Don't Panic Portsmouth, NH - It's Only A Drill



If you are downtown Portsmouth, NH tomorrow - Friday July 24th 2015, you may encounter sounds that would alarm an otherwise unknowing citizen.

This is is JUST A DRILL 

and nothing to be worried about.  

The following was posted in the Portsmouth Herald Newspaper and/or  with regard to tomorrow's training exercises. 

By Press Release
On Friday, July 24th, 2015, the region’s first responders will participate in a large-scale regional training exercise designed to test the critical skills and protocols that would be used responding to a high-level critical incident. SWAT, Fire, EMS, and municipal police will have the opportunity to respond and train.
The Department of Homeland Security has gone to great lengths to design an event that incorporates almost all the necessary personnel and equipment needed to secure a successful outcome for such an incident. This means people in some Portsmouth neighborhoods and downtown areas will hear loud noises during the course of the exercise. The areas specifically affected will be the in-town neighborhoods around the high school and the middle school. These residents will also be receiving a Reverse 911 call reminder on Thursday, the 21st.
The noises and activity connected to the training are no cause for alarm. They are part of the training. Additionally, people will see uniformed officers with training weapons, and emergency response vehicles and equipment, which are also part of the exercise. Please do not call “911” or Portsmouth Dispatch in response to the training. 

The event is a scheduled and controlled training incident and is planned to run from about 9:00 a.m. until about 2:00 p.m. The Portsmouth Public Library will be open during the training period; no fines will be assessed for the day. The Portsmouth Pool will also be open.
The “Praetorian 724” exercise will afford the region’s first responders a unique opportunity to train to be able to best protect the residents of the Seacoast.

Maine Open Farm Day July 26th

Maine Open Farm Day -Sunday, July 26th 

A Maine tradition, farms will open their gates to the public this Sunday July 26th

Open Farm Day is an annual family event that connects consumers with the men and women who help produce their food. Farms throughout Maine will open their gates to offer the public an opportunity to learn about the business of agriculture. Many farms will have demonstrations, displays, farm-raised products for sale and animals and crops to experience. 

All across the State of Maine, close to 100 family farms will open their doors to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Held each year, Open Farm Day is an opportunity for consumers to learn about Maine food producers and for farms to show the public their products.

From Governor Paul La Page "On behalf of Maine citizens, I thank our farmers and producers for their work bringing fresh and natural products to our tables every day," said Governor Paul R. LePage. "This is an exciting time for Maine-made products and Maine agriculture. The number of Maine farms is on the rise and so is the market value of our agricultural products. Since the last Census of Agriculture, the market value of Maine's agricultural products has increased 24%. At a time when the number of farms in the United States is declining, the number of Maine farms has increased to 8,174, up from 7,196 in 2002. This growth coincides with renewed consumer interest in locally grown foods." Read More
