May 18, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer

Gamber and Community Fire Company: Gamber among newest companies A barn fire started it all. May 25, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer

Harney Volunteer Fire Company: Small company with a big mission Harney was home to about 250 people in 1951 when the volunteer fire company organized in town. June 15, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer

Sykesville Freedom District Fire Company: Providing service to South Carroll Sykesville's fire company started in 1933, after a blaze drew out firefighters from Ellicott City and Mount Airy. No one in the department remembers anymore what burned down, but the event was enough to prompt a few business owners to band together and establish a new company.

Manchester Fire Department: Serving the Manchester area since 1893 Incorporated in 1893, Manchester's Fire Engine and Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 is among the oldest in Carroll County. The Manchester Academy Building on York Street, which was used as a high school building at the time, was used as Manchester's first firehouse in the early days. In 1898, a building which is the present site of the company, was purchased for $725. The building needed $350 of repairs, and then the new firehouse was dedicated in 1899.

Winfield Fire Department: Company nears four decades of service The Winfield Community Volunteer Fire Department first formed in 1964, after residents grew tired of waiting for fire companies nearly 10 miles away in Sykesville and Mount Airy to answer calls in the Winfield area. At first, the company had no firehouse or equipment to work with. July 6, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer

July 20, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer

Westminster service spans 180 years The Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Company No. 1 began in 1823, when members erected a plain board fire house built with two large doors, no windows and a shingle roof. The first building stood on Church Street, and it was only large enough to hold a hand engine, according to company history. August 17, 2003 by Jamie Schmidt, Times Staff Writer
