Recruit Training Class #27 – Live Fire / Graduation (Photo’s by Firefighter, Steve Falconer) - April 22, 2023

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 team of new firefighters responded as an Engine Company, utilizing Engines 1 and 4, to the Training Facility for multiple simulated structure fires.  Each recruit got a chance to operate the different positions of a structural entry team, practicing nozzle patterns and positive pressure ventilation.  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, 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 2023. (Photo’s by Firefighter, Steve Falconer)
