Chaplain Gerry Schalk, of the Fox River Grove Fire Protection District, helped the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District (BCFPD) usher in a new era of service to the community with a New Year’s Day invocation steeped in fire service tradition.

The invocation, held during the area’s worst New Year’s snow storm in 15 years, helped mark a new beginning for the BCFPD, which began operating as an independent public safety organization just hours earlier. It was attended by BCFPD officers and firefighters, trustees and area residents.

For more information on BCFPD operations, visit www.bcfpd.org or call (224) 848-4800.
