By Fire Lieutenant JJ Lynott
April 21, 2024

On Saturday, April 20th HVFC Juniors participated in the countywide Junior Firefighter training day hosted by the Gamber & Community Fire Company.

The day‘s activities included:
- Overview of Reese's Rescue Squad and rescue tools
- Overview of Union Bridge's ATV and assorted equipment and capabilities
- Overview of Gamber's Dive Unit and Water Rescue Team and equipment
- How to use a fire extinguisher
- Ladders and hoses
- Fire scene "size-up"
- EMS station

Ninety one juniors from thirteen Carroll County fire companies attended.

We would like to thank the companies that supplied apparatus and their members who provided training and assisted with demonstrations. We would also like to thank Gamber for hosting and the CCVESA’s Junior committee who organized the event.

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

We are also looking for additional Junior members between the ages of 10 and 15 for more information visit our website.
