It is recommended that you replace your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors every 10 years. Test them monthly and replace the batteries spring and fall when we change the clocks. These simple steps could save you and your families lives.

Merrimack fire/ems was wonderful last Saturday. My son took a really bad fall and broke his femur. They did everything they could to get him to the hospital I requested and even got a mass state polic...e escort.
We are so so grateful for them and all of their efforts (even if we were emotional messes and came across as mental cases).

We will always be grateful for you!

A huge thank you to the Merrimack fire department for helping extinguish the truck fire at the transfer station today. My son and boyfriend were very lucky to walk away without a scratch. The thoughtf...ulness of the firefighters was amazing (definitely made things a little smoother!) One of the guys even brought Braiden's toy car to him after the fire was out " here you go buddy I think this is yours! See it wasn't a total loss!" So kind. Even went as far as going back to the station to get us a carseat so we could get our son home safely! The kids helped make cookies and brownies to thank them for their kindness but they will never know how thankful we are for their generosity!! Thank you again MFD! See More

Great fire department and people! The open house was terrific. I feel badly for them, though, because their fire house is so old and in need of renovations.

We have some more less than desirable weather coming later in the week. Here are some reminders about portable generator use!

U.S. Fire Administration

Use portable generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas at least 5 feet away from all doors, windows & vent openings. Never use a generator in an attached garage, even with the door open. #poweroutage #COtheSilentKiller

Take advantage of the warmer weather and clear away the second means of egress at your homes and businesses. This is also the time to make sure that the roof is clear to prevent ice dams and clear away snow. With significant rain fall predicted for the end of the week the weight of the snow will increase substantially!

With the extreme cold we have experienced many people will use space heaters as supplemental heat to stay warm. We urge you to use these devices safely. Ensure your unit is UL listed and follow the manufacture directions.

Portable electric space heaters can be a convenient source of supplemental heat for your home in cold weather, but they can also increase the risks of fire o...

Stay tuned to the expected weather later this week. Consider family needs beyond the milk and bread. Consider your prescription needs, hygiene and antiseptic supplies and spare batteries for power outages and having potable water available for extended periods.

While your clearing away the snow accumulation from the last few days make sure that you have cleared our the air intake areas for appliances and generators. Obstructed vents can disturb the efficiency of your appliance and may allow carbon monoxide and other toxic gases to accumulate.
