Residents of the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District (BCFPD) will gain first-hand knowledge of firefighter equipment, tactics and training during an Open House hosted by the Barrington Fire Department, 9 a.m. – noon, Saturday, Sept. 29.
The free event will take place at the Barrington Public Safety Building, 400 N. Northwest Highway.
Family members of all ages will experience an up-close view of life in the fire service. Guests will climb aboard the fire department’s fleet of vehicles, meet firefighters and Fire District officials, and enjoy complimentary refreshments.
“The Open House is a great opportunity for District residents to view state-of-the-art life-saving technology, meet the firefighters who protect their communities, and learn how their tax dollars support fire suppression and emergency medical services,” BCFPD President Tom Rowan explains.
