We were happy to be able to assist LFD with a rescue on Smarts Mountain today!

Thank you to the Hanover and Thetford fire departments(as well as Orford Fire for providing coverage)for assisting Lyme with an injured hiker this afternoon on Smarts Mountain. Along with these departments the NH Fish and Game and NH National Guard brought additional resources including the first response with a helicopter to Smarts Mountain since 1971.

The patient was quickly transported to DHMC and all personnel made it back safely off the mountain.

We are incredibly lucky to have such impressive resources available to provide quick patient transport to DHMC. It would have been a long trek off the mountain tonight and to know he was at the hospital before we were done cleaning up was incredibly impressive.
