The Carver Fire Department is located in Southeastern Massachusetts.
We proudly protect 11,368 people living in an area of 39.58 square miles. We operate out of three stations that protect a primarily residential/agricultural area. Our Department is a Public Department whose 80 members are on a paid on call status.
A little delayed, but we finally pulled off the Carver Fire Recruit Graduation of 2020 this past Sunday. What a great day it was for our five newest firefighters! Recruit Graduation is a day that we official bring our newest firefighters into the department. It is also a time were we reflect, remember we came from and welcome the enthusiasm that is entering our department. Family and friends attended to witness that special moment when titles change from Recruit to FIREFIGHTER! The ceremony included speeches by our Town Administrator Rick LaFond, Select Board Chairperson Sarah Hewins, Association President Bob Middendorf, Deputy Germaine, Assistant Deputy Boyle and Chief Weston. Official Department Badges and Graduation Certificates were presented. The ceremony was held in our apparatus bay to adhere to the COVID guidelines, followed by a fantastic video presentation, orchestrated by Deputy Germaine of complied photos and videos taken by our fire photographers. Please join me in welcoming our newest Carver Firefighters in the Class of 2020. (Photo's by Firefighter, Steve Falconer)
Fire Company’s 1, 2, 3 and the Dive Team were toned out for a MVA with a vehicle overturned into a body of water. First on scene personnel were reasonably confident that all occupants were out of the partially submerged vehicle, however Firefighters and the Dive Team were called into make a conformation. Crews wearing survival suits were able to use the Jaws Spreaders to open the doors, check for occupants and contain any leaking hazards. Emergency personnel remained on scene while the towing company up righted and removed the vehicle. The driver was treated by Carver EMS. (Photo’s by Retired Fire Chief, Bill Harriman)
