Captain Morgan Alcock | Mar 23, 2016

On March 17, representatives from the townships of Addington Highlands and North Frontenac honoured members of the Kaladar-Barrie Fire Department with years of service recognition awards. Chief Casey Cuddy and Captain Blake Garey received awards for 25 years of service.

Captain Richard Tryon was recognised for his 40 years of fire service. Captain Tryon started with the fire service in 1975 with the original Land O’ Lakes Fire Brigade. Captain Tryon has seen the department evolve and grow through the years. In 1989 the department joined with Barrie Twp. and the department was renamed Kaladar-Barrie F.D. With the formation of K.B.F.D., C. Cuddy and B. Garey joined in 1990 and around 1994 the Cloyne Station was built. The new Northbrook Station was completed in 2015.

Kaladar-Barrie F.D. has approximately 30 dedicated members operating out of the two stations. K.B.F.D. responds to 100+ calls a year, ranging from medical assists, structure, vehicle and bush fires, motor vehicle collisions, shore and vessel based water and off road rescue. The department is always looking for dedicated, energetic people who wish to help their community.
