About The Department

Sugar Hill is located in northern New Hampshire, in Grafton County. During the late 19th century Sugar Hill was a fashionable Victorian resort area with many grand hotels. In 1929 the first resort based ski school in the U. S. was opened in Sugar Hill. Today, the town is still a destination point for the many visitors that come to northern New Hampshire. Sugar Hill is a relatively small town approx. 17.2 square miles of land of a predominately rural character. As of the census of 2009 there were 613 people living in Sugar Hill.

Sugar Hill Fire & Rescue is a small but cohesive team of emergency responders consisting currently of 21 fire fighters. Our department is a member of the Twin State Mutual Aid Fire Association. We are dedicated to serve the Sugar Hill community and our neighboring towns 24 hours a day in an emergency.

Unlike larger communities and cities who have fire stations with regular staffed shifts, we are a “Call Fire Department”. Our fire fighters carry pagers, and we are dispatched to a scene of an emergency by the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department.

Our department strives to improve continuously through regular bi-monthly meeting and practice training sessions. Throughout the year we take any available opportunity to train and practice with fire departments in our surrounding towns. Many thanks to the Franconia, Easton, Bethlehem, Lisbon, and Littleton fire departments with whom we often train together and who also come to our aid when needed.
