The grand opening / open house on November 21 for the new Kaladar-Barrie Northbrook fire station had a good turnout. Reeve Henry Hogg and Deputy Helen Reeve Yanch cut the ribbon to start the day off. Kaladar-Barrie Fire Chief Casey Cuddy thanked the Council of Addington Highlands and the residents for the new fire hall, which has filled a great need. He said the new facilities would help in training and allow for better care of the equipment, thereby providing better service to the residents. Retired clerk treasurer, Jack Pauhl, who was very much involved in getting the project started, was also present to cut the ribbon.
Three retired members of the department were present, including founding fire chief, John Bolton. The event also included informative displays and demonstrations, including car safety information and live fire extinguisher training.
