Hudson Falls fire vehicles traveled down Main Street at noon Monday in a sendoff for one of their own — Dan Hess, who left for the U.S. Coast Guard. Hess, a 2020 graduate of Hudson Falls High School, has been a member of the volunteer fire department for about two years and is looking forward to the next chapter of his life. “It’s kind of been a lifelong dream for me. It all started when I was little. I kind of want to go into maritime law enforcement,” he said. Hess said he has been boating since he was little and his family has a boat on Glen Lake. “I love being on the water,” he said. Hess said he likes that the Coast Guard is involved in a lot of different activities including rescue missions, drug interdiction and fisheries and wildlife management.
