Police & Fire
I would like to inform all town residents that I have started posting weekly activities on our web page. I invite everyone to visit our web site at www.Troy-NH.us.
This month we would like to talk about winter safety. We are solidly in the season of blizzards, slippery roads and black ice. The road crews do a good job of cleaning up after the storms, but if you don’t have to be out during or just after a storm, stay home and let the crews do their job. Also, remember to clean ALL snow off of your vehicle. We all have seen those folks driving around with a foot of snow on their roofs. If it’s fluffy snow, it turns into a whiteout behind the car. If it’s heavy snow or ice, it can fly off and hit another car causing an accident.
We would like to thank everyone for their support of the Troy Ambulance. The Troy Ambulance is made up of volunteers who are dedicated to responding to emergencies in Troy and surrounding communities. Our EMT’s are National Registered and licensed by the State of NH.
MCAFD still has some cookbooks left. "Cookin' with Fire" contains some of the favorite recipes from our members and a few funny tidbits. If you haven't received your cookbook yet; please contact a Meadowood member.

Do you have some unwanted items that you would like to sell at a yard sale, but you really don’t have a yard to set up in? The Meadowood Training center has some space for you. MCAFD will be having a giant tag sale at the Training Center on Bowkerville Rd in Fitzwilliam from 8 AM – 2 PM on June 18. For $10 a table, you can de-clutter your closet, attic or basement and help the Meadowood County Area Fire Department. If you are interested in setting up a table or two, please contact 603-313-3459 for more details.
The Troy Fire Department Association will be having the annual flower sale to raise money to help purchase needed equipment . The department is not able to purchase this equipment due to budget cuts. The flower sale will be held on May 7 & 8 and May 21 & 22 rain or shine from 10 AM thru 4 PM.
Spring has begun, the snow has melted away and that means if you want to burn by state law you must have a burning permit. A permit is required to burn in an outside fireplace, and a permit is still required even while raining. If you are not the land owner you must have written permission from the land owner. Regulation prohibits kindling of open fires between 9 AM and 5 PM except while raining. If you would like to acquire a burning permit you may telephone: Mark Huntoon 1-603-499-2051, Robert Hebert 1-603-242-3712, Robert Crowell 1-603-352-3853
