New Hampshire State Firemen’s Association

The New Hampshire State Firemen's Association was founded August 17, 1898. The first meeting was held in Manchester, NH. The purpose was to assist firefighters and their families with financial funds when a member of the Association was injured or killed in the line of duty.

Since its inception, the Association has been able to assist families to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads while a firefighter recovers from their injuries.

New Hampshire State Firemen's Association has always had a concern about education and legal rights of firefighters in the State. Sponsoring the annual convention each September allows firefighters to attend educational sessions and visit with vendors and to have hands on with new industry technology. Members also have the opportunity to hear from members who are on state committees that address the fire service in NH. The annual convention is also a great social event for many firefighters to visit with each other and attend the annual fireman's ball.

Welcome to the New Hampshire State Firemen's new web site. Please excuse us while we work to make the web site more user friendly and provide you with a value added member experience. Our goal is to provide you with information to assist you in information going on in the association and in the state. Please check out the information about the upcoming convention, the firefighter memorial and benefits for you to belong to the NHSFA. We appreciate your patience while we update this web site.

Thank you,

The NHSFA Executive Board
