The Barons and District Fire Department has returned to service in Lethbridge County.

Prior to Feb. 9, the department had been operating exclusively in the Village of Barons.

During their regular meeting on Jan. 24, Lethbridge County Council approved a fire and rescue service agreement between Lethbridge County and the Village of Barons.

“As the County moves to implement the most efficient regionalized emergency services system possible, we are confident that the Barons and District Fire Department will be a valuable asset in our region,” said Reeve Lorne Hickey in a recent news release.

The Barons and District Fire Department has been rebuilding its services internally since 2010. Discussions to bring the department back to service in Lethbridge County have been ongoing since last year.
