ROCHESTER — Chief Mark Klose reports that no outside burning is allowed in Rochester today. 

Due to critically high fire danger, a red flag warning is in effect and outdoor burning is prohibited throughout the city. Very dry air will result in low humidity which, paired with northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph, would allow fire to grow quickly.

The danger is expected to subside by this evening once forecasted rain arrives, but residents are asked to exercise extreme caution to prevent fires from starting throughout the afternoon.

Chief Mark Klose is pleased to announce that the Rochester Fire Department received 18 donated smoke alarms that will be distributed to residents in need. 

The American Red Cross donated the smoke alarms to Rochester Fire, which will carry them on each of its fire trucks and distribute them on an as needed basis. 

“Every single home needs to have working smoke detectors, and this donation will help residents and potentially save lives,” Chief Klose said. “We are grateful for the American Red Cross and its support of our department.”

Unlike a separate program made possible by a grant, firefighters will be able to provide the alarms by the Red Cross to any household without working alarms, as long as supplies last.

Chief Mark Klose reports that residents should be a aware of a scam involving an individual falsely claiming to be collecting donations on behalf of the Rochester Fire Department. 

A resident reported receiving a phone call yesterday from someone soliciting donations on behalf of the department, however neither Rochester Fire nor the Rochester Professional Firefighters Local 1451 are currently conducting any fundraisers.

Residents should disregard any calls they receive claiming to come from either group requesting donations. 

“I want to be certain that residents don’t fall victim to a scam while believing they’re supporting a good cause,” Chief Klose said.

To avoid falling victim to these telephone scams, Rochester Fire recommends that residents follow these tips outlined by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

  • Don’t answer calls from unknown numbers. Let them go to voicemail.
  • If you answer and the caller (often a recording) asks you to hit a button to stop receiving calls, hang up. Scammers often use these tricks to identify, and then target, live respondents.
  • If you receive a scam call, write down the number and file a complaint with the FTC.
  • Ask your phone service provider if it offers a robocall blocking service. You can also visit the FTC’s website for information and resources on available robocall blocking tools to help reduce unwanted calls.
  • Consider registering all of your telephone numbers in the National Do Not Call Registry. Access the registry online or by calling 1-888-382-1222.

These scams can also be reported to the FTC at 877-382-4357, as well as the Rochester Police Department at 603-330-7127.

Chief Mark Klose is pleased to announce that the Rochester Fire Department is participating in a federal grant program that will allow firefighters to provide and install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for residents in need. 

The Rochester Fire Department will offer free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to residents of owner-occupied homes where senior citizens and/or children reside. In the coming weeks, Rochester firefighters will visit eligible homes and assess their need for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, then install the devices throughout those dwellings. 

 

Rochester is one of just 21 communities selected to participate in the Get Alarmed New Hampshire Fire Prevention and Safety Grant program through the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

To qualify, single family homes must be owner-occupied and either have children age 5 and under and/or adults over the age of 60 living in the home. Residents of rental properties should contact their landlords if they have any concerns about smoke detectors in their home. 

According to the National Fire Protection Association, the populations most at risk of dying in a in residential fire are children under the age of six and adults over the age of 59. 

“Fires spread extremely fast, and having smoke alarms is the most basic step anyone can take to protect themselves from tragedy,” Chief Klose said. “I’m grateful that we were selected to participate in this program, and I encourage anyone who qualifies to reach out to us and have our firefighters come assess their needs.”

“All too often we encounter homes with missing smoke alarms or alarms that are older than ten years old. The opportunity to increase the level of safety in homes across the city with a no cost option to our great residents is a win win for everyone,” said Rochester Professional Firefighters President Sam Morrill.

From 2005 to 2015, New Hampshire had 107 residential fire fatalities. In 69 percent of those cases, the homes did not have working smoke alarms. In the City of Rochester alone, three people died in fires inside single family homes without working smoke alarms in the past three years.

To sign up for a free home safety inspection and installation of free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, please call the Rochester Fire Department at 603-335-7545.

On February 26, 2018 at approximately 4:55 A.M. Rochester Police, Fire and Frisbie Memorial Hospital EMS responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Meaderboro Road and Evans Road. The initial report was that a single vehicle had struck a tree.

Officials on scene determined that a 2006 Toyota Scion being operated by Mark Howard, 48 of Farmington, New Hampshire was travelling South on Meaderboro Road when he swerved to avoid a deceased animal in the roadway.  Howard lost control of the vehicle due to the icy road conditions and he struck a tree head on. The Scion sustained significant front end damage. Howard was transported to Frisbie Memorial Hospital with minor non-life threatening injuries. The roadway was shut down for a short period of time to allow the vehicle to be towed from the scene.

If anyone has any information in reference to this accident they are asked to contact Officer Seager at the Rochester Police Department at (603)330-7128.

Fire Department Invites Elected Officials to Visit and See Its Work Up Close

ROCHESTER — It was 11 a.m. on a Monday, but the men on the Rochester Fire Department’s D Shift haven’t gotten around to eating breakfast yet.

They had been dispatched almost constantly since early that morning, responding to the types of medical calls that have been a major factor in the dramatic increase in call volume firefighters have had to handle in the years since many of the shift’s veterans first joined the department.

As of noon on Dec. 18, Rochester Firefighters had answered 2,776 calls for the year, putting them just four calls shy of last year’s total and over 2,000 more than the department answered in 1997.

So far that morning they responded to calls at 7:55, 8:57, 9:19, 9:55 and 10:40. By the late afternoon, they’d responded to two more calls for help.

“The old way of thinking, that we just sit here playing checkers and wait for the bell, is long gone,” Capt. Joe Burns said as he sat in his office catching up on morning reports. “We see a bunch of different stuff here.”

Mondays mean that Engine 5 is due for a top to bottom maintenance check, which Firefighter Jerry McKay — working overtime to cover a short-staffed shift — is leading just outside Capt. Burns’ door. He starts by washing the apparatus, which has just returned from its fifth medical call on a snowy morning, before checking its interior and lifting the cabin to do a complete check of the parts that make it run.

Those checks will be repeated for every other front-line apparatus on a daily rotation, since the department can’t afford surprises when emergencies arise.

Fire Chief Mark Klose and his staff are hoping that the city’s elected officials will capitalize on an invitation to join the department for a ride-along, which will give them an in-depth and hands-on understanding of the work Rochester’s firefighters do every day.

“We don’t sit in a cubicle, and we never know what we’re going to see every day,” said Chief Klose, who took the reins of the Rochester Fire Department this past summer after nearly three decades working in Bedford. “It’s important for people to know that just because the doors are closed doesn’t mean we aren’t busy.”

Though the job has changed dramatically, with calls for medical assistance and general aid now far outpacing the number of fires they’re summoned to extinguish, Rochester’s firefighters still say they’re working their dream job.

“Someone’s bad day is our good day because when there’s nobody else to call, they call us,” said Firefighter Pat Couch, the shift’s most senior firefighter.

“I’ve wanted to do this since I was a kid, and if I had to do it all over again, I would,” Capt. Burns said. “I wouldn’t change a thing. This job has been everything I hoped it would be and wanted it to be.”

By 1 p.m., all of the members on shift, including those assigned to the Gonic station, arrived at station one for a scheduled training on ice rescues. Deputy Chief Dennis Dube was interrupted early on in his lesson by the tones that signal a need for help. The call, a report of an odor of fire in a building that houses apartments and an abandoned barber shop, is known to firefighters simply as “smells and bells.”

Within minutes, the department’s second-floor training room and the entire shift had moved into two engines and a ladder truck, which rolled to a stop in front of the scene of the call a short distance from station one.

The crew was on scene for approximately an hour, working to determine the source of the odor while navigating narrow hallways blocked by mattresses and other obstructions. Firefighters narrowed the source of the odor to a furnace in a rear portion of the former barbershop and shut it off.

As they worked around the building, Chief Klose pointed out the variety of responsibilities firefighters have as they arrive at a scene, including determining whether there is an active fire and — if there is — what neighboring buildings are at risk and what needs to be done to keep fire from spreading.

Once that work was done, Fire Marshal and Deputy Chief Tim Wilder walked through the building with Jim Grant, Rochester’s director of building, zoning and licensing services, to determine what code enforcement issues exist within the building and begin working with the owner to correct them.

“For a department this size covering a city of this size,” Captain Burns said, “I would put us up against anybody.”

After clearing the scene, the shift members returned to the station and to their scheduled training session. Deputy Chief Dube, whose office floor is full of training-related materials, finished his walkthrough of the techniques they’d need for the exercise they’d be completing later in the week.

Then, the group moved to the apparatus bay to begin practicing with the equipment they’d need for an ice rescue. Firefighter Duane Marsh, working only his third shift since joining the department, got the ice rescue suit on just in time to hurriedly remove it and head for Engine 5 to respond to another call — a medical emergency at a home they’d been dispatched to earlier that morning.

Though no two days are identical for Rochester’s firefighters, Monday, Dec. 18 was fairly typical for the department, and they hope that city leaders will set aside time to experience a day in their lives to more fully grasp the challenges and responsibilities.

The responsibilities, the unexpected calls, their camaraderie and their shared impact on the community are ultimately part of what keeps Rochester firefighters coming back for more, even after harder days.

“I still love coming to work. I’ve got a great bunch of guys working for me who know what I expect from them and know how to do the job the right way,” said Captain Burns, a 30-year veteran. “Not everybody can come in and do this, with all of the stuff we see day in and day out.”

ROCHESTER — Chief Mark Klose is pleased to announce that the Rochester Fire Department has launched a new effort to recognize its members for their longevity with the department. 

The first set of honors was delivered on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the department’s holiday potluck dinner, with firefighters and officers earning longevity pins for their Class A uniforms, as well as certificates or plaques depending on how long they’ve worked in Rochester. 

“This is something that we’re instituting because it promotes professionalism and serves as a reward for the sacrifices our firefighters make on behalf of the people of Rochester,” Chief Klose said. “The firefighters expressed an appreciation for the recognition, and I think it’s important to create opportunities to honor them for the courage, commitment and character that they show each and every day.” 

From now on, firefighters will earn a new level of recognition at 10 year milestones. Firefighters will earn a pin with a silver star for every 10 years they’ve served, while officers will earn a pin bearing one gold star for every 10 years of service to Rochester. 

10 Year Honorees

  • Captain Eric Lenzi
  • Lt. Mike George
  • Steve Plante
  • Lt. Nick Marique
  • Beth Blake
  • Jason Laferte
  • Bruce Snyder
  • Micah Ruel
  • Darryl Jeffers

20 Year Honorees

  • Assistant Chief Mark Dupuis
  • Captain Mark Avery
  • Ken Chick
  • Missy Ayers
  • Brian Snyder
  • Jeff Comeau
  • Jim Jacques
  • Pat Couch

30 Year Honorees

  • Captain Joe Burns
  • Ron Giles

40 Year Honorees

  • Ron Lachapelle (55 years of service)

In addition to their service pins, Snyder, Couch, Jacques, Comeau, Burns and Lachappelle were recognized with plaques commemorating their years of dedication to the department.

Rochester City Clerk Kelly Walters also attended last week’s potluck, where she oversaw the swearing-in of Firefighters Joe Riley and Kevin Banks, who recently returned from military deployments overseas, as well as newly-hired Firefighters Seth Wentworth, Josh Biron, Matt Woodbury, Duane Marsh and Curt Fitton.

ROCHESTER — Fire Chief Mark Klose is pleased to announce the Rochester Fire Department’s participation in the city’s End 68 Hours of Hunger Program.

The End 68 Hours of Hunger program, is a non-profit community organization that helps provide food to school children that may otherwise go without during their weekend break from school. Rochester’s program, assisted by City Manager Dan Fitzpatrick and sponsored by the Rochester Rotary Club, provides children with meal bags that include two breakfasts, two lunches and three dinners.

End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive at school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive at school on Monday morning. This weekend program, established in New Hampshire in 2011, puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend.

This is the second time that the Rochester Fire Department has helped the program by stuffing bags with assorted food, such as cereal, crackers, vegetables, peanut butter and oatmeal.

“We’re grateful that we can help out this cause that supports so many children in our community,” Chief Klose said. “We thank City Manager Fitzpatrick and the Rotary Club for leading this initiative and we look forward to volunteering in the future.”

When the program’s volunteer numbers were low, City Manager Fitzpatrick asked Chief Klose if on-duty firefighters would be willing to help. On each occasion, the on-duty shift, which has happened to be the D Shift both times, has volunteered. Most recently, Lt. Mike George and firefighters Jason Laferte and Matt Parker helped stuff 125 bags in about 30 minutes. The department’s prior participation in the program was led by Lt. George, firefighter Micah Ruel and firefighter Josh Biron.

End 68 Hours of Hunger is entirely volunteer based and contributes 100 percent of its funds to feeding at-risk children. For more information on the program and how to get involved, visit their website at http://www.end68hoursofhunger.org/.
