Pictured from left to right Firefighter Michael J. Harriman, Firefighter David A. Buker Jr., and Firefighter Mark W. Whittemore. On February 9th these three Carver Firefighters were recognized for the heroic efforts to save an elderly woman from a house fire. Despite being confronted by intense heat and heavy smoke these firefighters performed their rescue effort without waiting for first due engine companies, hoselines, breathing apparatus or in the case of Firefighter Harriman, protective clothing. For their swift and courageous actions Govenor Paul Celucci on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts presented them each with Medals of Valor.
