April 21, 2024

Gamber & Community Fire Co. hosted a spring junior firefighter training day on Saturday, April 20, 2024. The event ran from 9:00 am through 3:00 pm. at the Gamber station and carnival grounds. Gamber Junior Fire Co. chair and advisor, Chrissy Green Yingling, coordinated the event with assistance from Chief Chad Hastings, the company's line officers, and members.

Ninety one juniors, ages 10-16, from thirteen Carroll County fire companies attended. Junior counselors, line officers, senior members, parents, and relatives of the junior firefighters also were present and assisted. Apparatus from many Carroll County fire companies participated and their members provided training and assisted with demonstrations.

Junior firefighters participated in different activity/scenario stations while learning new skills during morning and afternoon sessions.

Stations and activities included the following:

Morning sessions:

Reese's Rescue Squad and rescue tools
Union Bridge's ATV and assorted equipment and capabilities
Gamber's Dive Unit and Water Rescue Team and equipment

Afternoon sessions:

Fire extinguisher demonstrations
Ladders and hoses
Fire scene "size-up"
EMS station

Morning coffee, drinks, and snacks were provided. Lunch for all participants included Chick-fil-A sandwiches and Papa John's pizzas, cookies, and drinks.

This event resulted in a very successful day for all involved especially for the junior members who are the next generation of firefighters and EMS personnel in our county.
