Hooksett Selected as Test Site For Open Fire Permits Online
New On-line Open-burning Permit System Up and Running
The Town of Hooksett is one of 15 New Hampshire communities participating in a pilot program offering web-based open fire permits. This new system, administered by NH Department of Resources and Economic Development, Division of Forests and Lands, was developed by Sovereign Sportsman Solutions based out of Tennessee, the same company that handles on-line fishing and hunting licenses for NH Fish and Game Department.
Residents will be able to visit the Division of Forest and Lands website, fill out the required information, and print off a permit, all without leaving their home. The cost of an on-line permit is $3.00. The on-line system is an option to, and not a replacement for, the paper permit that you can currently get at no charge at the fire department. The system is being tested until summer 2014 when it will be launched statewide.

This program originated in May of 2016 through the Manchester Fire Department. Proven to be successful in helping those overcome addiction, the Hooksett Fire Rescue Department sought to offer this same program on a local level to our residents. The program is simple: Those looking to initiate the first step in seeking recovery / treatment assistance for substance abuse can come to either one of the Hooksett fire stations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There, they will receive a medical screening by the on-duty Firefighter/EMTs or Paramedics. Next, they will be transported directly to Serenity Place in Manchester. If an individual requires emergent evaluation and/or treatment, they will be transported to the CMC – Emergency Dept. before continuing on to Serenity Place.
