Vehicle Hybrid training comes to Carver Fire! Thanks to the efforts of Deputy Germaine and Firefighter Dave Bellando, a hands on vehicle hybrid training class was conducted for our Firefighters. Firefighter Bellando is the Service Manager for a local Toyota dealership and organized to have four Toyota Hybrid vehicles, a contingent of his mechanical staff and an expert instructor visit our Department for an evening class. The training lasted a little under two hours, was right to the point, taught in a way that we can relate too and gave us the needed information to deal with newer electric vehicles.

Fire Company's 1, 2 and 3 were dispatched to a reported porch fire with extension to the basement of a home off of Jason Drive in South Carver. First on scene, Captain Sears, reported a smoldering fire under the entrance porch with possible extension to the basement. Crews from Engine 3 and Engine 1 overhauled and contained the fire to a portion of the porch and the sill plate of the home. Tanker 1 and Rescue 1 were brought into the scene for manpower and support. Thank goodness the homeowner was home or this certainly could have extended throughout the house.
