Career Fireghter Becomes Hudson’s Deputy Chief
by Len Lathrop
How many of us can say that we have done the same job for our whole adult life? Hudson’s recently promoted deputy chief can say that. Meet Scott Tice. Many will know him, as he has been a ﬁre captain for the town for the past 11 years. Tice’s professional ﬁre service career began when he joined the Navy, where he was trained in crash/rescue and spent most of his four years of service at the Naval Air Station in Adak, Alaska.Returning to his hometown of Meredith, New Hampshire, he was a call ﬁreﬁghter until he joined the Hudson force as a ﬁreﬁghter/EMT in December 1996. In 1999 he went to Derry Fire and Rescue only to return to HFD in 2003 as a duty captain. Now, more than a decade later, he has assumed a deputy chief’s role under Hudson Fire Chief Robert Buxton.Tice explained it is an exciting time for Hudson Fire as plans are complete and the Robinson Road Fire Station will be operated on a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week schedule on August 3. Tice sees this as a step that will reduce the time to get to the scene in the north end of Hudson. He recalled how the response time improved when the Burns Hill Station opened in the south end and believes Robinson Road 24/7 operation will do the same for north Hudson. With the station opening, the stafﬁng patterns and equipment locations will change. Currently there are six ﬁreﬁghter and two duty ofﬁcers on each group; with the station going to 24/7, seven ﬁreﬁghters and two duty ofﬁcers will then be on duty at all hours.In his new role, he will essentially be responsible for three major components of the force’s Emergency Medical Services, Communication (Dispatch) and Department Training. Tice will be working a ﬁve-day-a -week schedule with weekends off which is a change from what duty captains do as they are on duty for a 24-hour shift from 8 a.m. to 8 a.m. then off for 24 hours and another 8 to 8 shift and then off for four shifts. He agreed that it will be an adjustment, but with two sons ages 13 and 14, he believes he it will be positive for his family.Meanwhile, this fall Hudson Fire is also changing apparatus with the greatly anticipated arrival of a “squad truck.” This smaller and less expensive truck will be used to save wear and tear on the main line engines, which each have a purchase price about four times greater than the squad vehicle. This equipped truck can handle service calls and other operations where the large engines are not required. Deputy Tice explained that the chief and the captains are working on how this truck will function in the department.When asked the “if you had a magic wand, what would you change” question, Deputy Tice spoke about the impression that the public has of ﬁreﬁghters. He wants readers to know that they are professionals with families of their own who are ﬁercely dedicated to protecting life and property and doing everything possible to keep the community safe. They don’t sit around the station waiting for something to happen; instead, they train and prepare and continuously check vehicles and equipment to ensure they are ready. It is important to them to do the best possible job they can, and they take that mission very personally.Outside of the ﬁre department, Scott is very involved with his two sons. Both play youth football with the Hudson Bears for which Scott has served as a coach as well as league president in 2013. Tice loves the outdoors and enjoys snowmobiling and skiing when he can. And with a smile, he mentioned that he has a Harley.Deputy Tice can be reached at 886-6021 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
