On Monday, the Register-Star reported on a firefighters' training exercise that took place on Sunday morning: "FAST firefighter teams train in Hudson on Sunday." FAST stands for Firefighter Assist and Search Team. About thirty firefighters from Hudson, Greenport, Claverack, Stuyvesant, and Niverville participated in the training, which took place in what the article described as "a vacant home at 69 N. 7th Street in Hudson."
The house, now vacant, is one of three houses slated for demolition to make way for the 54-unit apartment building the Galvan Foundation is planning to construct there.
In July 2019, Dan Kent, vice president of initiatives for the Galvan Foundation, reported that work on the house would soon be completed. In November 2020, when the picture below was taken, the renovation was complete, and the house was occupied.
