Your Gateway to Recovery in Nashua
If you are looking for help, there is a Gateway to Recovery in Nashua. Safe Stations are open 24/7 to those who are seeking treatment and recovery. At Safe Stations a trained firefighter will be able to connect you to help.
The City of Nashua Safe Stations are located at all Nashua Fire Stations. Or you can call: 603‐594‐3636
Call The NH State Wide Crisis Hotline: 1-844-711-HELP
Each Nashua, NH Fire Station will be a designated safe environment for the individuals seeking assistance looking for treatment to start their path to recovery. At any time of day or night a person seeking help with substance misuse can go to any NFD Station and speak to the Firefighters on duty. The Firefighters will arrange for or provide a medical assessment and if there is cause for concern that there is something else medically wrong with the patient, transportation to an appropriate level medical facility will be arranged for and provided by Nashua’s contracted 911 service AMR.
As most City hospital Emergency Rooms may be overwhelmed with patients, this program assists all by weeding out those individuals seeking assistance that may not need immediate medical attention, but need immediate help. To be able to establish and vette a program of this nature that could be implemented will be a benefit to not only the departments involved but the State as a whole for involving Fire and EMS in the care of those beyond just responding to an overdose. Many times a person knows they need treatment but does not know where to turn for help.
Safe Station is your connection to recovery. When you’re ready, we are there to help.
