Selectmen’s Report July 28, 2012

by on July 29, 2012 in Town Government

Hello Everyone,

Our Nelson Fire and Rescue Department is no longer able to provide emergency medical rescue services. The two reasons for our present inability to provide these services are (1) we no longer have trained, licensed, and certified emergency medical service providers on the staff of our Fire Department and (2) because we do not have people with the required training and credentials, the State of NH has not renewed our Fire and Rescue Department’s license to operate an emergency medical rescue service.

We will continue to have emergency medical rescue services provided by our surrounding towns and Keene. We will be encouraging folks, who have interest in becoming trained and certified as emergency medical service providers, to do so. Fire Chief, Rick Lothrop, has developed the details describing the present status of the Nelson Rescue Department and the services that outside agencies will continue to provide to Nelson residents.

It’s very likely that it will require a considerable investment of both time and money for us to restore the medical services component to our Rescue Department. We will do our best to try to achieve that goal.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks.
Dave Upton, Selectmen
