COVID 19 stipend for First Responders
May 4, 2020, Concord NH:
Governor Sununu announced more aid to first responders and New Hampshire cities and towns. Firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical service workers will receive an extra stipend per week for being on the front lines of the Covid-19 response. This includes law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS that could potentially be exposed on a call and includes full-time, part-time, on-call, or volunteer members. The stipends will be good for an 8 week period. There are varying amounts, the details of which will be forthcoming.
“The point really being, whether we’re providing a stipend for our front-line workers in our long-term care facilities or our first responders, we’re doing everything we can to make sure those who are on the front lines, those that are putting themselves at risk throughout this COVID-19 crisis, we want to be there for them,” Sununu said.
The state has also allocated $40 million for cities, towns, and counties to cover costs related to COVID-19. The funds can be used for purposes such as paying for child care for first responders, for cleaning or modifying buildings, or for costs associated with working from home.
For current paid Members only of the NHSFA
- If you believe that you or someone within your emergency services organization has been exposed to COVID-19 during a Covered Activity, we encourage you to complete a First Notice of Claim (FNOC) form here and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will evaluate each claim situation where an individual insured person is quarantined on a case-by-case basis when there is a known exposure and the insured person has been officially quarantined by a medical official (MD, Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), etc.).
We also need to be mindful and diligent to assure all claims that are presented include supporting documentation that the exposure occurred during or resulting from a covered activity. For medical bills to be paid, providers will need to use the proper ICD-10 and CPT coding for COVID-19.
Further, we continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our customers and associates as the need arises. While it’s impossible for anyone to predict the spread of the coronavirus and fully understand its impact, it does not alter Provident’s focus on continuing to serve you. We have the people, technology, products, services, and tools to do just that.
Fundraising event for the NH Fallen Firefighter Memorial recently was at the River Casino and Sport Bar. All week the proceeds from charitable gaming went to support the NH Fallen Firefighter memorial in Concord.
The River Casino has been a great supporter of the memorial helping to raise money to support the ongoing maintenance of the memorial and the gas for the eternal flame. The annual costs for the memorial exceed $8000. per year.

The New Hampshire State Firemen’s Association was founded August 17, 1898. The first meeting was held in Manchester, NH. The purpose was to assist firefighters and their families with financial funds when a member of the Association was injured or killed in the line of duty.
Since its inception, the Association has been able to assist families to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads while a firefighter recovers from their injuries.
New Hampshire State Firemen’s Association has always had a concern about education and legal rights of firefighters in the State. Sponsoring the annual convention each September allows firefighters to attend educational sessions and visit with vendors and to have hands on with new industry technology. Members also have the opportunity to hear from members who are on state committees that address the fire service in NH. The annual convention is also a great social event for many firefighters to visit with each other and network.
Welcome to the New Hampshire State Firemen’s new web site. Please excuse us while we work to make the web site more user friendly and provide you with a value added member experience. Our goal is to provide you with information to assist you in information going on in the association and in the state. Please check out the information about the upcoming convention, the firefighter memorial and benefits for you to belong to the NHSFA. We appreciate your patience while we update this web site.
