Last night just after 9pm Hanson Firefighters responded to a reported structure fire with possible people trapped on Pennsylvania Ave. First arriving crews were informed by an occupant of the home a family member had not exited and immediately conducted a primary search. Unfortunately crews were forced to evacuate due to the rapidly changing fire conditions and were unable to locate the victim. Crews were on scene for several hours attempting to contain the fire. Hanson Engine 2, Engine 1, Engine 3, Tower 1, Ambulance 2, Car 60, Car 61 and 68 were assisted at the scene by Whitman Firefighters, Pembroke Firefighters and Halifax Firefighters. Hanover Firefighters provided station coverage.
Our thoughts are with the family of the victim.

If you missed it on the Departments page, an awesome tool purchased by the town to help keep the members protected.

Another tool in the fight against COVID-19! The Hanover Fire Department recently purchased the AeroClave RDS 3110 disinfecting system. The RDS 3110 allows for rapid disinfecting of areas up to 5,000 sq. feet. Hanover Firefighters utilize the RDS 3110 daily to disinfect all apparatus, including our ambulances after each call. This system takes only 16 minutes to spray a disinfectant fog throughout the entire ambulance, eliminating all potential contaminants. Additionally, this system is used throughout the firehouse to disinfect the offices, classrooms, gear locker rooms, living quarters and bathrooms. This helps reduce the risk of infection after firefighters have responded to both public residences and the hospital. These tools, paired with proper PPE and safety protocols ensure that Hanover Firefighters are healthy and response ready for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Traveling for school vacation?
* Stay in hotels or motels that have hard-wired smoke alarms and an automatic fire sprinkler system in each guest room.
* Read the fire evacuation plan carefully.
* Find the two closest exits from your room.
* Count the number of doors between your room and the exits. This will assist you if you need to evacuate in the dark.
* Find the fire alarms on your floor.

The Hanover Fire Department hosted a large scale training drill at the Hanover Mall on February 7-8, 2020. Over 120 firefighters from 11 neighboring departments participated in the two day event. Training included skills aimed at enhancing firefighter safety. A review of going through low & reduced areas such as walls and other small openings with gear and air packs on. Firefighters also reviewed techniques to free themselves in the event they are caught in wires. Firefighters also reviewed wall breaching techniques and were able to practice cutting ventilation holes in commercial roofing.

An afternoon scenario on each day simulated a fire in a large vacant department store with multiple firefighter down situations. Several rescue teams or RIT (Rapid Intervention Teams) we’re deployed simultaneously to search for and extricate the downed firefighters. The RIT crews were faced with total black out conditions, artificial smoke, loud background noise and several obstacles on their way to locating and freeing each of the simulated downed firefighters.

Facilitators of the training included Chief Officers, Company Officers and Firefighters from each of the participating communities. The ability to draw upon 11 fire departments for their expertise allowed for a successful event.

Plymouth County has a robust mutual aid system which brings fire departments into neighboring communities to assist and provide necessary personnel and resources during emergencies. While neighboring firefighters are often working side by side at emergency scenes, they seldom have the opportunity to train and practice together. This training event provided that rare opportunity.

Thank you to the Hanover Mall for offering the facility to the fire service.

Thank you to Extreme Tailgators for providing lunch to participants and to Stop & Shop of Norwell for a donation of bottled water.

“Firefighters never go on strike. That’s one of the reasons it’s the easiest department to give a budget cut to —because they’re still going to go to work and they’re still going to save lives.” Denis Leary started the Leary Firefighters Foundation with “idea that one day it would be great to go out of business because firefighters didn’t need any more funding, they didn’t need new equipment, they didn’t need new training facilities but that’s just not true and that’s not true anywhere.” Watch Episode 3, The Leary Firefighters Foundation of The Worcester 6: Heroes Remembered now.
