It is with great sadness that the Hudson Fire Department shares our most recent fallen brother Lieutenant Daniel Smith age 46 of Hudson died suddenly January 21st at Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Dan was a proud member of the Hudson Fire Department since 1989, with 7 of those years as an officer.  For the past 6 years Dan has shared his knowledge as an instructor for WITC, instructing area firefighters.  Dan touched many lives with his 20 years of dedicated service especially with the children that he saw every year as “Firefighter Dan” at the local preschool doing fire prevention education.  He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and fellow firefighters.

Remembering those who have gone before us. 17, 31 & 22
