Safety Launches “Safe for the Season” Media Campaign with Tips to Protect Residents and Visitors During the Holidays

CONCORD, New Hampshire – The New Hampshire Department of Safety this week is releasing multiple public service announcements (PSAs) aimed at raising awareness and promoting good decision-making by offering residents and visitors a variety of winter- and holiday-specific safety tips.

The PSAs, which each feature one of the Department’s seven divisions, are intended to air across a variety of media platforms over the next week, including local broadcast and cable access television stations, radio stations and online news organizations. They have been posted on YouTube for media outlets and members of the public to download. They are also being released daily on the Department’s social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, where other agencies, nonprofits and private businesses can amplify and share them.

  • The Department developed a total of seven videos that include content addressing:
  • Coping with holiday stress and finding mental health resources;
  • What information to know while calling or texting 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency;
  • Heating and cooking fire dangers, including the improper use of portable heaters;
  • How to quickly provide help and/or first aid in the event of a medical crisis;
  • Monitoring weather conditions and being aware of surroundings, particularly in large-crowd environments;
  • Alternatively utilizing online services and driving safely during inclement weather;
  • And planning a safe ride home by choosing a designated driver.

“These videos communicate some of the Department’s highest priorities and recognize many of the ongoing public safety concerns that are at the core of our seven divisions’ missions,” said Department of Safety Assistant Commissioner Eddie Edwards. “Our vision at Safety is to make New Hampshire the safest state in the Nation with the highest quality of life for all. While these videos are short in duration, they have the potential to protect our friends and neighbors -- and perhaps will even save lives.”

Anyone who has difficulty downloading the videos should contact the Department’s Strategic Communications Administrator and Public Information Officer, Tyler Dumont, via email at
