On 1/9/2019, Boston Fire Alarm struck a box for a reported fire on an MBTA train on Widett Circle. First-due companies had smoke showing and found a fire in a compartment. Before companies could use dry chem on the fire, command requested all southbound train traffic stopped so members could cross the tracks. The fire was quickly knocked down after traffic was stopped.

On 11/23/2018, Pepperell  (MA) firefighters were alerted to a fire in an auto shop in the north end of town. Companies arrived to heavy smoke and fire and requested a second alarm. Additional resources were requested due to water supply issues, eventually topping out at an eighth alarm with resources from around the state and New Hampshire operating. A tier-1 haz-mat response was also requested due to the materials in the building.

On Thanksgiving Day, 11/22/2018, the Lowell Fire Department (MA) was dispatched to a reported structure fire in the Highlands neighborhood of the city. First-due companies had fire showing in a two-and-a-half story, wood-frame building and quickly called for the second alarm due to the progress of the fire and exposure issues. Two exposures eventually became involved because of their proximity to the original fire building and windy conditions. A third alarm was later struck. Companies, in addition to the wind, dealt with temperatures near the single digits and icy roads.

On 10/27/2018, the Boston Fire Department received calls for a reported building fire in the Back Bay neighborhood of the city. First-due companies had fire showing in a five-story apartment building, with people trapped on the top floors. Two additional alarms were quickly struck by the IC, followed by four more as the fire progressed. The apartments largely housed students from area colleges, and was a total loss with damage in the millions of dollars.
