Barrington Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Barrington officials announced Thursday the hire of John Christian as the new fire chief, effective next month. Christian comes from the Grayslake Fire Protection District, where he’s been chief since 2009.

He started 33 years ago at the Grayslake Fire District, which covers about 25 square miles in Grayslake, Third Lake, Round Lake Park, Round Lake Beach, and unincorporated areas of Lake County. He has experience in heading a fire department that must navigate train blockages to handle emergency calls — a longtime issue in Barrington.

Christian is a past president of the Illinois Fire Chiefs Association and served in the Illinois Army National Guard 1/131st Infantry, where he was honorably discharged as a sergeant in 1994. He was a captain in Grayslake when he became fire chief in 2009.
