A Message from the Hooksett Office of Emergency Management:
The Town of Hooksett is pleased to provide you with this Community Emergency Preparedness Guide. This website will help you develop an emergency plan, provide information on how to assemble an Emergency Supply Kit, and provide specific contact telephone numbers and web sites that can assist you during an emergency.

Emergencies can occur without warning, leaving little or no time for you and your family to plan. Although local emergency response personnel will respond to a scene after a disaster, they will not be able to reach everyone right away. Therefore, it is imperative that you learn about the things that you can do to be prepared before an emergency occurs.

Please take a moment and spend time to review this guide with your family. Discuss how each of you would handle these types of situations. It will be a quality time with your loved ones and could one day save your lives. The Town hopes that you will keep this guide nearby as a reference tool and utilize many of the suggestions found inside to prepare your family for any emergency situation. If you need further information throughout the year regarding emergency planning, please contact the Hooksett Office of Emergency Management: 603-268-0365.

This information was developed in conjunction with the Town of Hooksett Local Planning Team to provide you with the basic information needed to help you prepare for the next community emergency. It provides information that you need to become self-reliant during a disaster by helping you understand your risks, the systems that are already in place to keep you informed, and a section that helps you to create a personalized Family Emergency Action Plan.

Introduction to Emergency Management
Under the New Hampshire Emergency Management Act, the Town of Hooksett has established an emergency management program responsible for coordinating disaster mitigation, preparation, response and recovery. Several programs are currently underway in the Town of Hooksett to support this mission including projects that enhance Homeland Security, severe weather tracking and warning, and hazardous materials accident response capabilities...just to name a few.

The Town of Hooksett has adopted the National Incident Management System (“NIMS”) and participates in both the Emergency Management Performance Grant program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) and the Homeland Security Grant Program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”). Here are a few of the key components:

  • Emergency Action Guidelines have been established for each key discipline (Fire & HazMat, Public Health, Public Information, etc.) that describes the overall role and responsibility for each section of government during a crisis
  • An Emergency Operations Center has been established to coordinate disaster response activities including public information and resource management during any significant emergency
  • An Emergency Management Director, staff, and on-call Operations Officers from each key area of government have been appointed to coordinate Hooksett’s mitigation, preparedness,response, and recovery activities
