Just a little about us.

The City of Hudson Department of Fire is the oldest active volunteer fire department in New York State. Organized in 1794 with the chartering of J. W. Edmonds Hose Company #1; our department has provided uninterrupted protection to the residents and visitors of our fine city ever since.

Besides fire protection, our department specializes in Auto Extrication and operates a full-service Water Operations Team. Our Dive Team responds year-round to warm, cold, and ice water incidents. Our Marine Unit covers the Hudson River and is part of the U.S. Coast Guard Hudson River Task Force.

You can determine your own level of participation. Duties ranging from Interior Firefighting, Exterior Firefighting Support, Rescue Diving, maintaining equipment, or directing traffic at incident scenes are just a few of your options.
