The 2nd annual Emergency Service Gathering held in Barriere’s Fadear Park last Sunday was more than appropriate for the season due to the current wildfire risk throughout B.C.

The event was organized by the Barriere First Responders Society, featuring information booths, emergency vehicles display, a 50/50 fundraiser draw, a bouncy castle for the kids and a hamburger and hot dog barbecue by donation.

Information booths were staged around the oval by the Bandshell, including;  Barriere First Responders Society, Kinder Morgan, Canadian Red Cross, CN Police, RCMP, BC Ambulance, and Code4armour.

Funds raised from the 50/50 draw and the barbecue go to support the operation of the Barriere First Responders Society.
