Smoke/CO detectors delivered to Barriere residences by firefighters

Barriere Fire Rescue was out in the community earlier this month during Fire Prevention Week handing out smoke/CO detectors. In the bags with the detectors were also items for kids and information packages for the family.

Package recipient Wanda Nystoruk commented, “Thanks so much to the Barriere Fire Department and Chief Ashley Wohlgemuth and her crew for bringing gift bags door to door. Very much appreciated.”

Barriere senior Elli Kohnert said, “Your dedication is inspiring. It is reassuring for us to know that you are out there not only during an emergency, but also giving of your time during Fire Prevention Week.”

Barriere Fire Rescue also advises that Halloween Fireworks will be back at the ballparks this year.

“This year we really wanted to bring back the fireworks,” said the Chief, “We are doing it a bit different this time though. We are doing them drive-in style. Make sure you bring the whole family on Sunday, Oct. 31, at the Barriere Ball Fields 7:30 p.m. Park and watch the fireworks from the comfort of your own vehicle.”
