Crews were faced with a double rollover involving multiple victims trapped, an industrial incident with a person trapped under a forklift, and a vehicle fire. All at once. The members arrived on scene of the simulated disaster and immediately formulated a plan and executed all necessary tasks. Once the “real time” portion of the exercise was completed, a more measured approach towards tool mastery was adopted, as firefighters took turns operating the Jaws Of Life and assorted equipment.

IMG_9148 Our new Recruits last training class was a good one – Live Fire Training.  Crews practiced live fires on the first and second floors of the training building.  Each new firefighter got a chance to operate the different positions of a structural entry team, practicing nozzle patterns and positive pressure ventilation.  Firefighters also practiced extinguishing vehicle and dumpster fires.  It was a long day, but a tremendous amount of experience was gained that will help these new Firefighters transition into a great CFD career.  After the morning practical, it was on to graduation….  Family and friends attended to witness that special moment when titles change from Recruit to FIREFIGHTER! The ceremony included speeches by Select Board Chairman Mark Townsend, Town Administrator Robert Fennessy, Association President Bob Middendorf, Deputy Germaine, Assistant Deputy Boyle and Chief Weston. Official Department Badges, Accountability ID’s and Graduation Certificates were presented.  This was a day to remember. Please join me in welcoming our newest Carver Firefighters in the Class of 2022. (Photo’s by Retired Firefighter, Steve Blanchard)
