Sunapee Fire Assists Lake Sunapee Bank
The Sunapee Fire & EMS Department is a community service agency that not only responds to emergencies in Town and to assist neighboring departments, we also provide assistance to members of our community with specialized needs. When the flagpole rope at Lake Sunapee Bank broke, the facilities department did not have safe way to get to the top of the pole to thread a new rope through the pulley. A call was made to Chief Ruggles on August 2nd, 2017 for assistance with the project. The next day he sent Capt./EMT Steve Marshall and Lt. Corey Oxland to the bank with the ladder truck and the pole was re-roped quickly and safely and the flag is flying again.

Ramspott Awarded by the Sunapee Fire & EMS Department
At the Annual Sunapee Fire & EMS Department's Firemens Dinner on April 22, 2017 Betty Ramspott was awarded both the Outstanding Firefighter and Sunapee Outstanding Citizen Awards.
Betty has been Sunapee's Town Clerk & Tax Collector since March 1997. Betty has worked tirelessly to keep Sunapee at the front of the line when it comes to automobile and boat registrations.
Betty also works for the Fire Department Board of Engineers taking minutes of the meeting, filing run reports, paying the bills and handling background checks for new applicants.
Because of her dual capacity, this year the Selection Committee felt it appropriate to give one combined award to Betty Ramspott. Congratulations Betty!
Sunapee Fire Department Helps Local Resident Celebrate the Cubs World Series Win
At 108 years of age,Sunapee resident Hazel Nilson may be the only person in the country still alive when the Chiago Cubs won the World series in 1908. As a born and raised Chicagoan, she has been a Cubs fan since she can remember. She moved to Sunapee Cove 2 years ago to be closer to family and has remained loyal to her Cubbies, watching the entire Game 7 of the World Series to see her team win. WMUR- Channel 9 even came to town to interview her and has been kind enough to share their article with us.
Since she couldn't go to Chicago to see the victory parade, the Sunapee Fire Department offered to let her join us on November 6 as we lead the victory parade into town for the Sunapee High School Girls Soccer team when they won the NHIAA Division IV State Championship. Below, behind the smile, Hazel sits in Ladder 5 as the parade is ready to get underway!
