Annual pump testing and equipment inspections on all of Gamber's fire apparatus were scheduled for Saturday, April 14, 2018. Engines 131 and 134, Engine Tanker 133, and Brush 135 went to the Carroll County Public Safety Training Center for the testing. Each unit went individually and connected to the underground tank that supplies the water for pump testing. A series of tests was conducted on each apparatus involving drafting water, pumping with pressure, and pumping with volume. While the pump testing took place, each apparatus was inspected for all required equipment, tools, and devices.

All of Gamber's units passed the required annual testing.
