Visitors will get to mingle with the Barrington Countryside firefighter/paramedics and learn about firefighting and Emergency Medical Service (EMS).
Representatives from Northwest Central Dispatch will also bring their exhibit to explain their 9-1-1 dispatch system. Barrington Countryside recently joined the Northwest Central Dispatch System and shares a talk group with Inverness, Palatine, and Rolling Meadows.
