Thank you to Hanover Public Schools Superintendent Matt Ferron for recognizing the efforts of our members in supporting the safe reopening of schools in Hanover. We are excited to be part of such a collective approach toward responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency facing our community.

“None of this would be possible without the incredible effort of the Hanover Fire Department, VNA, Health Department, our school nursing staff, our administrative assistants, food services, HMS administration, and countless others who planned and executed an exceptional process. The collaboration, innovation, and commitment from the HFD in partnership with HPS Health Services Director, Tricia Smith, and our nurses should be a model for our state and our nation. Hanover is leading the way in our public health response to COVID-19, and we are very fortunate to have these exceptional professionals working to support us. We will continue to partner with HFD as the school year starts to evaluate and explore future testing options.”

08/08/2020

The Hanover Fire Department is pleased to announce that we have been awarded $106,908 through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) Program.

This Grant will allow for the purchase & installation of two power cots and lifting systems for our older two ambulances which ensures that equipment is standardized on all three of the Department’s transporting ambulances. The power load stretcher system supports the cot through the loading process. This improves the safety for both the patient and provider and reduces the risk of injury for firefighters who typically would have to manually lift and manipulate the stretcher.

New Federal and State guidelines require this equipment on ambulances. The addition of the power load stretcher system significantly increases the cost of new ambulances.

These items were included as part of the Town’s Capital Plan. This Grant Award allows us to remove a costly project off of that Plan.

The Department has successfully been awarded over two million dollars through federal, state and private grant programs over the previous five years. Funds awarded through these grants provide much needed resources to the organization, our members and the community while lessening the direct financial impact on taxpayers of the Town.

08/06/2020

Firefighters have answered over 60 calls for service in the last two days including this motor vehicle fire on Tuesday morning in West Hanover Square. This fire occurred at the same time crews were responding to a medical emergency in Town. The Department has seen a continued increase in multiple/simultaneous calls over the previous three years. Over that same time period, our reliance on mutual aid has declined. This is largely a result of enhanced staffing of on-duty shifts made possible by the SAFER Grant. Without these staffing levels, our ability to respond effectively and safely to multiple incidents such as what occurred on Tuesday morning would not be possible.

Hanover is part of the tropical storm warning from Tropical Storm Isaias. High winds have the potential to bring down trees and branches onto power lines. As a reminder:

-For downed utility lines: ALWAYS assume that downed utility lines are live, do not approach or touch them! Remain a safe distance away and call 911 for assistance.
-For power outages: Do not call 911 to report a power outage. Contact National Grid at 1-800-465-1212 or go to www.nationalgridus.com.
-If the power does go out, always operate portable generators in a safe manner. Always keep generators outside and away from any doors, windows or vents. Also, ensure that you have working carbon monoxide detectors in your home. Carbon Monoxide is colorless, odorless and deadly.

Stay safe!

On July 8, 2020, at 2:07 am, the Hanover Fire Department received a call reporting smoke in the area of Columbia Road and Rockland Street with a possible outside fire in the rear of a commercial occupancy. Engine 7, Tower 1 and Ambulance 3 responded to investigate. While enroute, Hanover Police Officers arrived and reported a possible outside equipment fire at 183 Columbia Road with smoke in the building. Box 42 was transmitted and a full 1st Alarm Assignment was dispatched. First arriving crews found thick black smoke coming from the front of an 85 x 50 two story commercial office building with heavy fire conditions in the rear. Firefighters were unable to make an interior attack and were forced to initiate a defensive and exterior operation as heavy fire rapidly traveled throughout the structure.

Three Alarms were necessary to bring the fire under control. Mutual Aid assistance from Rockland, Norwell, Pembroke, Hanson, Hingham, Abington, Whitman, Marshfield, Duxbury and South Shore Hospital EMS responded to the incident scene. Support units from the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services and the Providence Canteen also responded to the incident. The Hanover Police and Public Works Departments also assisted on scene. The Hanover Emergency Communications Center coordinated incident communications and requests for mutual aid.

Officials from the Hanover Building Department determined that the remaining structure was unsafe and had to be taken down in the interest of public safety.

The fire remains under investigation by the Hanover Fire and Police Joint Fire Investigation Unit along with the Massachusetts State Police Fire Investigators assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

One firefighter who sustained minor injuries during the incident was evaluated and treated on-scene.

Firefighters cleared the scene at 1:36 pm.

07/01/2020

Soon after the Coronavirus Pandemic changed the way we were all able to celebrate special occasions, the Hanover Fire Department began fulfilling requests to participate in Birthday Parades. During this time we were happy to be part of many celebrations. We participated in 68 Parades total.
While the on-duty shift was able to join in when available, our participation was only made possible by both Career and Call Firefighters coming in and volunteering their time.
Although we have enjoyed seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces, this short lived tradition must come to an end.
We would like to acknowledge the hard work of Firefighter/Paramedic Joe Centeio who coordinated all of the Parades.

Norfolk County Control

Members of the Department joined crews from across Southeast Massachusetts and beyond who assisted with the coordinated evacuation of Norwood Hospital this past Sunday night after significant flooding closed the facility. Check out this post from Norfolk County Control that shows the resources and operation needed to mitigate the situation. Great job by all involved.

On Sunday, June 28th at 1743hrs, the Norfolk County Control (HRECC) received a request for a Fireground channel due to severe flooding at the Norwood Hospital. FG Ch 2 was initially assigned. All four Fireground channels were in use throughout the incident. All 15 radio sites remained operational during the storms. The Telecommunicators at the HRECC/NCC did a great job of moving and tracking resources throughout this incident.

Below is a list of resources moved and hospital transports.

Why does the Hanover Fire Department have a perpetual TFR to 2500 feet and a one mile radius at Latitude: 42º05'21"N, Longitude: 70º52'16"W?
Will the Hanover Fire Department be flying Sgt. Chesna's flag? If so, there are many of us who would like to be present when transferred to our engine.
My husband got sick last September. Over the following 7 months, the HFD was called many times to take him to the hospital or just to come and help him if he needed a lift up. At no time were they anything but polite and compassionate. My husband mercifully passed away April 29th and he told me many times how grateful he was to "the boys". I'm sorry I can't offer "the boys" anything but " thank you".
Thank you so much to HFD for leading my 50th birthday "parade" on Sunday - my kids were thrilled (as was I!) More importantly, thanks for all you do to keep us safe, now and always.
Thanks to the firefighters at the Hanover House to help us celebrate our grandson’s 5th birthday. We couldn’t have a normal party but they allowed us to have fun even when we are social distancing. He was totally surprised.
Hi Hanover FD! Any chance you guys might be willing to do this too?
Hello! Please consider supporting our Army Reserve unit by liking our page! We are a Civil Affairs unit out of Newport RI. Thank you! https://www.facebook.com/443cabn/
The staff of John Curtis Free Library want to thank the Hanover Fire Department and FF/Paramedic Michael Shaw for our training in CPR/AED and First Aid! We are so grateful!
Thank you to the Hanover Fire Dept for providing their staff to assist in our 7th Annual Hanover Turkey Trot 5K! Another successful year thanks to the endless efforts of Hanover’s finest. Thank you again and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Thank you for everything that you do 24 hrs a day to help a person/persons in need. Many years ago when our daughter Erin Roberts was alive with a fatal genetic disorder -Niemann-Pick Type C, you were called to our house because Erin was having a grand mal seizure .You took Erin more than once to Boston Children's Hospital. Thank you for everything that you do. God Bless all of you..Stay safe. 😇💜💜💜💜💜💜
Thank you for being my cats favorite form of entertainment every time you bring the trucks out. She especially loves the ladder truck! She will sit and watch the entire time you are outside doing your checks :) thank you for all you do and happy new year!
