I want to express my sincerest appreciation for the endless hours of service that our Firefighting TEAM dedicated to the Town of Carver during the recent snow blizzard! I want you to know how proud I am of you!
With our Firefighters unselfish efforts, roadways were kept open for emergency vehicles, ambulances were escorted to and from hospitals transporting patients, fires were extinguished, people were comforted and lives were saved!
As a TEAM, Carver Fire responded to over 70 separate fire incidents, including 3 structure fires, 3 mutual aid Engine and Tanker requests, 12 assist the ambulance calls, transports of people to the emergency shelter, numerous trees on homes, wires down calls, electrical fires, chimney fires and many calls for help to keep roadways open.
As a TEAM, over 60 Carver Firefighters answered the calls for help from our residents. Firefighters were distributed throughout the Town, operating snow plows, assisting at the High School shelter, working at Carver EMS, staffing our Public Safety and Fire Dispatch Centers and fighting fires. We did it all!
Our Department utilized 14 pieces of fire apparatus, making sure that not one call for help went unanswered. Thankfully, not one our Firefighters reported any injuries while facing adverse conditions on every call they responded to.
