Good Morning New Hampton

“Good Morning New Hampton” is a scheduled check-in program with the New Hampton Fire Department to assist our at-risk population; the elderly population, those with special needs who live alone, or residents who live with others unable to effectively communicate that help is needed.  It will allow those with limited support to maintain their independence for as long as possible. It is also helpful to those that have recently been released from the hospital or a rehabilitation facility. This program allows family, friends, and/or neighbors the added comfort of knowing that the individual is having regular contact with local personnel.

If you, or someone you know, would like more information please contact New Hampton Fire Department at 603-744-2735.
