Campton Police Department

Members of the Campton-Thornton Fire Department, Campton Police, Thornton Police, as well as several area Police and Fire/EMS agencies participated in an EMS in the Warm Zone (active shooter) training, this morning at the Campton Elementary School.

Students learned important skills such as using tourniquets, packing and dressing wounds and extracting patients during active shooter situations.

This was a grant funded course, presented by the NH Fire Academy/ EMS and was funded by NH Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Several area towns were awarded $6000 each for ballistic gear and other EMS equipment.

Approximately 10 volunteers, including members of Boy Scouts of America Pack 58, played victims, to add a sense of reality to the course.

A total of 36 students participated in the course from the following agencies:

Campton-Thornton Fire Rescue
Campton Police Department
Thornton Police Department
Plymouth Fire Department
Ashland Fire Department
Ashland Police Department
Lin-Wood Ambulance
Franconia Life Squad
Rumney EMS
Littleton Fire Department
Grafton County Sheriff's Office

This is reportedly the largest class to date.

Thank you to all the participants, instructors, volunteer actors/actresses and the Campton School, for use of their facility. Thank you to Campton-Thornton Firemen's Association for the donation of coffee and breakfast items.

Campton Police Officers Growing Beards in Support of local Child Advocacy Centers

New Hampshire’s Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) support child victims of physical and sexual abuse, as well those children who have witnessed violent crimes. CACs support these children in the early stages of criminal investigations by offering forensic interview services and by connecting them to important community resources.

To bring awareness to the cause a number of Grafton and Sullivan County Police Chiefs have authorized their officers who have pledged support to our local Child Advocacy Center to grow beards, mustaches or goatees; or nails (for female officers) during the month of October. Campton PD is proud of the great work of the Grafton and Sullivan County Child Advocacy Centers and want to thank YOU for supporting them in their efforts!

Please click the link below to make your donation to the Grafton & Sullivan County CAC
