Barrington (IL) Countryside Fire Protection District broke ground May 25 for its new, $5 million Station 39 at 1004 S. Hough St.

Station 39 will be the district’s third station, and officials say it will allow the district to respond to more than 90% of all emergency calls in six minutes or less.

It’s slated to be funded by reserves, though there has been some discussion about possibly financing—sans a tax rate increase—a portion of the project.

The project includes the work of Chicago-based Studio 222 Architects and Pepper Construction of Lake Zurich.
