New Hampshire Fire Service to the Rescue:
Literally hundreds of New Hampshire firefighters responded to the public’s call for assistance during the recent winter storm emergency. The Division of Forests and Lands, through the local mutual aid systems and fire departments, had crews working from Keene to Conway clearing roads for emergency equipment and utility crews. Our deepest thanks for all of your time and effort. The citizens of New Hampshire and we thank you!
Our Spring Forest fire training schedule will be out soon. We again plan on sessions scattered around the state. Anyone is welcome to attend these training sessions.
