On May 21, 2018 at 6:15 p.m., crews from Gamber and Community Fire Company were alerted for a report of three victims in the water after their boat capsized in Liberty Reservoir. The Dive and Swiftwater Rescue Team responded with Dive Unit 13, Utility 13, Boat 13 and Boat 13-1. Occupants of another nearby boat attempted, but were unable to help the victims out of the water and on to their boat. The fishermen on the responding boat contacted Carroll County Emergency Operations Center, who notified the Gamber and Community Fire Company and Sykesville Fire Departments for their assistance. Boats from both units were placed in the water and were able to rescue all three of the victims. Team members were also able to retrieve the canoe and personal belongings and all were brought back to the shore safely. All three victims refused medical services available at the scene from Sykesville Freedom Fire Department.
