Barrington Countryside, Huntley Fire Districts enter new aid agreement

The Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District entered into an automatic aid agreement with the Huntley Fire Protection District this week.

Under the terms of the agreement, Huntley will send an ambulance to a structure fire that happens within Barrington Countryside's borders. In exchange, Barrington Countryside will send a fire engine to all fires that happen within Huntley's borders.

"We are proud to help our neighbors wherever possible," Barrington Countryside Chief Jim Kreher said. "(We) appreciate the fact that they are able to support us when we need it."

Barrington Countryside now has automatic aid agreements or partnerships with 12 Northwest suburban fire service agencies.
