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.
This week our new Firefighters where given a great course on Rapid Intervention by our Recruit Trainers. Each firefighter got a chance to practice working as a coordinated TEAM, searching with ropes, learning how to use their buddy breathing equipment and practice realistic self rescue techniques that may need to be used in the event a firefighter becomes trapped or disoriented. Once again our new maze building was utilized and assisted these new firefighters in building confidence in their freshly learned skills. (Photo's by Firefighter Steve Falconer)
This week our new Fire Recruits were taught Fire Hoses and Fire streams. Firefighters practiced hose packing and deploying techniques, selecting correct nozzles streams and flow pressures, hose rolls and other techniques our new firefighters will need when working fire incidents.
