In anticipation of winter storms and sub-zero temperatures, the New Hampshire Department of Safety declared an emergency. The emergency declaration waives hours-of-service requirements for those providing assistance to the state of New Hampshire. The waiver is in effect for the duration of the emergency, or until midnight December 31, 2018.
Drivers operating under the Emergency Declaration must have a copy of the declaration in the vehicle. Guidance on emergency declarations and waivers by the National Association of State Energy Officials is available here.
