Concord court office building evacuated for snow concerns
CONCORD - More than 2,000 calls are made to the Concord Superior Court Center each day, but with yet another evacuation over roof concerns, many of those calls were likely unsuccessful Thursday.
Carol Alfano, the Public Information Officer for the Judicial Branch told NH1 News the courts were forced to redirect calls and move operators to the Emergency Management Office.
The Concord Fire Department and City Code Inspectors evacuated the building Wednesday afternoon after noticing sagging around sprinkler heads in the building.
There were "in some places 12-14 inches of snow on the roof," said Concord Fire Chief Dan Andrus.
Crews were busy shoveling Thursday.
The building will be closed until it is deemed safe by engineers. No court proceedings were impacted by the closure.
In the meantime, calls are being answered on a limited basis. If you are unable to reach the toll free call center at 1-855-212-1234, questions can be answered directly through the courts.
