BETHLEHEM, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s new fire academy is expected to increase levels of training for North Country firefighters while reducing costs.

The Raymond S. Burton North Country Fire and EMS Training Facility in Bethlehem is being dedicated Friday. Gov. Maggie Hassan is participating.

The academy is the second one in New Hampshire; the other is in Concord. The new facility will cut down on travel time for training.

In 2012, the New Hampshire Legislature passed a bill that authorized a $550,000 appropriation to establish a fire training facility in the North Country.
