NORTH HAMPTON (AP) - North Hampton officials say the southeast New Hampshire town is interested in discussing the possible regionalizing of fire services with Rye and Portsmouth.

The North Hampton Select Board plans to send a letter to Rye requesting that the two select boards hold a joint meeting to gauge interest in regionalizing.

Residents aware of Rye's regionalization talks with Portsmouth led them to write to North Hampton selectmen asking for the town to join. Rye Selectman Craig Musselman says the Rye board would welcome North Hampton to the conversation.

Town Administrator Paul Apple says all public services are open for discussion, but sharing fire and emergency services has been the focus in all three communities.

North Hampton Fire Chief Michael Tully says regionalizing could save money and improve safety in the communities.
