Southern New Hampshire Region Community Preparedness Program

-A A +A

The Southern New Hampshire Region Community Preparedness Program (SNHRCPP) is a regional effort by all of the municipalities in the Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission Region to increase citizen preparedness.

The Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission in partnership with the City of Manchester has developed the Southern New Hampshire Region Community Preparedness Program (SNHRCPP) in response to the overwhelming need for community preparedness in our region and in our State. Since 2005, New Hampshire has experienced a destructive series of events, including floods, a major tornado and the most serious ice storm in its history in December 2008. Most recently, New Hampshire experienced an intense windstorm from February 25-26, 2010, which brought down trees and limbs, knocked out power to over 270,000 residents and caused major flooding, rivaling the floods of Mother’s Day 2006. This storm was followed two weeks later by a nor’easter, which caused more flooding, with the hardest hit areas in the southern part of the State.
