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 80 members are on a paid on call status.
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, our new Firefighters are all meshing very well together and it looks like they will be a good fit to our TEAM. (Photo’s by Retired Fire Chief, Bill Harriman)
Company’s 1, 2 and 3 responded to a reported Structure Fire off of Woodlawn Drive. First due C3, reported a Chimney Fire and the response was quickly downgraded. Crews checked for extension, laddered the roof, and cleared the chimney of a heavy creosol buildup. (Photo’s by Retired Firefighter, Mike Terrill)
