The Hudson Department of Fire's 164th Annual Inspection & Parade will be held this weekend on Friday September 27th and Saturday September 28th. This event has been held every year since the first parade was first held on October 10th, 1856. This year the 225th anniversary of New York State's oldest active volunteer fire companies, J. W. Edmonds Hose Company No. 1 and H. W. Rogers Hose Company No. 2, will be celebrated.
The Inspection of the apparatus and firefighting equipment of Hudson's all volunteer fire department will begin at 6PM on Friday September 27th at the J. W. Hoysradt Hose Company, No. 8 firehouse at 515 Warren Street. The inspection will be done by City of Hudson officials and the Department of Fire's three Chiefs. Following the inspection of the engine and equipment at the Hoysradt Hose, the city officials and chiefs will proceed to the Hudson Central Station at 77 North 7th Street to inspect the engine, rescue engine, tower ladder, water rescue and other apparatus assigned there.
Following the inspection, a memorial service will be held at 7:30PM at the Central Station to honor Hudson firefighters who have passed since last year’s Inspection & Parade.
The public is invited to attend both the inspection and the memorial service.
