State Fire Deaths So Far This Year Surpass 2022 Total
The New Hampshire State Fire Marshal said he’s concerned about the jump in deadly fires so far in 2023. There have been six fire deaths in New Hampshire in just the first three months of the year. There were five in the state for all of 2022. The latest happened Wednesday morning in Manchester. The fire marshal said at this point, investigators have been able to confirm only one of the homes in this year’s deadly fires had working smoke detectors. “So they have a 10-year lifespan typically. And usually, there’s a date on the back side of them. That you can look at when they were installed. So check them once a month, change the batteries twice a year, and if they’re over 10 years old, replace them,” said state fire marshal Sean Toomey. The fire marshal also reminds people to keep walkways in their home clear and have a home fire escape plan.

Small Town Fire Chiefs Seminar- Bernardston MA 2023 (002)
Click on the link for Registration link
The NEVFEC is presenting its Small-Town Fire Chief Seminar. This seminar helps the rural volunteer fire chief and fire service to better protect their citizens and property and to have a better understanding of how to work with the obstacles encountered in providing rural emergency services.
We in the rural small-town volunteer fire service share similar problems and responsibilities. We’re responsible for protecting 65% of the country’s land mass and 100 million American lives. Join your fellow chiefs and department leaders from small communities and learn how to use NFPA Standards to benefit your department, how to increase and improve training, and how to recruit more volunteer firefighters.
