Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:
At the beginning of the month, The Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District left CenCom 9-1-1 to join Northwest Central Dispatch System.
Deputy Fire Chief Donald Wenschhof III said the switch provides stronger, wider-ranging radio coverage throughout the district.
Barrington Countryside serves portions of Barrington Hills, South Barrington, Lake Barrington and Inverness; and portions of unincorporated Cook, Lake and McHenry counties.
The district used CenCom’s services since its split from the Barrington Fire Department in 2014.
