Randy here from Ithaca NY, thought I would drop you a line on the whereabouts of your retired brush truck #138. She is leading a good life in retirement. now as a daily driver during the summer, going to local car shows and parades. still turning heads and winning trophies. I have dun little to the truck, I did however have new "highway" gears installed, so cruising along at 50 is much easier. I did replace those door mirrors with west coast mirrors and I did have stacks made and installed. I do have pix and video on my FB page if anybody would to stop in and take a look. Cheers, Randy

I just would like to commend a firefighter of yours named Dylan. This young man was on his way to work yesterday, stopped and helped me change my tire, I offered him money but he politely refused. Little did I know I would see him again later that day. He works for a ambulance company and came to pick up my mom and transfer her to a rehabilitation center. We talked and he stated he is also a volunteer firefighter and lives at the station. I used to be a volunteer in PA and we always strived to get live in members and dedicated people just like Dylan. He provided my mother with awesome care and is just an all around great guy with a kind heart.

Hello, I came across your site while researching my family tree. My Aunt Anna Foley born in New York in 1900 married Lawrence Fredrick Gamber , born in Carroll MD in 1900. I heard that the town was named after him or his family. His Parents were Albert and Ella. Does anyone have any knowledge of the towns history or could someone direct me to a website. I plan to visit the area in August . I would love to meet some of my cousins!

Of the hundreds of times I have visited your website over the years, I cannot believe I never came across your guestbook!

I have lived in Carroll County virtually my whole life; in Gamber, very near the firehouse, for about half. Even as an adult, I make sure I'm around when Santa comes through my neighborhood on the firetruck! And every time I hear the sirens go off at the station, I say a prayer and a thank you for all of the volunteers.

My main reason for signing the guestbook is to say thank you; and I apologize for it taking so long for me to do so. On August 3, 2005, I was involved in a head on collision in front of the Calvary United Methodist Church on route 91. That was easily the scariest event of my life, but everyone I interacted with that night from both Gamber and Sykesville VFDs were so professional, gentle, and compassionate. Having been as scared and disoriented as I was, you helped to quell my anxiety and, when my parents arrived on scene, ensured that they knew they're only child was ok and in more than capable hands. I was flown to Shock Trauma and I had to overcome some challenging obstacles, but I have made virtually a full recovery, almost 10 years later.

Words cannot express my gratitude, not only to those who helped to save me that night, but to all of the volunteers with Gamber VFD and to volunteers in general. You provide a truly selfless service to your community and I will forever be in awe of that.

Thank you and stay safe!

Thank heavens for a fire department like yours. I was a long-time resident of Carroll County MD since 1948. until moving to Hanover, PA in 2001.
Back in the 50's, my sister & I helped at the Reese VFD suppers, including their Oyster & Ham dinners, which, at the time, were the best in the area. When they discontinued, Gamber took up the slack. Along with my family members living in Carroll County, my husband & I travel twice a year to Gamber VFD to attend the Oyster & Ham dinners. We especially enjoyed coming from church to attend the Palm Sunday dinner. Now, I am unhappuy to see that you are not having the Oyster & Ham dinner this Palm Sunday, nor did you have the one in the Fall. Many of us, who are now up in years, are not ones to frequent dances where there is alcohol, although we do enjoy the carnicals & VFD dinners. Please reconsider having your Oyster & Ham dinners & make many seniors ahppy again! Especially my husband & me! Often times , there were people from as far away as eastern Baltimore County, Frederick, & us from Hanover, PA attending. Please, please, please.

I remember being in 3rd grade at Mechanicsville Elementary School back in 1973 and having Gamber bring a truck and dog out for fire prevention week. Back then you were in the old firehouse at the intersection of 91 and 32, across from Ford's Store.

I just wanted to thanks to the Gamber fire dept. I had an accident back in 1998 and was suprised to see the pic of my truck is still in your gallery(page2, 16 of 20,red bronco). That could have been the worst day of my life if not for Gamber and the other fire depts. My husband, boyfriend at the time was flown to Hopkins critically injured. I thank god every day that there are people in this world like your fire fighters and paramedics who saved his life that night. Your company was nothing short of amazing! Again thank you so very much

Yes, that's my real name. My stepdad's grandfather? great-grandfather? was the postmaster of the local community way long ago and my Dad says the town was named after him. I was a career firefighter in Florida for 20 yrs, retired last year and took a job as a Safety Officer with the US Forest Service in North Carolina. My son and I visited your station about 10yrs ago and was impressed with the change I had seen from a very long time ago.
Keep up the good work and Be Safe.

Great web site. My compliments to the web master. Seeing the videos and pictures brought back memories. I was happy to see some faces that I still know and happier still to see all the new faces. It saddens me to see the growing list on the memorial. I know many of those names and my prayers go out to their families. I think the memorial is a wonderful thing. It's comforting to know that my home town is a safer place with you folks doing what you do. Keep up the good work.
