Susquehanna Hose's Goll recovering from injuries in boating-related mishap

Longtime Susquehanna Hose Company member and deputy fire chief Bobby Goll is continuing to recover from injuries he suffered in a boating-related accident in southern Maryland last week.

At their meeting Monday night, Havre de Grace City Council members asked everyone to think about Goll and keep him in their prayers.

Councilman Steve Gamatoria said Goll is typically seen driving the fire truck and is "very active and just all around good family, good people, so we wish him well."

Goll was injured when he slipped and fell on a boat ramp, according to several people familiar with what happened and various Facebook posts from SHCO members.

He was hospitalized, released and came home, but then he had to go to the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore because of complications, SHCO Chief Scott Hurst confirmed Wednesday.

Hurst said he couldn't discuss Goll's condition or injuries but said the fire company members are supporting Goll and his wife, Deb, and are hoping for a speedy recovery.

"There's really no timetable; he's going to be in [the hospital] for a while," he said. "Everybody misses him."

Hurst said Goll is well known in the fire service in both Harford and Cecil counties. SHCO members have been sending cards and posting on the Facebook page: Prayers for Chief Bobby Goll.

The Facebook page received more than 800 likes in its first 36 hours and had 866 likes as of Wednesday afternoon.
