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 Selectwomen Sarah Hewins, Town Administrator Rick LaFond, 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 2021. (Photo's by Retired Firefighter, Rick Leopaordi)
Company 2 Firefighters work an MVA Entrapment Drill this past Sunday. Two vehicles were filled with training manikins and crushed down to simulate a serious MVA incident. Crews had to utilize different types of Jaws of Life tools, saw's and various extrication tools to quickly and safely remove the trapped occupants. Each Fire Company will be doing an MVA Entrapment drill during the month of May. (Photo's by Retired Firefighter, Steve Blanchard)
