HUDSON, NH - On March 20, 2021 Hudson firefighters arrived to Central Street for a hands-on training at an abandoned house.

The multi-unit house at 194 Central Street was previously damaged in a fire in April 2019.

The property owner has authorized the department to utilize the structure to conduct training.

The firefighters and officers worked on different skills to include: advancing hose lines, search & rescue, rapid intervention training and limited visibility.

Several room fires were ignited giving firefighters the opportunity to enter the room filled with smoke and fire. The hands-on experience prepares firefighters to be ready to save lives of people requiring rescue, and how to quickly and safely extinguish the fire.

After several hours of training the entire building was allowed to burn giving firefighters experience with the intense heat from the fire, and using defensive techniques to control the fire.
