The Carver Fire Dive Team was formed in 1988 under the direction of Retired Chief Dana Harriman. Currently, the our Dive Team consists of 9 Divers and 9 Support personnel led by Divemaster Josh McDermott and Assistant Divemaster Tom Fitzgerald. All Carver Fire Divers are certified to the Advanced Diver level and above. Our Dive Team drills, at minimum, of once per month with all drills incorporating real life scenarios and practical evolutions. Most recently the 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 2 complete Dive setups plus an abundance of miscellaneous dive gear and advanced underwater equipment and tows are newly rehabbed rescue Hovercraft. This equipment includes 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 that were recently purchased through a donation. 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.
