What an a great day on Saturday with the graduation of our Recruit Class of 2017. Our 10 newest Firefighters all made it through their final practical exam in the morning to graduation in the afternoon. Family and friends attended to witness that special moment when titles change from Recruit to FIREFIGHTER! The ceremony included speeches by Association President Middendorf, Deputy Germiane, Assistant Deputy Boyle and Chief Weston. Official Department Badges, Accountability ID’s and Graduation Certificates were presented with Town Clerk, Lynn Doyle swearing in each firefighter. This was the first Recruit Class to graduate utilizing our new Training Facility. This was a day to remember. Please join me in welcoming our newest Carver Firefighters in the Class of 2017.

Company’s 1 and 3 managed to have well throughout, but separate separate Water Supply drills at the our Training Facility without interfering with each other. Crews practiced water shuttles with Tanker 1 and Breakers, while flowing a substantial amount (15,000 gallons) of water using our new Fire Hydrant system. It is nice to have a large paved area and good water supply to practice in. Both Company’s put on very good drills! (Photo's by Assistant Deputy Chief, Jesse Boyle)
