Fire Company’s 1, 2 and 3 were dispatched to a reported permit fire that had extended to a rear deck and house. Before the arrival of the engine Company’s, Firefighters that lived nearby assisted the homeowner with pressurized water extinguishers, making a quick knock down of the fire and saving the structure. There was only minimal damage to both the home and deck. (Photo’s by Retired Firefighter, Steve Blanchard)
Our Recruit Trainers go above and beyond in teaching our newest Firefighters proper fire pump and Fire Hoses and Stream operations. Firefighters got a chance to operate our new front line Engines, a Brush Breaker and a Tanker, pumping and practicing hose techniques in realistic operational scenarios. Learning how to draft water out of our portable pools is a must when you become a firefighter in Carver. Firefighters also 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. Our Training Facility with onsite pressurized hydrants and great lighting helped take everything to the next level. Great Job TEAM! (Photo's by Firefighter, Steve Falconer)
