ICE RINK ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
For residents who are planning on, or already have, a skating rink in their
yard that needs to be filled with water, North Hampton Fire & Rescue is
offering to fill those rinks utilizing our tank truck filled with surface water
taken from local bodies of water.
Fire Chief Michael Tully is offering this public service to residents who
wish to have a rink for their family’s winter activities during a period in
which there is still a water ban in effect. This is a proactive approach
in which the department can also assist in the prevention of potentially
emptying wells during a winter freeze for those residents attempting to
fill their rinks using well water.
The water used by the department to fill rinks will then return to the
environment as surface water at the end of the season when the rinks
are dismantled. Working together, we protect our water, our environment,
our wells, and provide a safe alternative for our families and children to
enjoy the Winter months ahead.
