    There’s something you need to know about the guys assigned to Rescue 1, whose truck sits furthest to the right if you’re looking directly at the three bay doors of the Franklin Street fire station — the same truck that both Jon Davies, Sr. and Brian Carroll rode to the Arlington Street fire.

    These are not the guys who put out the fire. Sure, they do basic firefighting procedures, but these are the guys who break down doors, enter buildings, dive under water and pry into jammed elevators. As two members – one current and one former – of Rescue 1 tell it, the “weird” or “off the wall” calls usually fall to them.

    “We have a lot of equipment a lot of other guys don’t have,” says Rescue 1 Lieutenant Joseph Gaffney. “A lot of equipment that’s not practical, or too expensive, for everyone to carry.”

    Jon Davies, a 17-year veteran of the Worcester Fire Department and Rescue 1 member, was killed on Thursday, Dec. 8 at a fire on 49 Arlington Street when he and his partner, friend and 13-year Worcester fire-fighter, Brian Carroll entered the burning building to search for what was thought to be a remaining occupant. Soon after the two entered the three-decker, the building collapsed, throwing the two friends in different directions, sending Carroll down into the basement and burying him in debris. Firefighters are hesitant to talk about Davies.

    Davies’ personal life has already been reported: he leaves behind a sister, a fianc
