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 75 members are on a paid on call status.
On Tuesday night, our Recruit Instructors and some loyal helpers put on an awesome Wildfire class for our new Firefighters. Normally, the recruit training wildfire class is held as a classroom setting, but in recent years it has been a bigger hit to load up all our recruits on four Brush Breakers and travel the woods. Breakers 26, 27, 28 and 29 participated in the exercise, as a rolling wildfire class took place in the rear of each breaker. Our new Firefighters got a chance to not only listen to the instructors in the back of each Breaker describe proper driving techniques, fuel loads, nozzle patterns and operational procedures, but they got a chance to see and experience it first hand.(Photo's by Firefighter Mike Terrill)
Our new Recruit Firefighters were put through the paces on Saturday, testing all the skills they have learned thus far. Instructors tested them on Search and Rescue Techniques, Pumps Operation, Fire Control, Weekly SCBA Checks, Maze Scenarios and Self Rescue. Overall, we are very, very proud of how our new Firefighters are doing. They are all meshing very well together and it looks like they will be a perfect fit to our TEAM.
