Fire Prohibitions

Welcome to the Barriere Fire Department

The Barriere Fire Department is serviced by a group of dedicated volunteers trained in structural and wildland fire suppression. We service approximately 2500 residents within the fire department boundary, attending to 60-100 fire calls  annually.
