    Sonny = very funny
    Andrew from South Amboy, NJ ... Good thing you're an EMS guy and not part of the Perth Amboy F.D. They have to be one of the worst Fire Departments I've seen, next to some of the Washington State yo-yo's. I don't know if Perth Amboy has any ghosts, but it probably has a few guys rolling over in their graves after a few of their fiascos of the last couple of years. Man they get some work. Too bad they put 3-5 guys inside on every fire while keeping every other department on the street while the building burns down. I guess the chiefs are clueless.

      Here's a follow-up to my above message: Last night another member and I were alone in the firehouse going over some fund raising materials.

      Suddenly - in just an instant - it got freezing cold and then we heard talking in the engine room. We went to look, saw nobody, but there was an odd odor in the air.

      We broke out the thermal imager, and sure enough - footprints, barefoot footprints on the floor; and handprints on the engine.

        DAMA!!! Still wish I had stories to share about this one!!! I did start my own topic for Haunted calls though if anybody would like to post on that (since this is for fire/ems houses and not any buildings where calls are at).

          At night they say you can hear whinning and crying coming from the old watch desk. Also they said you can hear loud snoring from the day room in the middle of the afternoon, near the couches that they used to lay around on all day...but nobody is ever there.
          Its a spooky place...but they say the ghosts a without a doubt better than the real thing.

            I too have heard of the strange noises that occur inside many of our firehouses.

            We have a firehouse that late at night, you can hear chains rattling at the top of the hose tower. When you turn on the light and climb the ladder to the platform at the top of the tower, nothing is there. The rumor has it that back in the 50's a probationer hung himself in the hose tower and wasn't discovered for a week.

            I can't wait to get up to Kentland to see if the ghosts of paid-men past haunt the Firehouse. Can anybody tell me who to call to get hooked-up, thanks.......Jake
            Hello....my name is Jenn. I used to volunteer in PG co. In fact I used to run with Kentland. we were in neighboring battalions, and often ran together. Their station is in fact pretty creepy, and wouldn't be surprised if it was haunted. I don't know about the whole career men angle. Kentland is the on;y station in PG co that is still volunteer. As far as I know they have never had paid men in that station. PG co didn't get paid men until the late 70's I beleive, and Kentland prides themselves on being rhe onlt "true" volley station left. But , like I said, I could be wrong. It is a good place to go and visit. They run ALOT of calls. They are usually good about letting people from out of state ride. I can give you the info you need...if you haven't gotten it already.

            When I left Ricky Riley was chief. Don't know if he still is, if not just ask for an officer

            this is another example of why REAL PG FIREMEN hate out of staters. OF COURSE 33 used to have paid men, all stations used to until about 1996 when 4,8 and 33 lost them. I also highly doubt (no offense, just a statement of fact) that a woman was riding at 33, 46 maybe, but not 33. Those of you from out of state who want to ride at 33 or any other station that allows people to ride, ya better not get hurt, because you are not gonna be covered by any medical insurance and you would probably send what ever company you were riding with out of business. Think about that before you go....

              This is to hot DAMN...

              I have never heard any station say that they didn't like having out of state ff riding at their station. In fact I think most stations like it. As for PG county always having paid men...I think you need to recheck your county history. Volunteers were there way before paid men. As for Kentland not having any female riders or any female members, I don't know ...I've been living in NC for the past year. I never rode with them, nor would I want to... I volunteered in a neighboring battalion and we often went on calls with them. You must be one of those hot shot , young , volunteers that thinks he knows everything. Thats cool, just be advised...it will get you into trouble one of these days....

                Hey hothead, or whatever your name is, let's not get this thread closed because you are being a jerk. There was no need to go off like that. I have never been to PG County, but if I were to ride, it sure wouldn't be with your company. Whatever happened to the warm reception to the visiting fireman, or, as the case my be, woman? Now this is a cool thread, let's get back on topic.

                  hot DAMN,

                  All I've heard from PG was "stop in next time you drive through" when they have heard I occasionally pass through the area in my travels... Why act like that??? Seems a little immature to me... But anyway, let's forget it and get back to the REAL topic here...

                      Maybe PG has ghosts that can type, their live members never seem to be at a loss for a comment so why should their dead ones be any different??? That's about the only way I can see this guy's post fitting in with the topic. By the way, this was said in jest so don't go and get offended by it

                        Theres' this one station in the lower part of the county that just freaks me out to go any where near it. Once I finally did, i promised my self i wouldn't again. The place deffinaltly has more than one spook in there. Found out later that one guy fell off a truck, one died of a heart attack, and one in his sleep. all in the same year.

                          To Emsgirl, In Prince Georges County the paidmen started in 1966 when then the charter went into effect. Station 33 lost there paidmen in 1995 and will not have them return again.I don't know where you were ridding but you should have known when the paid men left the 3 stations becauce it was the talk of the County.

                            Where in the topic of this thread did you see PG written? Lets cut the PG crap and get on with this thread. There have been way too many threads closed already. By the way, how did we get from haunted firehouses to PG county?
