E-Mail Chief Jack Anderson:


The Bethlehem Fire and Police Departments, in partnership with the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department, has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System – an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of the Grafton County Dispatch area in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing thousands of phone numbers per hour.It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.

It is important that all residents and businesses within the dispatch area subscribe to the system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency. Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential
within our system and not be used for any other purpose.


A burn permit is required for any outdoor fire in the town of Bethlehem.

Permits can be obtained at the Fire Department on weekdays during normal business hours (8am to 5pm) 

Or online at the NH Forest and Lands Website

If no one is available to issue the permit, contact Chief Anderson.
