The Hudson Falls Fire Department has entered into service, a 1991 Mack/Saulsbury rescue truck.  The truck was purchased from the Undercliff Fire Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania were it served as a combination air/light/command special operations vehicle (SOV). 

After some obligatory customization by HFFD, the rig is now seeing duty with the department’s rescue company – were it will be running all types of incidents in the Village and beyond; from vehicle accidents, water emergencies to structural fire and FAST
(Firefighter Assistance and Safety Team) assignments.

In addition to being outfitted with the standard array of rescue tools and equipment, the truck also has a dedicated incident command center, a 4 cylinder - 5000psi cascade system, 2 telescopic light towers with a combined lighting capacity of 9000 watts and an amazing 45,000 watt on-board generator.


The members of the Hudson Falls Fire Department would like to thank the Mayor and Village Board for their unanimous support in reactivating the Fire Horn now that construction is complete on Village Hall.


The Hudson Falls Fire Department has received a grant of $73,530.00 from the 2003 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The award will be used to purchase new turnout gear and training equipment.
