldering in the Squirrel and Pony Creek drainages, and is no longer a threat to containment objectives. Fire suppression resources continue to work in the area and some smoke may still be visible. New Meadows District Ranger Erin Phelps said, “There are still hazards in the area, including fire-weakened trees, smoldering fire, and heavy equipment operating in and around the fire area. We still have some fire suppression repair work to complete, namely a dozer line out of the Hillman Basin area that we’ve used to access the fire, and a contingency line along the southern flank, where we have a number of log decks that were generated as a result of suppression activities. We’re currently pursuing options for those decks, including potentially offering a small timber sale.” A burned landscape presents a number of safety hazards that either did not exist prior to the fire or have been exacerbated by the effects of the fire. Those travelling or recreating in the burned area are reminded to be very aware of your surroundings and follow warming signs and directions from agency personnel. Hazards include unstable terrain, displaced wildlife, hazard trees, burned stump holes and root chambers, and the possibility of flash flooding and debris flows. Additional information about these hazards is available in a handout called “Traveling and recreating safely in a burned landscape” available at district offices on the Payette National Forest. The Rattlesnake Creek fire, southwest of Riggins, Idaho, is a human caused fire that has burned since July 23, 2018 on lands managed by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests and Payette National Forest, the Bureau of Land Management, the Idaho Department of Lands, and privately owned land. Additional information about the termination of the closure order, traveling in the burned area, and rehab activities can be found at
