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 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)
Our new Recruit Firefighters are nearing the end of their Recruit Training Program. This past week they demonstrated all their non-firefighters skills at the Training Facility. The group worked another MVA Entrapment scenario, practiced additional maze evolutions, performed another round of search and rescues, and finally some Ladders evolutions. Next up is a practical BurshBreaker drive, then on to their Live Fire Practical and then they will transition into Station Training for a 60 day period. (Photo's by Firefighter, Steve Falconer)
