Dive Team

The Carver Fire Dive Team was formed in 1988 under the direction of Retired Chief Dana Harriman. Currently, the our Dive Team consists of 13 Divers and 7 Support personnel led by Divemaster Austin White and Assistant Divemaster John O'Connell. All Carver Fire Divers are PADI Public Safety Diver certified and all our Support personel are PADI Surface Support certified. Our Dive Team drills, at minimum, of once per month with all drills incorporating real life scenarios and practical evolutions. Our entire Dive Team, donated their time and efforts to covert and restore a retired 2000 Carver EMS ambulance to function as our primary Dive Response vehicle, now called Rescue 2. Rescue 2 carries 3 complete Dive setups plus an abundance of miscellaneous dive gear and advanced underwater equipment. This equipment includes new public safety dry suits, handheld underwater sonar, Interspiro full face piece dive masks, a wireless underwater communication system (allowing each diver to communicate with each other and Command staff on the shoreline), an advanced boat mounted underwater side sonar system and night vision binoculars. I am very proud to say that our Dive Team is always at the ready to protect the residents of our community in the event of a water emergency.
