TFMoran current Municipal Projects featured at the 78th NH Municipal Expo

TFMoran participated in the 78th Annual New Hampshire Municipal Conference and Expo on November 1314, 2019 at The DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Manchester.  The New Hampshire Municipal Conference and Expo is the largest yearly gathering of officials from New Hampshire local governments. Over 500 municipal officials and over 100 exhibitors and sponsors attended the conference. TFMoran’s booth display featured current structural engineering projects such as the additions and renovations to the Tuftonboro Free Library, the Exeter Public Library, and the Newmarket Schools, and the newly completed Warner Fire Station.  Other municipal projects displayed were a Feasibility Study for a Technical School for the Town of Derry, City of Manchester Municipal Complex, Town of Amherst Road Reconstruction Engineering, Bedford Village Common and the Milton Fire-Rescue Station.

The two-day conference hosted by the New Hampshire Municipal Association offered many informative sessions, from economic development to the Right-to-Know Law, conflicts of interest to human resources, that are all designed with municipal officials in mind. The theme of this year’s Conference was “Working Better Together.” The keynote speaker was Jim Hunt, former Mayor, Council Member and Past President of the National League of Cities. Mr. Hunt speaks and consults throughout the world and meets with thousands of local government officials. He is the author of The Amazing 7-Steps to Creating an Amazing City used as a guide by thousands of city officials to help them create positive changes in their communities.

TFMoran was delighted to attend the Annual Conference again this year, as our engineers always look forward to seeing familiar faces and discussing ongoing, future and past municipal projects. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success!

Congratulations to Kimberly Reed from the Town of Rye! Her business card was drawn at the TFMoran booth raffle for a gift card to the Bedford Village Inn.

Thanks to NH Bureau of EMS, Bill Wood for the AED demonstration

TFMoran recently installed an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)* in our Bedford office. The AED life-saving medical device was purchased through the State of New Hampshire’s “AED Direct Purchase Opportunity”. On May 14th Bill Wood, Preparedness Coordinator for the NH Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, demonstrated to the staff how the device works, explained what to expect and answer any questions. Thank you Bill for taking the time to give us such a thorough explanation and demonstration!

Any New Hampshire business, organization or individual can purchase an AED through this state program. For more detailed information, click on this pdf link State of NH AED Information

* According to the American Heart Association , “An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. If not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death.”
