Check your smoke alarms and close your bedroom door at night

67% of residential fire deaths in NH over the last five years did not have working smoke alarms .

In case you missed it, an excellent demonstration of the importance of interconnected smoke alarms and closing the door before bed.
#FirePreventionWeek #firesafety #CloseBeforeYouDoze Thank you Tilton-Northfield Fire District for hosting such an impactful training and NH Chronicle for airing this important segment.

What's making all the smoke in town? Fire on Morey Mtn. I got this photo from over in Orford. I could see what looks like a campfire type of fire out on the cliff.

The Hanover, Lebanon, and Hartford fire departments participated in a rope rescue drill over the last four days. Training topics were rappelling, artificial high directional (Arizona Vortex), and moving patients in a litter. Rope rescue is a high risk, low frequency operation so training like this helps keep our skills sharp!
