The small Town of Hampton Falls is located along Routes 1 & 95 between Seabrook and Hampton. This is a mostly residential community known for numerous antique shops and the state's oldest and largest apple orchard, Applecrest Farm. It is also the home of John Sununu; Former New Hampshire Governor and Chief of Staff under President George H. W. Bush.
Fire & Rescue services are provided by volunteers operating out of a three-bay facility that is shared with the Police Department. The department operates with two engines, two tankers, one ambulance and a few support vehicles. In recent years a skeleton crew was added during the day to enable the first unit to get out the door faster.
